Make Your Partner Look Good

We have been taught to focus on our individual skills and talents in order to be the best. However, more and more, businesses are seeing the “Agile” light, and are moving their teams to a collaborative space. Just asking people to pair doesn’t work naturally. Being a good pair partner takes skill and practice. In this session, participants will learn the philosophy of “make your partner look good” by focusing less on themselves and more on others. Participants will learn ways to improve themselves as pair partners, how to provide valuable feedback to their partners, and get hands-on experience pairing. Attendees will walk away inspired with concrete techniques to be a better pair partner. Remember, there is no “me” in “pair”!
