WHY AGILE LEADERSHIP?

Globalization, automation, regulation, and 24×7 mobility have drastically changed the landscape of work (and life). Leaders can no longer depend on their past patterns of success to operate effectively in this landscape. Agile Leadership is effective leadership in highly complex, uncertain and rapidly changing environments.

Agile Scaling Frameworks have become the goto solution for leaders globally, but are falling short in delivering the expected outcomes. This is because none of the frameworks adequately address the mindset and behavior of the leader and their role in shaping the structures and culture to enable agile practices and teams to thrive and grow.

The Agile Leadership Journey™ provides education, direction and coaching for leaders to personally navigate their own path toward improved leadership effectiveness and improving the effectiveness of their organizations.

AGILE LEADERSHIP IS MINDSET AND BEHAVIORS OVER SKILLS

It is a myth that people enter adulthood at a similar level of maturity and only require developed skills and competences to grow their capability as a leader. The reality is that maturity continues to develop through adult life and a leader’s success at one position is often not adequate to succeed in the next.

All leaders progress through development stages, but not at the same pace and sometimes not at all. Most leaders begin their journey as an expert in a particular discipline or domain. About half of leaders develop cross-discipline leadership capability and begin orchestrating others to accomplish their goals. However, less than 10% of leaders develop the highly collaborative and transformative behaviors found in catalyst leaders. This program is about developing catalyst leadership mindset and behaviors for improved leadership agility.

 

LEADERSHIP AGILITY STAGES SUMMARY

Expert Leadership is focused, hands-on and personally engaged to help solve complicated problems, make tactical organizational improvements, and direct the work of others to assist.

Achiever Leadership aligns and motivates people across organizational boundaries toward a clear and strategic direction to lead process change, improve team performance, and achieve business results.

Catalyst Leadership shares a vision and develops high participation and empowered teams to co-create that vision, lead transformative change, and grow organizational capacity.

 

AGILE LEADERSHIP DEVELOPMENT IS A CONTINUUM WITH A CLIFF

Agile Leadership is not an end-state that can be reached, it is a growth mindset with increasing awareness, adaptiveness and effectiveness. As a leader develops agility, they increase their flexibility to situationally adapt in complex environments. In essence, they see a broader landscape and have more choices available to make more informed decisions and take more appropriate actions.

The cliff occurs between the achiever and the catalyst mindset. Expert and Achiever leaders center thinking and behaviors on knowing the right way forward and either doing it themself or getting others to do it. Catalyst leaders center their thinking and behaviors on knowing the way forward is complex and their past experiences may not be the best guide. This increased awareness, combined with the courage and vulnerability to not be right, opens up others to engage and collaborate towards a way forward.

 

Every journey requires an inspirational first step to create the awareness and understanding that there is even a journey out there for you. Let us and our Agile Leadership Awareness Workshop create your inspiration to potential new leadership paths for you.

INTEGRATING ORGANIZATIONAL LEADERS

The workshop is designed for mixing experienced leaders across the business and technical domain – this is not an IT or typical Agile Practice Workshop – this is a leadership workshop focused on leadership mindset and organizational systems. By combining all parts of the business in a single workshop, participants focus on the whole organizational system. As described by participants of this workshop…

“This wasn’t an IT agile workshop, it was a leadership workshop. Leaders across the organization in Finance, Regulatory, Technology, Marketing and other business functions need to attend this workshop together.”

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-oriented approach to leadership and change.

DAY 1: PERSONAL AGILE LEADERSHIP (8:30 AM - 5:00 PM)

Explore the historical context of human development and leadership as well as the current economics driving the need for agility. Introduce the Leadership Agility Maturity Model to increase self-awareness and discover more agile thinking, decisions and behaviors.

Discover the mindset and behaviors of expert, achiever and catalyst leaders and how those impact organizational effectiveness. Practice a 5-step catalyst approach to positively impact every aspect of our work (and personal) life.

 

DAY 2: LEADING AN AGILE ORGANIZATION (8:30 AM - 5:00 PM)

Re-focus the leader towards the organization and its effectiveness of delivery customer value. Explore organizational culture, structures and processes to foster value delivery and agility. Understand a leaders’ focus and influence on the health and culture of an organization and its impact on their long-term performance.

Evaluate case studies of real organizations of different organizational cultures applying agile structures and patterns to drive effective and sustaining change with positive results. Reflect and share leader’s organizational cultures and structures in comparison to these case studies. Practice a 5-step organizational change model to guide healthy, engaged and sustained change needed in our organizations.

Jesse helps people thrive at work. As an engineer, a manager, a speaker, and an executive, he's worked with thousands of people at dozens of companies. Everywhere he goes, he sees breakdowns and breakthroughs; idiocy and innovation; pain and promise. He believes the difference between the two is leadership, and whether our managers actually do it well.

APPLIED LEARNING IS ACTIVE LISTENING, SPEAKING, DOING AND LEADING
