Christopher Avery - Your Agile Leadership Gift

Christopher Avery /USA/

Leaders worldwide study Christopher's research because it shows them how to consciously expand their agile leadership power and ability every day so they can learn and grow faster, overcome impediments, and achieve their potential while energizing their teams and organizations.

Unlike anecdotal approaches to leadership, teamwork, and change, Christopher's approach derives from 20 years of field studies on the front lines of leadership about how personal responsibility -- the first principle of success -- operates in our minds and in our language. These rich discoveries are changing how people live more fulfilling lives, how leaders lead, how agile teams get built, and how coaches and parents teach and inspire personal responsibility.

Christopher is a sought-after, international speaker, author, and business advisor on responsible leadership, teamwork, and change for companies like GAP, Wells Fargo, and Ebay. Known for his cutting-edge work to demystify and then develop practical team leadership skills for engineers and other technical professionals, Christopher wrote the popular classic Teamwork Is An Individual Skill for everyone who is fed up with working in bad teams.

As the visionary force behind the worldwide Leadership Gift community, Christopher applies groundbreaking discoveries about personal responsibility and performance to support leaders intent on rapidly building highly reliable, agile, sustainable, and accelerating teams and cultures.

Christopher is president of Partnerwerks Inc., the company he co-founded in 1991 to document best practices for collaborating under competitive conditions. He is an agile coach with Rally Software,  teaching Scrum and Product Owner workshops. Christopher is also a Senior Consultant with the IT and Agile Project Management practices of the Cutter Consortium, a Boston-area think tank. He co-authored the Declaration of Interdependence and co-founded the Agile Leadership Network dedicated to connecting, developing, and supporting great project leaders.

Christopher earned his Doctorate in Communication of Technology from The University of Texas at Austin where he occasionally lectures. He is a Visiting Scholar at Capella University.

The author of hundreds of articles and commentaries about individual and collective performance at work, Christopher is a popular source for the media.

Your Agile Leadership Gift

Your mind offers two alternate—and generally unconscious—responses when things go wrong. One response solves problems with snap judgment, hasty advice, and evident policy. The alternate response expands the problem space for new awareness and new-found truth. You are completely equipped for both. The first is fast and solves anxiety about the problem. The second is slower, produces learning and growth, and addresses the real problem.

Agile teams and leaders worldwide are increasingly applying the Leadership Gift for optimal learning, teamwork, performance, and change.

Building or Rebuilding Great Agile Teams

Knowing how to get things done with others may be your single greatest lever for career success. Learn a proven and repeatable framework for building, leading, and re-building any team any time, regardless of your position on the team.

This framework, called the Team Orientation Process, has been successfully used by thousands of technical professionals, managers, and executives worldwide. Read about it in the classic book Teamwork Is An Individual Skill: Getting Your Work Done When Sharing Responsibility or at www.christopheravery.com/creating-results-based-teams-workshop
