This course aims to bring awareness and understanding of the foundations/principles/practices of agile leadership. Exploring how agile leaders think and apply this to businesses, organizations, and teams. Through analysis of case studies, assessment, discussion, and evaluation, participants will gain insight into what practices will enable them to lead real change across their organization.
Business leaders and organizations today are striving to stay on top of rapidly changing business needs and are coming to understand the need to respond and adapt quickly. Business leaders are now required to shift how they think about their role as a leader, their relationship with their employees, and their organization’s culture. Agile leaders must help their organizations thrive in a volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous (VUCA) world.
Agile teams require an alternative to the traditional leadership approaches of the past to achieve better outcomes and thrive in this VUCA world (as learned in the CAL-Essentials module).
This course will also help participants understand how their natural dispositions might affect their team and how to influence the workplace, empowering teams to thrive. Leaders will learn how to create a safe-to-fail environment while fostering a culture of transparency, inspection, and adaptation to allow for experimentation and continuous learning within their teams.
