Self-Care for Agile Leaders
Servant leadership is a wonderful aspiration. Serving your team, serving your peers, serving your leaders, and serving your organization. It’s an ego-less and selfless posture and central to the agile mindset. But what often can get lost in all of this service is…service to oneself. And placing service to self above the others so that we can serve them all the better. In this collaborative session, participants will deeply explore the notion of leadership self-care. Delve into several aspects of it, exploring the notion as more than simply taking time off or exercising. Attendees as a group, will create a much richer landscape in taking care of yourself. Then take a step back and look at what gets in the way of our self-care. What are the blockers and impediments from ourselves, our teams, and our organizational culture? Discuss ways to overcome those impediments and explore a self-care canvas. Each attendee will spend a bit of quiet and reflection time filling in a part of the canvas. The session will close sharing some of the discovery and Aha’s from the group.
