Agile Leaders must first know the landscape of leadership

 

North and south directions represent the opposing views of the leader and organization. Leaders who do not first develop their self will unlikely be effective at developing others or the organization as a whole. 

East and west directions represent the opposing internal and external aspects of the leader and organization. How leaders think impacts how leaders act. What organizations value impacts to how organizations deliver, sustain and grow.

Often the focus of most agile initiatives is toward the Southwest - focused on the organizational delivery. However, without first orienting the leaders and enabling the organization, these early results often don't last.
