The Demartini Method is the creation of by Dr. John Demartini, one of the leading human behavioral specialists in the world, and one of my mentors.

It is the most powerful method I've ever experienced to support a person to eliminate unproductive behaviors, fears, and regrets, while simultaneously enabling that person to tap into their greatest talents.

The people I've coached in the software development industry who have taken on the challenge of the Demartini Method have experienced greater and more lasting results than those who want to stick to more mainstream agile/SAFe(R) coaching methods.

I challenge any executive or leader who wants to make a lasting impact on any organization to speak with me about advanced mindset coaching with the Demartini Method combined with the Energy Leadership Index (ELI) Assessment and the SCOPE app - the  most powerful mindset measurement tools available.

Demartini Values Facilitator

The Demartini Values Determination Process is the creation of by Dr. John Demartini, one of the leading human behavioral specialists in the world, and one of my mentors.

Imagine the difference between a crew team rowing in cadence and unison versus the same crew team row haphazardly and against each other. The same team members, the same equipment, yet radically different results due to simple alignment and cadence. The same results can be achieved by agile teams and organizations by aligning individuals and teams to the values of the organization.

I challenge any executive or leader who wants to unleash the power of an aligned organization to speak with me about implementing the Demartini Values Process with a program, a team of teams, an Agile Release Train (ART) - whatever you call it in your company. Even better, we can demonstrate measurable results over a three-month period with AgileCraft®.

The Values Factor book explains the fundamentals of the Demartini Values Determination Process. I highly recommend it to everyone. You can determine your own values online here.

Guiding Companies and Teams to Embracing an Agile Mastery Mindset Requires a Coach with Relevant Professional and Life Experience

Peter Jessen works with companies transitioning from the command-and-control waterfall development mindset to the collaborative partnering agile development mindset. Peter guides companies in unleashing the power of the Agile Mastery Mindset – a mindset centered on continuous improvement and collaboration across the enterprise; a mindset resulting in higher-quality software and services, happier customers, and high-functioning, constantly-improving, self-organizing teams.

Through his unique background of 30+ years’ experience as a Naval Officer, project manager, innovator, and process improvement expert; combined with his formal training as a COR.E Performance Dynamics Specialist and Demartini Values Facilitator, Peter guides companies through the Agile Mastery Mindset transformation resulting in higher margins, innovative new products, and greater collaboration from the boardroom to the development teams.

What do you really want to achieve as a company? Agile, when done right, is much more than improving software development, it’s about transforming everything a company does – from marketing to product development to operations. What legacy do you want your company to leave?

Peter is fiercely committed to the success of every client. He has personally experienced the negative effects of a command-and-control mindset on the effectiveness and creativity of development teams and a company in general. While working for some of the top consulting firms in the world, including Deloitte Consulting and The MITRE Corp., Peter led transformational software development efforts at organizations as diverse as MCI Communications and Veterans Health Administration (VHA).

Peter began his career as a United States Naval Officer. In the span of two years he saw the impact of three different leaders on the same crew. One was average, one was terrible, and one was great. The great leader brought out the best in the crew. Every team performed at a high-level and supported every other team. He never forgot that lesson when he went into consulting and formal coaching. The same servant leadership qualities are critical in an Agile transformation to enable an organization and its teams to reach their highest potential.
