Global SKILup Day
Next question and hot topic in IT today: Burnout is a big problem these days. What tips do you have to prevent it?
Helen Beal
Make the work visible! And then control the flow. Then remove the waste and then accelerate the flow through automation.
Dheeraj Nayal - Organizer of Global SKILup Day🦸‍♂
That is why creating your own roadmap of Skills, knowledge, ideas, learning is very critical. It makes fun to enjoy your job, loving what you do !!
Helen Beal
Make leadership about discovery and not about management (management will be automated anyway so if you're a manager...)
Dheeraj Nayal - Organizer of Global SKILup Day🦸‍♂
Create your own tribe and learn, share, empathize. Love the Dr. Christina presentation at #DOES London this year on #burnout
Suresh GP
I think it is a growing concern. Follow the #Mentalhealth - Connect with your friends and family. Be Open and believe everyone has a tough patch. Don`t put a lot of pressure to yourself. Listen to music :-)
Jeremy Douglas
by taking dedicated time to focus on your own personal journey. Listening to music, going for a long walk, meditation - anything away from a screen!
Sanjeev Kumar
roadmap to self discovery … pathe the way to where you want to be
Jayne Groll
It is really easy to become consumed in your work but sometimes at an unstainable pace. Take intentional time for yourself - even 5 min at a time during the day.
Helen Beal
Remember human behaviour is driven by brains - seek to understand the brains!
Amanda Mattos
keep lean in mind...limit the WIP
Rose Dyson
We need more coaches, transformational leaders, DevOps Leaders, good scrum masters.
Look after people. Listen to the team and act on impediments. Give people appropriate time to do what needs to be done and to learn.
Rose Dyson
Schedule time to learn and be innovative.
Suresh GP
How do you motivate your teams amids pressure in business environment and technology landscape?
Helen Beal
1) Release the pressure! Make the work visible and control the flow 2) Give them autonomy - distribute authority and empower them 3) Give them master - let them take time to learn 4) Help them discover their purpose and align it
Dheeraj Nayal - Organizer of Global SKILup Day🦸‍♂
Sometimes the basic gives the best solution. Creating a healthy competitive friendship within Team, get them going even in crisis. This is both personal and professional.
Sanjeev Kumar
show the team how key their work is in the overall deliverable … ownership & being part of something that is great is a key motivator
Sanjeev Kumar
it should never be a race and it should never be me versus him/her …. one goal .. one team .. one time .. one success
Global SKILup Day
great question! By enabling everyone to enjoy their work and have no limits on getting the work done easily and effectively. The creation of high performance is through culture and understanding!
Jeremy Douglas
by keeping the focus on learning every single day. If the #1 goal is how to improve, the journey takes a life of its own and you reach places you never intended or thought possible!
Jayne Groll
Great question. Humans are often motivated in different ways than leaders may think. Carving out to time during the day to learn is important. Recognition is important too.
Rose Dyson
They love having the autonomy to choose the tool they want to use, play and see what they can do. So, give them a sandpit.....
Global SKILup Day
One more question! What is the most important piece of career advice you’ve ever received and why?
Dheeraj Nayal - Organizer of Global SKILup Day🦸‍♂
Challenge yourself, identify your passion, realize your dreams !!
Helen Beal
'Make yourself redundant.' Sounds bizarre - but distributing/training others in your skills or automating it let's you move to the next stage of evolution.
Rose Dyson
Trust myself.
Listen more than talk.
Sanjeev Kumar
You have the skills & acumen to start the journey … you will learn & develop as go on your way!

Jayne Groll
My first mentor advised me never take yourself more seriously than the work you do (don't let your ego get in your way)
Jeremy Douglas
Love Rose’s answer!
Rose Dyson
Don’t lie, admit when I don’t know something, admit when I recognise a mistake, ask for help.
Jeremy Douglas
help others before you help yourself!
Rose Dyson
When going for n interview, accept that it is not me who decides if I have the skills and personality they need but the selection panel.
Suresh GP
Dream Big, Believe in yourself and Follow your passion!
Rose Dyson
I am a great believer in simulations and gamification. Which simulations have you experienced? WHat was the best about it?
Amanda Mattos
I just love it too...It's specially useful in change management scenarios
Dheeraj Nayal - Organizer of Global SKILup Day🦸‍♂
DevOps Experience Simulation by @devopsinst is the most updated simulation launched recently. It bring the digital transformation to LIFE !!
Jayne Groll
Stay tuned - DevOps Institute is launching a #DevOpsExperience simulation. So excited.
Helen Beal
I love The Phoenix Project sim (and had some involvement with that!) but we also have a customer experiment with a new one this Friday in London - the Digital Transformation Experience! We will be an aviation company - so good on its test run recently
Suresh GP
I have now done over 8 different simulations covering #Agile #ITSM #DevOps #Lean #Cybersecurity #Projectmanagement and they are powerful tools to instigate practical insights
Amanda Mattos
I worked on a game to drive code quality improvements with soft dev teams and engage them to best practices, sharing, ownership and blameless
Suresh GP
I did Marslander Simulation last week at Service Management World in Orlando, mapping #ITIL4
Helen Beal
We also have another one based in the art academy in Bristol where you learn about innovation and fear of failure
Helen Beal
And another I call 'Get your wellies on' in an offshore windfarm!
Helen Beal
@sureshgp I haven't tried that one yet but it's on the list @sureshgp
Helen Beal
We've also been experimenting with Lego serious play to drive empowerment this year which has been very popular too! Quite abstract but really gets collaboration going and puts everyone in the room
Dheeraj Nayal - Organizer of Global SKILup Day🦸‍♂
Imagine Thanos snapping #DevOps a decade ago. Would the world have been the same today without
#DevOps ??
Rose Dyson
We just had to have it!!!!
Global SKILup Day
absolutely not! But, would the ideas and principles around Lean and Agile have persisted as well?
Sanjeev Kumar
.. to quote jeff Goldblum from Jurassic park 'devops would find a way'
Helen Beal
Would it just have a different name? Would it all be about SRE? Or agile at scale?
Dheeraj Nayal - Organizer of Global SKILup Day🦸‍♂
Or it would be an Advanced Software engineering or full stack engineering !!
Jayne Groll
The technological advances that support a global society would not have accelerated as fast as they have.
Amanda Mattos
DevOps rocks! even if with another name!
Jayne Groll
I wonder what we would call it if it had another name?
