About the Talk:
Human resources for years has been dominated by long processes, complex policies, and deep rooted analytics. A fresh approach to HR takes away that people plan waterfall approach and applies people collaboration and Agile methods.
Rooted in Agile methods is Servant Leadership. Serving others and relinquishing power and control is fundamental in Agile but more importantly, a people-centered approach to success. Servant Leadership is the ability for leaders to connect with, build and grow meaningful and authentic relationships with their people in a way that allows them to truly understand them – and build their organization around personal successes.
