E42 - What is the Fist to Five in Agile? / How do I do Fist to Five?
Fist to Five is actual a technique used to get the pulse of a group.  Often times, if someone asks a question in a group and the loudest person answers, others are less likely to respond, if it counters what the loud person says.  When that happens, groupthink can occur, which isn’t good.  If you’re unfamiliar with the term “groupthink,” please check out my video “How to Identify and Overcome Groupthink” for more information.  Using the fist to five technique gives everyone an equal voice and you can get a feel for the group’s collective opinion, just but using your fingers.  For additional related managerial topics, purchase "Rockstar Manager: From Theory to Practice" exclusively from Barnes & Noble; watch Rockstar Manager on various streaming services, and subscribe to Dr. K - The Management Professor on YouTube. https://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/rockstar-manager-mary-kovach-phd/1139627991?ean=9781737360209  #rockstarmanager #agile #scrum #fistto5 #fisttofive #agilemethodology #score #businessmanagement #management #manager #leader #fist #businesswoman

Every meeting should have an agenda, otherwise, some attendees may ask why they are there, what you are going to talk about, or others may try to take control of the meeting.  You want to facilitate a meeting that stays focused and accomplishes one or multiple goals.  It should start and end on time, so you are respectful of everyone’s time.  If it is a mandatory meeting, that needs to be made clear upfront to all participants.  It would be helpful, if you could set up a read/receipt on the emailed meeting request as well.  For additional related managerial topics, purchase "Rockstar Manager: From Theory to Practice" exclusively from Barnes & Noble; watch Rockstar Manager on various streaming services, and subscribe to Dr. K - The Management Professor on YouTube. https://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/rockstar-manager-mary-kovach-phd/1139627991?ean=9781737360209  #rockstarmanager #agenda #meetingagenda #howtocsetupameetingagenda #efficientmeetings #mtg #nonverbalcommunication #businessmanagement #management #manager #leader #iopsych #businesswoman

Managers want to motivate employees toward the organization’s goals.  Organizations focus operations to reach predetermined goals.  The goal-setting theory has become a popular motivation theory to follow with a process popularized by Peter Drucker’s Management by Objective.  However, Ed Locke and Gary Latham are the leading researchers on the goal-setting theory.  They believe a goal is what a person is trying to accomplish through effort and behavior.  For additional related managerial topics, purchase "Rockstar Manager: From Theory to Practice" exclusively from Barnes & Noble; watch Rockstar Manager on various streaming services, and subscribe to Dr. K - The Management Professor on YouTube. https://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/rockstar-manager-mary-kovach-phd/1139627991?ean=9781737360209  #rockstarmanager #goal #goals #goalsetting #goalsettingtheory #motivation #objectives #businessmanagement #management #manager #leader #howtosetgoals #businesswoman
