Rethinking Agile Leadership

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

It's becoming clearer and clearer that a new perception and practice of leadership is required to unlock the potential of corporate and business agility. The reason is that Agile, with its implications of open collaboration, shared responsibility, collective intelligence and complexity mindset is a profound game-changer for most organizational cultures.

While being a manager is an appointed position with clearly defined responsibilities and powers, being a leader is a much more elusive concept -- and one that is often still influenced by mental models and assumptions that don't really fit in an Agile environment. Still, leaders play a critical role in initiating, supporting and evolving virtuous team and corporate dynamics that become the real asset of an Agile organization.

In this interactive, collaborative workshop we are going to explore the meaning of Agile leadership, and what an Agile leader is and does to foster desirable behaviors in an Agile organization. We will explore this role from the perspective of complexity thinking, since Agile leadership is inherently systemic; and we will explore the personal, individual skills that makes an Agile leader effective in the context he/she operates -- including, but not limited to, the ability to create trust, to take personal responsibility and to operate from an egoless perspective.

The contents are influenced, among the others, by works on: complexity by Dave Snowden (Cynefin framework); intrinsic motivation by Daniel Pink et al.; personal responsibility by Christopher Avery (The Personal Responsibility Process); management 3.0 by Jurgen Appelo. All these are integrated in the facilitator's own experience and perspective in evolving organizations in his role as Enterprise Agile and Executive Coach.

The workshop is designed for Agile team members, leaders, managers, executives, coaches and for all the Scrum roles.
