  • Joanna Barsh: Centered Leadership – Being at Your Best – More of the Time

    WordCamp US 2018Speaker: Joanna Barsh

    December 29, 2018 — In 2008, Joanna led colleagues at McKinsey & Company to develop and teach a new form of leadership that enables everyone, not just leaders, to be at their best more of the time. Today, the program is based on 400+ interviews with remarkable women and men leaders around the world – along with quantitative research, academic learning from a range of related fields, and a decade of field-testing.

    Called Centered Leadership, this approach helps you build personal mastery of your own thoughts, feelings, and actions to inspire and unleash positive change. And it starts with self, becoming the change you most want to see. Imagine building on strengths, pausing in the midst of upset, forming trust-based relationships, engaging hope and fear to act boldly, and practicing recovery consciously to sustain your energy. Imagine finding your center when you need it most to improve your experience at work and in life. In her interactive session, Joanna will guide you through tools and practices with an invitation to (re)discover one insight about yourself at work or in life that sparks curiosity to explore more.

  • Boone Gorges: À coeur ouvert: compétences non techniques et leadership des logiciels libres.

    WordCamp Paris 2018Speaker: Boone Gorges

    March 29, 2018 — Etant donné que les logiciels sont composés de code, on s’attend généralement à ce que leurs chefs de projet aient démontré des compétences techniques pour construire, maintenir et supporter ces logiciels.

    Or sans le facteur humain, points de logiciels, de maintenance ou de support ! Les femmes et les hommes qui participent bénévolement à un projet comme celui de WordPress proviennent de milieux variés, ont des motivations très différentes, et ne partagent pas toujours les même attentes par rapport à leur investissement personnel. Pour comprendre et manager une telle équipe et une telle diversité, le leader – qu’il encadre des développeurs ou pas – doit également posséder un ensemble de compétences qui relèvent moins de la technique et beaucoup plus de la gestion des relations humaines.

    Je vous propose d’explorer ensemble ces compétences « non techniques » en m’appuyant sur les leçons que j’ai apprises suite à 8 années de leadership des projets WordPress et BuddyPress.

    En partageant un certain nombre de mes propres expériences, j’espère illustrer et vous convaincre de l’importance de l’empathie, de l’amitié, de l’humilité, et des relations humaines dans le management technique des projets de logiciel libre.
