Starting with Self-Management with Stephanie Ockerman


A few episodes ago, Jordan Gross and Ziryan Salayi joined us to talk about the self-management recipe. In my own experience, it can be incredibly hard to start doing self-management right. What makes it so hard is that the discussion about what we can expect from self-managing teams and what the common understanding is, is being skipped. Today author, self-management expert, and Co-Active Coach Stephanie Ockerman joins to talk about how organizations can start doing it right.

What you’ll discover in this show:

–        Self-management is supported by a good level of self-awareness

–        Self-management can be seen as a three-legged stool; Shared goals, boundaries, and clear responsibilities

–        Starting without being aligned on expectations can lead you in different directions
