     Managerial Courage

    Facilitated by Lyndsey Hansen-IT Business Analyst/Project Manager and 

    Jamie Kelly-Director, Organizational Development


    There is absolutely no question that courage may be one of the most necessary elements required to be a successful and highly regarded leader. Managerial courage is a must have in the world of change. It’s about doing what needs to be done and saying what needs to be said at the right time, to the right person, and in the right way.

    Feel inspired to speak up. Know how to tactfully dispense direct and actionable feedback to others without being intimidating. Discuss common road blocks OD professionals face and share best practices for dealing head-on with people problems and prickly situations.

    Lyndsey Hansen 

    Lyndsey is a passionate communicator, change leader, and regular boat rocker. She is currently working as a BA/PM in the IT department at Omaha Steaks. However, most of her experience has been in the area of Training & Development and OD work.

    Jamie Kelly 

    Jamie is currently the Director of Organization Development at Travel & Transport and an independent coach and consultant. Her field of work is primarily centered in OD, strengthening culture and engagement, individual coaching, group coaching (Circles), leadership development and succession planning. Jamie’s work helps others see the bigger picture, while focusing in on an individual or team’s strongest points and aligning their work for maximum impact.

     Connecting the Agile and the OD dots

    Facilitated by Leslie Reimer-Technology Manager, Gallup 


    Developing an organization to be more effective in accomplishing its desired goals is what OD is all about.  Uncovering better ways of developing software is what Agile is all about.  Connecting the dots between the two concepts is easier than you might imagine, in fact, many organizations are levering both concepts.  In this session, Leslie Reimer will share real world examples where OD and Agile connected to make a significant impact on the ability to achieve business goals.   

    Members will leave the session with a clear understanding of how OD and Agile merge beautifully to help organizations reach their goals.  After participating in an experiential learning activity that has proven to be very effective, members will see first-hand how combining Agile and OD thinking can work for them as they return to work and tackle the next big goal.


    Leslie Reimer

    Leslie recently joined Gallup as a Technology Manager and Technical Project Administrator and has spent the past 15 years as a Leader, Coach and Consultant working with companies in the Agile and OD space to include Blue Cross Blue Shield of Nebraska, Clarkson College, Mutual of Omaha, and State Farm Insurance.
