The Art of Leading a Team

The Art of Leading a Team

Title: The Art of Leading a Team


Why? Because silver bullet after silver bullet, these methodologies predominantly failed to deliver the transformational outcomes that they promised. The irony is that every single one of these methodologies created value somewhere, that’s how they got popular!

The secret is simple, in all instances where they were used to achieve transformational outcomes successfully, they were used by effective leaders and applied to the proper use case. Having management or executive title doesn’t make you a leader.

Learning Outcomes & Objectives:

  • Learn How to Achieve Transformational Results Regardless of the Methodology You Use
  • The Psychology of Getting Great Results | The Difference Between a Boss & a Leader
  • Effective Leadership Requires Planning, Intentionality & Discipline | Daily, Weekly & Monthly Leadership Planning
  • Leadership Requires Preparation - How to Prepare to Lead Your Team to a WIN with an Agenda
  • Active Listening | THE Secret to Effective Leadership, Conflict Resolution & Problem Solving
  • Meetings Are a Competition, Learn How to Win & Move the Ball Down the Field As a Team
  • Establish a Cadence & Enable Self-Accountability
  • How to Stop Holding People Accountable by Helping Team Members Stay Accountable

No one hires a leader because they want their organization to be the same in six months or a year. Leadership is about change, and change is fundamentally about people. If we were to simplify the success criteria for a leader, it would be “they enable their team to get sh*t done that enables the achievement of the teams shared objectives.”

If you are a Project, Program, Portfolio, Product, Scrum Master, Change Manager, Operations or HR Manager you were hired to achieve transformational results, and enable the team to get sh*t done. You were essentially hired to change things. 100% of this presentation is about putting the how-to techniques used at 120VC in your hands.


The session is led by J. Scott, Founder @120VC and author of “The Irreverent Guide to Project Management, An Agile Approach to Enterprise Project Management,” and “It’s Never Just Business, It’s About People.” From the start of his career spent jumping out of helicopters as a rescue swimmer in the United States Navy, J. Scott has a long history of leadership, Servanthood, and bearing witness to the transformative power of getting shit done. Since starting 120VC he’s personally overseen the global transformational efforts within organizations such as DirecTV, Trader Joe’s, Blizzard Entertainment, Sony Pictures, Mattel, and others. His team’s unique, irreverent approach to change has generated breakthrough results and created meaningful jobs. In addition to being a successful entrepreneur, J. Scott is a devoted husband, father and author.
