Diversity encompasses more than gender and race, which creates challenges for development team members and managers. This session will help you overcome those challenges by helping senior and junior team members communicate more effectively. Kiera Prioleau will help you discover ways to tailor your communication style to fit the introverts and extroverts on your team. This knowledge will help you run effective deployments with both onsite and distributed teams. Through a production manager’s case study and other real-life examples, you'll leave with actionable steps for having a more successful, diverse, and creative development team.
