Webinar: You're not the boss of me

Webinar: You're not the boss of me

What keeps companies from scaling productivity as much as the number of employees is the constant call for titles and new features. Command printing reduces productivity. Normally there is a hierarchical structure with a boss who guides employees. In the future, however, more loosely connected product managers should work with team colleagues at eye level. They have to organize themselves without formal authority - because nobody has an official title. I believe that this model is the future.

In this webinar, you will learn about the origins and organizational circumstances of leading without formal authority and which skills you should focus on to success in this role.

What you will learn

  • Why leading without hierarchical power is the skill of the future for agile organizations
  • Understanding the three levels of alignment needed for leading agile teams
  • How to develop empathy for peers from other domains of expertise
  • How to use the Agile Peer Canvas for a holistic perspective on team collaboration
    What to do when lateral leadership tools fail

For whom this webinar is

  • Product Managers working in cross-functional teams or environments
  • Product Designers, Engineers or other members of cross-functional teams
  • Product Leaders who want to enable their team members to lead without formal authority
