Product Owner Group – Nov: Awareness to Act

Awareness to Act
We strive to help people and teams improve their effectiveness and interactions but we often find ourselves without objective data, jumping to conclusions and operating out of assumptions. Blinded by our own perspectives, we end up using ineffective approaches to address the least impactful issues. Ultimately, our efforts do not resonate, the mindsets of those around us do not shift, and we are left wondering why our impact isn’t bigger.

Whether you’re trying to figure out how to help your team improve, manage stakeholder input, or mentor a leader, the keys to unlocking your influence are increased awareness, open analysis, and intentional action. Come learn about and apply the Awareness to Act Canvas and the set of skills it prompts you to use. You’ll be able to build a backlog of targeted, impactful actions, and then use the canvas to see the impact. With some focused and intentional effort, you can increase your awareness to enlarge your influence.
