Looking for a Certified Agile Leadership course online with the best Agile trainers?
We adapted our 2-day Shaping Culture onsite workshop into two independent online programs focused on the leader and organization.
Furthermore, we have modularized and personalized our online learning experience to be impactful and effective.
Personal 6-Member Cohorts
We break large classes into small 6-person or less cohorts to foster safety, engagement and discussion. Each cohort is lead by a professional Agile Leadership Journey Guide.
We break our workshops into bite-sized learning modules engaging leaders in 60-90 minute sessions to flexibly enable learning at work and home.
Global Online Education
This program enables you to stay at home and work. We require NO in-person travel or in-person classroom time. All sessions are facilitated remotely via web conferencing.
Learning Management System
We build our online programs on the #1 LMS - Open edX, supported by IBM, Microsoft, Harvard, MIT and more. We integrate the agenda, videos, documents and assignments.
Khan Academy Style Learning
We leverage an industry standard online learning approach using Khan Academy Style where participants explore some education through videos and self-discovery to leverage more engagement and practice together.
Overview: Agile Organization Workshop
The Agile Organization Workshop provides education for leaders in understanding how to shape the macro culture by identifying and modifying structures, policies and measures to align values and drive behavior to support agile ways of working.
Module 1: Program Kickoff & Organization Culture
We introduce cohort participants and their guide, build working agreements, and dive into organizational culture and how those values can both inhibit and enable more agile ways of working.
Module 2: Agile Organizations
We compare outside-in and inside-out approaches to adopting more agile ways of working across the organization. Explore case studies in how other organizations have shaped their culture through changing structures, policies and measures.
Module 3: Shaping Culture With Structures, Policies And Measures
Leveraging the previous two modules as the core learning, we leverage this session to focus on their organizational culture, and the structures, policies and measures that are key to influencing it. Further, they create a direction to shape a desired culture as influenced by experiments to try.
Module 4: Alignment & Co-Creating Change
Following the discovery of the desired culture to shape, and potential experiments to influence that shape, leaders will explore together on one prioritized change to focus and create an actionable plan using a V2MOM to align them and their stakeholders on that change.
Module 5: Leading Change In An Agile Way
Change creates a threat to many within the organization. The challenge is that it impacts each employee differently. Navigating the transition caused by change is a key responsibility of an agile leader. We explore healthy transitions and the leaders role in creating such an environment.
Module 6:Workshop Closure & Taking It Forward
Finally, we don’t leave leaders with only a “that was fun” feeling, we help them identify clear action plans to carry forward in their practice following the workshop. We introduce a 4-meeting protocol for leaders to operate effectively every day, week, quarter and throughout the year.
Overview: Agile Leader Workshop
The Agile Leadership Workshop provides education for leaders in understanding how they can shape micro-culture through their own thinking and behaviors to support agile ways of working and improve business outcomes.
Module 1: Workshop Kickoff & Business Agility Context
We introduce online program participants and their guide, build working agreements, and discuss the business case for agility covering the increasing speed and complexity of work and the management trends which have followed.
Module 2: Agile Leadership Introduction
We introduce the Leadership Agility development model and illustrate thinking and behaviours at multiple stages. Discuss how expert, achiever, and catalyst leadership approaches can be situationally applied at work.
Module 3: Catalyst Leadership
The #1 request we hear from prospective participants is “quit telling leaders what NOT to do and help them with what TO DO”. We provide leaders clarity, beyond a servant leadership approach, in how to situationally adapt, engage others, improve their own awareness and catalyze growth in the organization.
Module 4: Catalyst Conversations
We learn and practice a simple, yet powerful, conversational tool to help leaders practice catalyst leadership in every conversation at work (and home!). This tool helps leaders balance their power style and empower employee action.
Module 5: Catalyst Feedback
Feedback is a fundamental principle of an adaptive, empirical process. We help Agile Leaders to create safe spaces for effectively giving AND receiving feedback through cognitive awareness and tools to lower the threat of feedback.
Module 6: Catalyst Habits
We help leaders self-identify their key habits and show how identifying and practicing new habits will increase their leadership capacity and effectiveness. Agility is not a one-time event, rather it is a life-long mindset of curiosity, learning and adapting.
