On December 3-4 Symphony Solutions hosted a charity hackathon, KindHack. The event gathered more than 20 people who were dedicated to developing social-mattered IT-products for local environmental NGOs.

Hackathon started with the presentation from NGOs representatives who explained their aims and objectives. Three NGOs assigned to take part in hackathon: NGO Umka with carbon footprint project, NGO Eko Lviv, whose website provides information about recycling waste, and NGO Better Story, which planned to create an online catalog of homeless dogs hosted and sustained by volunteers.

Participants were able to choose the project they were willing to help. According to this, they divided into three teams. Luckily, each team had a Front-End and a Back-End developer, and a designer.

Participants were so passionate and involved, that even with the night coming almost everybody stayed with their teams and continue coding, discussing and looking for the best solution to implement. Many people spent the whole night in Symphony’s office, fueling minds and bodies with liters of coffee and energy drinks.

On Sunday’s evening, tired, but inspired, all teams presented a product that is ready to be tested on local hosts and go live.

It was impossible to choose a winner because everybody did their best. So, participants agreed to rely on the random luck. Seven lucky lottery winners got power banks from hackathon’s main technical sponsor  Neo Service. All participants got certificates that confirm their participation in the hackathon and some small prizes. In fact, the most rewarding part of the event was the ability to make this world a better place to live, at least for somebody, at least in some way.

As Liliana Tymoshenko, one of the NGOs representatives, stated:

“We are really amazed at hackathon’s results. It has exceeded our expectations. Our project, Dogbook was developed by developers and designer. Among them were two students, who did a wonderful job in coding Back-end with Python. I think that in this particular case enthusiasm means much more than years of experience. We are amazed how many people with truly kind hearts joined KindHack”.

LEAD module on Developing and driving good performing teams

May 27, 2016

Our new Business Unit Manager Jesper Moller delivered a training session on how to develop and drive good-performing teams using the most solid work and research on leadership in the world, and yet at the same drawing the parallel with Symphony’ core approach to training.

Developing and driving good performing teams[more…]

Gallup Research studied more than one million work teams, conducted more than 20,000 in-depth interviews with leaders, and even interviewed more than 10,000 followers around the world to ask exactly why they followed the most important leader in their life. This enabled Gallup to compare the strengths of each person on the team and to start thinking about how the organization looks as a whole. What emerged from these data are four distinct domains of leadership strength that are the necessary components of all great teams. It serves a team well to have a representation from each of these domains — whether in the leader or within the team members.

Developing and driving good performing teams

Developing and driving good performing teams

Leaders who are strongly self-aware and realistic about their own talents and strengths are the most likely to pick a team that helps shore up their weaknesses. A strong strategist, for example, will recognize the importance of having a relationship builder on board. This ability to build a well-rounded team is the mark of a successful leader, no matter which particular talents or strengths he or she possesses.

And, as always, the best way to learn and to test its usefulness is through applying it.

How to learn and how to teach

May 20, 2016

Think about anything you have recently learnt. What did actually happen to ensure the learning? What is learning? Do you know that you follow the same steps whether learning to ride a bike, a new programming language, to speak a language or to figure out how new software works?

There are two primary actions that define both learning and individual learning style. Once you understand these preferences, you can address them successfully.

How to learn and how to teach[more…]

Our training “Learn when teaching others” part 1 by Symphony Academy spell out the formula of how to engage and reach 100% of your audience or to ensure that your learning is effective. It is possible, provided one knows their preferential learning and teaching style, how our brain works, what sequence to follow, how to move through all learning stages, and what methods to apply to each stage.

How to learn and how to teach

Of course, given training is built around our integral element of development, which is PersonalColor. Moreover, this approach is complimented by the work of James Zull “The Art of changing the Brain”, where he explicitly shares his insight into four stages of the cycle: engage, share, practice, apply. “If it’s not practiced, it’s not learnt” and so the participants love this part the most, as it shows one the area of unconscious incompetence in a fun and humorous way.

How to learn and how to teach

As the main take-away from the training participants received a guide with 8-step process on how to ensure brain-based training.

Special Personal Color training as integral element of our approach

April 20, 2016

It’s not a secret that a rainbow has got seven colors. We all have our special ones. What if those colors could define your acceptance of others and vice versa? At Symphony we learn to accept all colors of the rainbow.
