    Designed to Fail in Predictable and Avoidable Ways: Teams, Orgs, People

    in Business

    Kimberly Wiefling, Founder and President, Wiefling Consulting, Inc. and Author of Scrappy Project Management recently spoke and presented 2 workshops at The Product Summit in San Francisco. She helps organizations achieve what SEEMS impossible, but is merely difficult. How? By turning managers into leaders and groups into teams. A physicist by education, she realized long ago the limits of technology devoid of human skills – the so-called “touchy feely” aspects of working in teams so vital to success, and so frequently overlooked. 

    Kimberly says, "In spite of great advances in tools and business processes, many product development teams continue to fail for entirely predictable and avoidable reasons! I'm thrilled to be invited to share my insights and experience with effective product development teams with the Global Product Management Community!"

    Primal Teams and the Power of Emotion - with Jackie Barretta

    in Business

    I interview Jackie Barretta, author of the new book from AMACOM, "Primal Teams: Harnessing the Power of Emotions to Fuel Extraordinary Performance." 

    I ask Jackie:

    What has changed in recent years that make team members’ emotions so critical to business success today?
    How does your work differ from emotional intelligence, which is quite a familiar concept these days?
    You write that negative emotions can be productive to a team or business. This seems counter-intuitive. Can you explain this and give an example?

    Jackie Barretta specializes in defining the super-energy of elite teams and helping organizations create it in their own teams. She is also a Practice Director at Virtual Information Executives, where she provides technology consulting to higher education institutions.

    Jackie has had several articles published in Information Week and CIO magazine. Her work with primal emotions in teams has won her widespread recognition and dozens of prestigious awards, including ComputerWorld’s Premier 100 IT Leaders, Information Week’s Innovator of the Year, and CIO Magazine’s Enterprise Value Award. She has served on the advisory boards of Hewlett Packard, Teradata, and the CIO Executive Council.

    She holds a bachelor’s degree in computer science from the University of North Carolina at Charlotte and a master’s degree in organizational communication from Marylhurst University.

The vigil commemorated all the transgender people lost to violence that year and began an important memorial that has become the annual Transgender Day of Remembrance.
