The Amplifying Your Effectiveness (AYE) conference was born in a meeting of
successful, yet frustrated consultants. We were frustrated by the way
the conferences treated us and their attendees. We couldn’t change the
room setup–people were supposed to learn sitting down in chairs. We
couldn’t provide new and innovative ideas–the slides were supposed to be
submitted months in advance. We couldn’t lead participatory
sessions–people were “afraid” of those.
Ha! We didn’t think so. We thought that people who wanted to
participate in solving their problems, to seeing their human systems in
action needed a conference. That’s why we started AYE.
AYE is for people who work in technical environments where problem
solving is key–environments such as systems development, product
development, quality assurance, and information technology. At AYE, you
will experience new ways to tackle hard issues–ways that use everyone’s
creativity–and respect everyone’s humanity. We call this approach
congruent problem solving, because it stresses self-esteem,
communication, interaction, and change at three levels of improved
effectiveness–the individual, the team, and the organization as a whole.
We’re looking for participants who will participate–ask questions,
share their experiences, be part of experiential exercises, and
contribute to the session designs and content. By participating, you
will discover solutions to some of your toughest problems. Join us in
growing more functional teams, more effective organizations, and more
