To navigate this turbulent, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous reality, agile teams require an alternative to traditional leadership practices. This course covers the fundamentals of agile leadership, such as how agile leaders think, focus, and act, as well as how to create a safe-to-fail environment and foster a culture of transparency, inspection, and adaptation within your teams to allow for experimentation and continuous learning. The purpose of this training is to raise awareness of the changing dynamics in the workplace today and to provide leaders with the skills they need to manage their teams with agility.

The Agile Leadership Journey has been used to construct this training. ALJ is a global network of over two dozen outstanding agile leadership coaches and trainers who conduct consistent, high-quality interactive workshops in more than a half-dozen time zones. Pete Behrens, the creator of the CAL and Certified Enterprise Coach programs, launched ALJ.



Allow for adaptability in execution toward that objective by communicating a clear vision, aligning personnel to that vision, and realizing that the majority of discovery and learning occurs during execution.

Instead of depending on what has worked in the past, they should adopt a growth mentality that allows them to value diversity, be open to new ideas, seek criticism, and enhance their capabilities.

Are aware of their prejudices and triggers to maintain a constructive and creative attitude that fosters a healthy, collaborative, trust-based, and productive company culture.

By integrating the value stream, you may improve decision making, team collaboration, and business success in highly complex, uncertain, interdependent, and fast-changing contexts.

Inquire before advising, use active listening to align their thinking, and explore alternatives to develop creative possibilities to engage employees without over-influencing or micromanaging them.

Reduce employee turnover and increase employee ownership, collaboration, and productivity by increasing employee satisfaction, engagement, and innovation through empowerment and other trigger behaviors.

Diversify risk through identifying and testing assumptions, trying new techniques, partnering with consumers, delivering incremental value, and soliciting feedback earlier and more frequently.

Foster organizational adaptability so that they may more successfully break down traditional silos, collaborate to solve challenging problems, and align themselves more closely with corporate goals and customer needs.

Improve outcomes by balancing short-term business results with long-term organizational health to give early and frequent value while maintaining growth.

To adapt to the changing economy, technology, and market, they must catalyze change, experiment with new ideas, and develop a growth mentality within their businesses.
