I met Yves at the first BarCamp in Ghent. I attended two presentations: one about ‘the myth of self-organizing teams’, the other one about ‘the talking steak’. In the first presentation Yves described the live cycle of a team. Looking back on over 10 years of experience in the IT world (time flies), I saw a lot of truth in the theory forwarded by Yves. Actually, Yves puts the theory into practice for a living, and I was eager to go to his second presentation: not really a talk, but a workshop in groups of three. With a seemingly (!) “simple” exercise Yves managed to prove how difficult it is to listen to people. Both presentations were very interesting
