AGILE LEADERSHIP MATURITY IS A CONTINUUM WITH crevasse

Agile Leadership is less of a state and more of a journey. Agile Leadership is an ongoing development maturity model for leaders to continually discover and grow their own leadership effectiveness. As a leader progresses in their leadership agility, they improve their own self-awareness and action intent, they broaden their view of the organizational system to increase understanding of complexity, and are able to step back for a more expansive time horizon to make more informed decisions.

As leaders develop maturity, they are able to situationally step back to previous approaches. However, earlier stage leaders cannot access the more mature stages without significant practice and experience. This limits their effectiveness of situational leadership.
