What you will learn:

Solving big problems and getting big things done often requires breaking them down into manageable parts. Among other benefits, this allows the work to be shared by a team and accomplished over time while ensuring that the pieces align to the larger objective(s). In this session, we will:
  1. Introduce you to the process of progressive elaboration
  2. Share real-life stories to illustrate why it matters and how it works
  3. Provide step by step instructions for how to do it
  4. Offer practical tips, trips and traps. How to know when you've gone far enough? Is it possible to go too far?

About the instructor:

A musician at heart, Joe's upbringing and work over the past thirty years across countries, languages, cultures and industries instilled a deep appreciation for the power of perspective and collaboration. He has had the great fortune to work with some truly amazing teams.

Over the following two decades, Joe's accomplishments include:
  • being part of an international team of 20-somethings that launched a phone company in Spain in 8 months,
  • designing and delivering a course on international team leadership across 16 countries,
  • helping re-design Yamaha Music Corporation's commercial process (so fun),
  • helping raise two incredible human beings, and
  • being told to stay in his box many, many times.
In 2011, Joe formed Slatter Consulting and began to assemble the lessons he'd learned over time into something that could be used to help others improve how they improve. With a history of success inspiring groups and organizations to create more value through collaboration, design thinking, change enablement, talent development, process design/improvement and organization design, he created the Better Practice methodology to help others accelerate towards better.

The company began doing business as Better Practice in 2013 and proceeded to assemble a community of over 25 talented advisors, trainers, coaches and project managers across 5 countries. When the world went remote, it was like they suddenly all joined the world of Better Practice. Having worked in cyberspace for years, we were in a unique position to help others learn how to collaborate across space and timezones.

An engaging and dynamic speaker, Joe is passionate about helping individuals, teams and organizations of all kinds achieve and maintain high performance through collaboration and sustainable, continuous improvement. His practical and personable style inspires people to activate their best self and collaborate to drive growth.

Joe lives in Colorado and supports projects, engagements and teams around the world. He orders his three most important roles as: 1. Parent 2. Teacher 3. Barista.
