Certified AgileLeadershipJourney Awareness Workshop
This agile leadership workshop meets the awareness & discovery credential certified by the AgileLeadershipJourney, a globally aligned community of educators and coaches inspiring and catalyzing agile leaders and their organizations.
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.

The workshop is designed for mixing experienced leaders and experienced coaches in a way that draws upon each others' strength and caters to each of their growth needs. 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 for two days."
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.
