Free Evening event: Leadership Development for Agile Leaders, January 14th
“Bring a client” – Free evening event at Crisp, January 14th 18:00 – 20:30
Come and explore how you can think and act as an agile leader to be successful with your agile initiatives.
Agile in its essence is about close customer collaboration, rapid learning and innovation. It is based on motivated individuals and self-organized teams working across organizational boundaries to optimise flow of value to users throughout the whole organization.
Agile leadership is about creating the right environment for the agile organization to flourish. It is also about failing fast, and making impediments visible so that we can act on them. The impediments we need to surface and act on are not only external but also hidden in our own leadership behaviors. We need to increase our awareness to become conscious of how we act as leaders so that we can surface unproductive actions and address them.
Your successes from the past may now become the biggest obstacles in an agile, more complex and dynamic environment. What you have learned to work with in the past will rarely give you the wanted results in the future. This means we have to develop our inner and outer game as leaders to match the complexity of our environments.
We will do experiential exercises for you to get a taste of how you as leaders and as a team are contributing to reaching the expected benefits of your Agile/Lean initiatives, but also how you unconsciously might be putting up blocks to reach it. When we see this blocks we can clear them. The workshop is based on the newly released book, Mastering Leadership. (You will have the chance to win a copy at the event).
Targeted at progressive leaders/managers and their coaches (HR, consultants, etc.).
We aim for a room with a good balance of leaders/managers and coaches so that we can do some really exciting exercises where we can role play some dynamics that typically play out in real leadership situations. Hence the reason for coaches to bring a client.
The benefit for manager/leaders will be to see how unknown assumptions in our leadership either supports or hinders our leadership effectiveness. The benefit for coaches will be to understand how they can be better coaches for their leaders in agile complex situations.
The workshop will be lead by Jonathan Reams and co-facilitated by Michael Göthe
