Focus of Learning

Leaders substantially influence an organization’s agility and effectiveness. Increasing leadership awareness and competency in their own agility as well as their competency in aligning and empowering organizational agility is challenging. This workshop provides the AHA! leaders need to first increase their own personal awareness and to kickstart their journey to improved performance.

This Certified Agile Leadership Workshop is an interactive leadership-focused workshop building skills and competencies to effectively guide and grow agile leaders, coaches and their organizations. This workshop is a pragmatic application of theory and provides concrete models, tools and techniques for leaders to employ directly in their own thinking, their own behaviors, and within their organizations.

Agile Leadership Compass

Participants will be taken through a comprehensive view of Agile Leadership - first from the leader's personal perspective in how agility impacts their thinking and behavior, then from an organizational perspective in how they can effectively align, guide and scale their organization's agility.

The Agile Leadership Compass will provide guidance for participants both during the workshop and as an aid in their practice following the workshop. See the full list of Learning Objectives of the Agile Leadership Workshop

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 for two and a half days."

Workshop Agenda

Day 1: Personal Agile Leadership (9AM - 5PM)

Start with an historical perspective of human development and leadership as well as the current context driving agility. We introduce the Leadership Agility Maturity Model to foster self-awareness of our own leadership maturity and to discover more agile thinking and behaviors. We explore the mindset and behaviors of leaders at these varying maturity levels to self-reflect on leadership traits in ourselves and others. Finally, we practice a simple 5-step catalyst conversation technique to positively impact every aspect of our work (and personal) life.

Day 2: Leading Organizational Agility & Change (9AM - 5PM)

This day re-orients the leader towards the organization and the focus of their work. Expanding upon the mindset and behaviors from day 1, we explore the organizational contexts of culture, structures and change to foster organizational delivery and agility. Two key focal points: value delivery and organizational learning.

We evaluate case studies of real organizations of different cultures applying agile structures of different patterns to drive effective and sustaining change with positive results. We reflect and share our own organizational cultures and structures in comparison to these case studies and other participant models. Finally, we practice a simple 5-step V2MOM organizational change model to guide the change needed in our organizations.

Day 3 (half-day): Focus on deepening and applying learning (9AM - 12PM)

The morning of day three provides an opportunity for participants to deepen their learning through an optional second evening social gathering and a morning reflection. It allows for flexibility in the workshop schedule to engage in an optional agile organization site visit and explore various topics more deeply. Finally, it provides for additional opportunities for leader and coach participants to share their own case studies and challenges.
