Agile Leadership — Leading Amazing Teams for Breakthrough Results

Leaders today face shifting challenges when helping teams succeed in our complex world. With increasing speed, change, and unknowns, leaders can’t rely on ‘knowing everything’ — there is too much happening. While many leaders realize this, acting on it to create an environment where teams can thrive and deliver is not simple. Leaders need to bring new and deeper levels of skill and engagement to meet these challenges.

High-performance is more than a catchphrase, it is a state where teams are self-organizing to solve problems and deliver value to customers. Self-organizing and self-managing are not the same. The process of helping teams reach and maintain high-performance state varies from team to team and organization to organization, however, the foundational skills leaders need do not change.

Leadership – leading to create real empowered high-performance teams. While we want teams to solve many of their own challenges, leaders play a critical part in this process by helping teams continue to improve and develop. Great leaders engage with people and teams to address issues like conflict head-on, helping teams find ways to gain from conflict and improve. They don’t have the luxury of telling teams “you are empowered” and walking away – they must do ‘just enough’ to help teams thrive. This requires leaders to have the awareness and protocols in place to know when they might be limiting the team. Agile Leadership — Leading Amazing Teams brings critical tools, techniques, skills, and ideas from professional coaching, brain-based training, neuroscience, leadership, change management, and much more to help leaders succeed.
