Agile Leader & Agile Organization
Agile Organization Online Workshop Details
Developing organizational culture awareness and alignment with agile ways of working to improve teams, scaling and business outcomes.
The Agile Organization Workshop provides education for leaders in understanding how to shape the macro culture by identifying and modifying structures, policies and measures to align values and drive behavior to support agile ways of working.
We introduce cohort participants and their guide, build working agreements, and dive into organizational culture and how those values can both inhibit and enable more agile ways of working.
We compare outside-in and inside-out approaches to adopting more agile ways of working across the organization. Explore case studies in how other organizations have shaped their culture through changing structures, policies and measures.
Leveraging the previous two modules as the core learning, we leverage this session to focus on their organizational culture, and the structures, policies and measures that are key to influencing it. Further, they create a direction to shape a desired culture as influenced by experiments to try.
Following the discovery of the desired culture to shape, and potential experiments to influence that shape, leaders will explore together on one prioritized change to focus and create an actionable plan using a V2MOM to align them and their stakeholders on that change.
Change creates a threat to many within the organization. The challenge is that it impacts each employee differently. Navigating the transition caused by change is a key responsibility of an agile leader. We explore healthy transitions and the leaders role in creating such an environment.
Finally, we don’t leave leaders with only a “that was fun” feeling, we help them identify clear action plans to carry forward in their practice following the workshop. We introduce a 4-meeting protocol for leaders to operate effectively every day, week, quarter and throughout the year.
Online Workshop Details
Developing leadership self-awareness, capacity and situational agility to improve team productivity and business outcomes.
The Agile Leadership Workshop provides education for leaders in understanding how they can shape micro-culture through their own thinking and behaviors to support agile ways of working and improve business outcomes.
We introduce online program participants and their guide, build working agreements, and discuss the business case for agility covering the increasing speed and complexity of work and the management trends which have followed.
We introduce the Leadership Agility development model and illustrate thinking and behaviors at multiple stages. Discuss how expert, achiever, and catalyst leadership approaches can be situationally applied at work.
The #1 request we hear from prospective participants is “quit telling leaders what NOT to do and help them with what TO DO”. We provide leaders clarity, beyond a servant leadership approach, in how to situationally adapt, engage others, improve their own awareness and catalyze growth in the organization.
We learn and practice a simple, yet powerful, conversational tool to help leaders practice catalyst leadership in every conversation at work (and home!). This tool helps leaders balance their power style and empower employee action.
Feedback is a fundamental principle of an adaptive, empirical process. We help Agile Leaders to create safe spaces for effectively giving AND receiving feedback through cognitive awareness and tools to lower the threat of feedback.
We help leaders self-identify their key habits and show how identifying and practicing new habits will increase their leadership capacity and effectiveness. Agility is not a one-time event, rather it is a life-long mindset of curiosity, learning and adapting.
