Event Information

Agile Leadership Journey Online Awareness Workshops

These online workshops are designed to create the awareness & discovery about Agile Leadership Journey for leaders aspiring to lead their own Agile transition journey and co-create the Agile transition for their organizations.

The overall program has two workshop options:

  1. Agile Leader
  2. Agile Organization

Participants can choose to go through either of the programs. If they attend both, upon successful completion, participants would be awarded a credential called "Agile Leadership Journey Certified Aware Leader" credential certified by the AgileLeadershipJourney, a globally aligned community of educators and coaches inspiring and catalyzing agile leaders and their organizations.

Online workshops from July 6 - July 31, 2020 are hosted by Agility Moments, co-facilitated by the ALJ GuidesJayaprakash Puttaswamy and  Pete Behrens (Founder, Agile Leadership Journey).

Note: In July batch, in addition regular 12 modules, there would be 4 additional modules run as Global bridge sessions, facilitated by Pete Behrens.

Why Agile Leadership? 

The rise in complexity, uncertainty and rapid change have triggered an exponential change in the landscape of work. Leaders expecting to leverage their past patterns of success will fall short both in terms of fully capitalizing on their people and in terms of underperforming in the marketplace.

Agile Scaling Models are prevalent, but none of them adequately address the crucial role of the leader in modeling agile values and aligning the organization to engage and empower teams to deliver value and delight customers.

Leadership Agility is the ability to recognize your leadership patterns and biases, step out of your routine ways of thinking and responding, role model agile values and grow others and the organization.

Focus of Learning

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.

How We Facilitate Online Workshops

Visual Collaboration Platform - We use the Mural Visual Collaboration platform to provide a clear outline and path for participants to know exactly what is expected of them along with the focus of each session and pre-work required.

Modularized Education over Time - We don’t simply run an onsite workshop online. Rather, we modularize the workshop in small increments delivered in 90-minute sessions per day.

Extension Pre-work - We use a Khan Academy Style education through videos, reading and questions to be completed before cohorts meet to discuss with the guide.  

Cohort Facilitated Engagement - We break large classes into small 10-person or less cohorts for discussion. Each cohort is lead by a professional Agile Leadership Journey Guide. Cohorts stick together through the entire workshop schedule. 

Zoom Video Conferencing - We use Zoom video conferencing and request all participants enable video to further connect to their peers and the guide.

Participant Profile

Agile leadership is required across a diversity of business contexts including new product design and development, service development and delivery, business development, IT operations and security, team-oriented service and support, multi-faceted marketing and communications, and more.

Agile leadership is needed at all levels within the organization from the executive suite to the front-line managers. Whether leading projects, programs, initiatives, people, teams, departments, divisions or businesses, agile leadership can improve the leader’s ability and more effectively draw upon every employee.

Agile Leaders...

  • Communicate a clear vision, align employees to that vision, and allow for adaptation in execution toward that vision – recognizing that most discovery and learning occur during execution.
  • Employ a growth-mindset enabling them to value diversity, be open to other ideas, seek feedback, and improve their own capabilities – rather than relying on what has worked for them in the past. 
  • Are self-aware of their own biases and triggers to remain in a constructive and creative mindset fostering a healthy, collaborative, trust-oriented, and productive organizational culture. 
  • Improve decision making, team collaboration and business results when operating in highly complex, uncertain, inter-dependent and rapidly changing environments by integrating the value stream. 
  • Engage employees without over-influencing or micromanaging them through inquiring before advising, active listening to align their thinking, and exploring alternatives to foster creative possibilities. 
  • Increase employee satisfaction, engagement and creativity through empowerment and other catalyst behaviors – reducing employee turnover and developing employee ownership, collaboration and productivity. 
  • Diversify risk through identifying and testing assumptions, experimenting with new approaches, collaborating with customers, delivering incremental value, and seeking feedback & feedforward earlier and more often. 
  • Foster organizational adaptiveness enabling them to more effectively break down traditional silos, collaborate to solve difficult problems and better align toward corporate goals and customer needs. 
  • Improve outcomes through balancing short-term business results with long-term organizational health to enable early and frequent value delivery combined with sustained growth. 
  • Catalyze change, experiment with new ideas, and a foster a growth-mindset within their organizations to adapt to the changing economy, technology and the market.
