Leadership in an Agile World
The way teams work is evolving and so is the role of the leader. Agile teams don't want or need someone delegating tasks and micromanaging how the work gets done. Instead, to perform at their best, agile teams need someone who can evolve and adapt. Someone who will trust, support, and enable them. They need a true agile leader!
A transformation from manager to agile leader takes work, and not every manager you encounter is excited for their role to change. So, how do you get them on board? How do you coach them through this critical change to ensure the success of their teams?
In this interactive session, we will:
  • Examine the key differences between a traditional manager and an agile leader
  • Share the story of our approach to coaching managers challenged with this transformation
  • Practice hands-on tools and techniques you can use to create and strengthen agile leaders within your organization
