Over three months, John Le Drew recorded over 75 hours of interviews with some of the most respected people in the industry—including Christopher Avery, David Marquet, Jerry Weinberg, Esther Derby, Johanna Rothman, and Woody Zuill—to produce an audio documentary that attempts to answer the question “What is safety, and why is it important anyway?” John also draws on his new podcast, The Agile Path, the first season of which deals with safety in teams. John shares his findings as he guides you through an interactive, hands-on journey to understanding safety that includes short interactive sessions and role-playing exercises. You’ll learn what psychological safety means and understand why it’s foundational to team effectiveness.
John Le Drew is founder and principal at consulting firm Wise Noodles, where he focuses on facilitating a safe, creative, collaborative environment. John’s move into consultancy has taught him the value of team dynamics and that most technical challenges are projections of underlying issues with collaboration. Previously, John spent most of the last two decades working in the software industry, focusing on web technologies, which included 10 years as a software engineer.
