Why Agile Leadership?

Globalization, automation, regulation, and 24x7 mobility have drastically changed the landscape of work (and life). Leaders can no longer depend on their past patterns of success to operate effectively in this landscape. Agile Leadership is effective leadership in highly complex, uncertain and rapidly changing environments.

Agile Scaling Frameworks have become the goto solution for leaders globally, but are falling short in delivering the expected outcomes. This is because none of the frameworks adequately address the mindset and behavior of the leader and their role in shaping the structures and culture to enable agile practices and teams to thrive and grow..

The Agile Leadership Journey provides education, direction and coaching for leaders to personally navigate their own path toward improved leadership effectiveness and improving the effectiveness of their organizations.

AGILE LEADERSHIP IS DEVELOPING MATURITY OVER SKILLS

It is a myth that people enter adulthood at a similar level of maturity and only require developed skills and competences to grow their capability as a leader. The reality is that maturity continues to develop through adult life and a leader's success at one position is often not adequate to succeed in the next. 

All leaders progress through maturation stages, but not at the same pace and sometimes not at all. Most leaders begin their journey as an expert in a particular discipline or domain. About half of leaders develop cross-discipline leadership capability and begin orchestrating others to accomplish their goals. However, less than 10% of leaders develop the highly collaborative and transformative behaviors found in catalyst leaders. This program is about developing catalyst leadership mindset and behaviors for improved leadership agility.

Agile Leadership is a life-long journey of experimentation to explore new thinking and behaviors and practice to embed new habits.

AGILE LEADERSHIP MATURITY IS A CONTINUUM WITH crevasse

Agile Leadership is not an end-state that can be reached, it is a growth mindset with increasing awareness, adaptiveness and effectiveness. As a leader matures in their agility, they increase their flexibility to situationally adapt in complex environments. In essence, they see a broader landscape and have more choices available to make more informed decisions and take more appropriate actions.

The crevasse occurs between the achiever and the catalyst mindset. Expert and Achiever leaders center their thinking and behaviors on knowing the right way forward and either going their or getting others to go there. Catalyst leaders center their thinking and behaviors on knowing the way forward is complex and their past experiences may not be the right way forward. This increased awareness, combined with the courage and vulnerability to be wrong, opens up the organization to engage and co-create the way forward.
