The Myth of the Annual Performance Review with Esther Derby

Hosts Andy Cleff and Jenny Tarwater, Enterprise Agile Coach at Agile Velocity, chat with Esther Derby about the myth of the annual performance review. They uncover how the ritual reinforces existing power structures and diminishes safety for teams.

They then explore ways to help people to be more successful in their roles. Things like regular feedback as a means to influence future behavior, and recognizing that performance is always a function of a person plus their environment.

High Performance Teams Explored

The theme for the show is High-Performance Teams – explored through the lens of a rather unusual team-building event.

A 15 day, 5,000 km trek from the Atlantic to the pacific coast of Canada, followed by a jaunt in Hawaii – competing against three other teams on different continents.

Hosts Andy Cleff and Richard Dolman chat with the crew from BW Bacon about their experience participating in Race to the Center of the Earth.

Who Decides Who Decides: Getting Started with Sociocracy

So many groups form. And so many groups fade. What distinguishes those groups that grow and flourish from those that fade and fail? Agile Uprising host Andy Cleff chats with Ted Rau, from Sociocracy for All, about using intentional processes to establish an inclusive group culture early on to grow and flourish without governance troubles getting in the way – while keeping all eyes on a shared purpose.
