About this Tutorial

What do punishment and humiliation look like in a professional context? Are they ever justified? Why do we use punishment as parents, as a society or as leaders? And most importantly, does it work? Or rather, does it work the way we expect?

In this interactive session we will explore what these behaviours look like in a professional context, and get to grips with the difficult questions of why we do it and whether we need it. And while we're at it, do we need to blame at all?

This will be a deep journey discussing, for many, challenging topics: expect to be disrupted!

About the Speaker

John has spent most of the last 2 decades working in the software industry, with a focus on web technologies. After 10 years as a software engineer John moved into consultancy, where he quickly learned the value of team dynamics and how most technical challenges are projecting underlying issues with collaboration. So his focus shifted; while still being very involved technically, he concentrates on facilitating a safe, creative, collaborative environment.
