The Skilled Agile Leader is a deep and transformative learning experience that addresses both the doing and the being of leadership agility in a highly practical and immediately applicable way. Whether you are a Scrum Master, Agile Coach, Enterprise Coach, HR Director, change agent, or senior VP, you will find yourself coming out of this workshop not only equipped with a new suite of practices and tools, but personally transformed in your relationship to yourself as a leader.
Rather than learning about agile leadership (through PowerPoint slides, tools and abstract models) participants in this 3-day workshop engage in an experiential and highly interactive learning journey that gives them insight into their own leadership operating system—how it works and how to improve its agility.
Built around a series of high-impact learning activities, the workshop helps participants uncover and move beyond the limitations of their own leadership--whether they are a team member, Scrum Master, HR professional, or manager--and increase their ability to catalyze the emergence of leadership agility--both within themselves and in others--through skillful dialog, communication, and collaborative interaction.
