Certified Agile Leadership® 19.11. - 20.11.2019 in Cologne

 

Today’s workplace is a fast-paced “race” on a complex and uncertain global field. Traditional leadership thinking and practices are failing to meet today’s challenges. Leader’s must more effectively engage employees, foster creativity, speed delivery and mitigate risk to outpace the competition. Innovation is the only competitive barrier remaining.

The Certified Agile Leadership® Workshop with Sohrab Salimi (Certified Agile Leadership Educator®) is an interactive leadership-focused workshop building skills and competencies to effectively guide and grow agile leaders, coaches, and their organizations to perform more effectively in this fast-pace, complex and uncertain environment. Leaders substantially influence an organization’s agility and effectiveness. 

This two-day workshop focuses on the leader’s own awareness and capacity to effectively guide and grow their organization’s capacity. It is the first step – the AHA! – in the leader’s journey toward improved performance and outcomes. It is the only Certified Agile Leadership class in Germany that follows the Agile Leadership Journey (ALJ) curriculum and qualifies you for the ALJ CAL 2 program. The Agile Leadership Journey is the world's most respected curriculum with leaders attending from a wide range of industries and geographies. Many companies across the globe such as Swiss Re, Sanofi, McKinsey & Company, ADCB, and Danske Bank are applying the Agile Leadership Journey internally to equip their leaders with the necessary knowlegde and skills to succeed in the 21st century. 

The workshop is taught by Sohrab Salimi, who is a global thought leader in the areas of agile, strategy, innovation, and leadership. Sohrab is a partner in co-developing the program together with Pete Behrens.

The courses will be held in English or German. Please pay attention to the respective course language when booking.

Course Details

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 increase their own personal awareness and to kickstart their journey to improved performance. The Certified Agile Leadership® Workshop with Sohrab Salimi (Certified Agile Leadership Educator®) is an interactive leadership-focused workshop building skills and competencies to effectively guide and grow agile leaders, coaches, and their organizations to perform more effectively in this fast-pace, complex and uncertain environment. This workshop is a pragmatic application of theory, enriched with many real life examples and provides concrete models, tools and techniques for leaders to employ directly in their own thinking, their own behaviors, and within their own organizations.

Scrum Academy - The Agile Leadership Compass Model

Agile Leadership Journey Participants will explore 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 (displayed above) will provide guidance for participants both during the workshop and as an aid in their practice following the workshop.

This 2-day workshop is structured in two parts:

Day 1 - Focus on the Leader and Leadership

  • Context for Agility - Participants take a historical tour of management styles and industry trends driving the need for increased creativity and agility.
  • Leadership Agility 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.

 

 

Day 2 - Focus on the Organization and Change/Transition

  • 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.

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.

After successful participation in this 2-day class, every participant will receive the Certified Agile Leadership® I (CAL-I) certification from the world's leading agile organization the Scrum Alliance.

The Certified Agile Leadership® I (CAL-I) Workshop assumes basic understanding of the Agile Principles and the Scrum Framework.

Our aim is to help in the development of true Agile Leaders. Leaders who ...

  • 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 earlier and more often.

  • Foster organizational adaptivity 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.
