Helen Russel Atlassian - Culture Summit Keynote
Helen Russell
Chief People Officer at Atlassian

Atlassian recognizes that the ever-increasing complexity of work in our gig economy has thrust teams into a new role: they are the growth engines of business. The company has studied and worked with hundreds of teams over the years—technical and leadership, small and large, diverse and homogeneous. And along the way, Atlassian has learned a few things about what derails team health and performance and what empowers teams to stretch, fly and be the very best they can be.

This opening keynote will explore team dynamics and best practices, and how to overcome issues including trust, clarity, communication, and prioritization. While research proves that the introduction of a diverse team member materially increases the impact of a team, Atlassian recognizes that to truly maximize team impact requires a greater understanding of what is going on at the individual level.
