Introduction


Agile Leadership Workshop

Start your Agile Leadership Journey today by attending an AHA ! awareness leadership workshop.

Your First Step: Awareness of a new Path

Every journey requires an AHA! first step to create the awareness and understanding that there is even a journey out there for you. This Certified Agile Leadership Workshop provides the awareness of the path and your potential starting point on that path. 

Agile Leadership is not something that can be fully learned and practiced in any single education session. Rather, it will require continued learning and practice to develop into an effective agile leader. However, this workshop represents the starting (or reorientation) point on your journey.

Key Modules Explored in the workshop

  • Context for Agility - Participants take a historical tour of management styles and industry trends driving the need for increased creativity and agility.
  • Leadership Maturity  - Participants explore and self-assess their leadership maturity and its relation to increased creativity and agility for improved outcomes.
  • Neuroscience of Leadership - Participants delve into the fundaments of brain research from threats on status, autonomy, fairness and change and how leaders can improve outcomes through cognitive responses.
  • Catalyst Conversations - Participants learn and practice a simple 5-step technique to reduce threats, increase creative outcomes, and empower others in any conversation, team meeting or organizational initiative.
  • Organizational Culture - Participants examine the Competing Values Framework, and organizational culture diagnostic, to better understand organizational values and their impact on change and agility.
  • Organizational Change - Participants walk through 3 interconnected change models to better understand the organization as a complex adaptive system and how to guide change that sticks.
  • Organizational Case Studies - Participants explore course-led and participant shared case studies to evaluate governance, metrics, and structures which impede or strengthen organizational agility.

Integrating Organizational Leaders and Enterprise Coaches

The workshop is designed for mixing experienced leaders and experienced coaches in a way that draws upon each strength and caters to each of their needs for growth. By combining both in a single workshop, participants engage with each other to learn the strengths of the others - growing both leaders and coaches. As described by participants of this workshop...

"This wasn't training, it was an experience. We were never taught at, we were engaged in a learning experience in which we both participated and contributed. I have never been so engaged and learned so much for two and a half days."

Understanding that any approach to change only works in the context of the organization in which you are applying it. Rather than taking a one-size-fits-all approach, this workshop centers on a culturally-sensitive approach to leadership and change.

Organizational cultures have different and at times opposing value systems in which adapting agile practices will be significantly impacted. Understanding these cultures and how they impact the leaders influence provides a pragmatic approach to apply.
