Less is more - how we squeezed our working week and improved in every aspect

A year later, they made an extensive experiment in which the Sage Israeli R&D hub adapted the 4-day workweek, Segev offers his perspective on measuring results rather than time, increasing team engagement, reducing stress, and finding the true balance between work and life while delivering without compromises.

Patricia Kong, Scrum.org
If you want your teams to be curious, you need to facilitate better
The goal of curiosity is to further one’s understanding, yet research shows that only about 5% of team members consider curiosity to be a skill that is valuable for organizations in the future*. Curiosity, “the strong desire to know or learn something” is what helps people seek achievement and further develop their mindsets. It invites feedback. In the context of an agile or Scrum Team, it’s what helps them improve their capabilities, identify customer satisfaction gaps and deliver values.
Agility is based on curiosity and it's an agilist’s superpower, yet it needs effective facilitation to be unlocked and nurtured in a team. In this talk, Patricia Kong explores how to use curiosity as the building block for growth. She shares how facilitation can help spark a curious culture in the organization and especially during the Scrum events with some tangible tips along the way.
Why curiosity is a human characteristic that diminishes and how that can affect teams and organizations
Why the lack of curiosity in organizations is a sure way to maintain the status quo and reduces its ability to pivot quickly
How effective facilitation turns curiosity into action
