Agile Leadership Development

challenges your leaders to change the way that they think so that your teams can change the world.

Leaders today are making decisions in increasingly fast moving and ambiguous domains. Robust leadership teams with an appreciation of complexity are critical. Agile Leadership Development enables Business Agility, the heartbeat of 21st century organisations.

Our Approach

We use a range of tools to help leaders to understand and navigate complexity:

  • Cynefin Framework and Sensemaking techniques
  • The Leadership Circle
  • The Leadership Maturity Framework
  • GameChanger Index
  • Agile Fluency Model
  • Mindfulness Facilitation
  • Growth Mindset
  • Management 3.0

Agile Leadership Coaching

Experience has taught us that trying to shoehorn egalitarian frameworks into authoritarian cultures is doomed to fail. We work with your leaders to help them recognise their reactive tendencies and harness that power for truly positive change.

Agile Operating Model Design

We go way beyond the Spotify or ING Model to collaboratively build fit-for-purpose Agile Operating Models for your delivery teams. We support you with agile team design, agile business unit design, agile job descriptions and career frameworks, prioritisation, governance and funding models.
