The first coaching circle for the year is about change leadership, and practicing some coaching.

A story of networked learning at Telia Company Finland

"Antifragile" is a philosophy developed by world-renowned risk analyst and scholar Nassim Nicholas Taleb. According to it antifragile systems not only withstand volatility, randomness, disorder, and stressors but rather improve from them. One example used is the ancient Greek monster Hydra, who after losing a head grew two back. Many think that modern equivalents can be found from Agile, DevOps and Lean Startup approaches.

In this presentation, we dig into how antifragile models have been deployed into Telia Company Finland, one of the biggest companies of our small nation. Everything revolves around "tribes" who make progress in their respective fields of interest; some are immersed in legacy environments, waterfalls and something as trivial as communication challenges while some have gotten the privilege to progress initiatives such as IoT, cloud platforms and healthcare solutions using more contemporary work methods. Wonderful things can be seen everywhere as the tribes weave relationships and ultimately form a cell structure that through networked learning improves from change, chaos and even adversities, and for its part realizes the antifragile ideal.

Come to see what has been achieved after two years of work, and discuss the results.

After Sami's presentation and follow-up discussion, we organize a coaching exercise, where you can practice the art of coaching in a safe environment.
