Event description

Description

Evolvagility is a three-day transformational workshop designed for anyone involved in leading an Agile transformation effort (from the scale of team to program to organization) who wants to be more effective at catalyzing self-organizing transformation.

Designed and co-led by Michael Hamman and Clive Prout, this workshop integrates experience in leading Agile Transformations, Executive Coaching, Leadership Development and Adult Development models into a journey of personal leadership transformation.

It is built on the premise that to significantly increase your effectiveness as a leader, you must transform the way you operate in three core areas: sensing, sense-making, and responding. This transformation involves becoming more sensitive (aware of a greater range of information, from within and around you); making sense of this information differently (from a more complex “Action-Logic”); and consciously choosing responses that are more aligned with your intention (as opposed to reacting out of habit).

Rather than learning about agile leadership (through Powerpoint slides, tools and abstract models) participants in this workshop engage in an experiential learning journey that gives them insight into their own leadership operating system, how it operates and how to improve its’ agility. Through a sequence of catalytic activities participants identify and choose specific changes in the way they operate that will upgrade their effectiveness at catalyzing agile transformation.

Target Audience

  1. All involved in leading Agile transformations or implementations (agile coaches, enterprise coaches, Scrum Masters, managers, and executive leaders).

  2. Any leader who sees the potential of greater organizational agility and wants to play a leading role in bringing that potential to life.

Learning Outcomes

Evolvagility will significantly increase your effectiveness in catalyzing transformation as you make the shift from a “Predict and Plan” to a “Sense and Respond” approach to leadership. Specific outcomes that contribute to the larger shift are:

  • A greater sensitivity to input from your emotional system (EQ), your field awareness and your intuition, and ways of making use of this increased sensitivity to deepen relationships and systems awareness

  • Increased skills in generating deep and genuine partnerships -- key relational qualities for an agile leader

  • Increased ability to use relational skills (listening, inquiry, empathy) to support transformations in others

  • A new way of relating to organizational obstacles that gives you greater effectiveness at working with systemic organizational issues

  • Understanding the “Action-Logic” at the core of your own sense-making system and how that enables and inhibits your leadership effectiveness

  • A plan of specific practices to speed the evolution of your “Action-Logic”

  • A clear and simple conceptual framework that supports you in holding together all that you have learned.

Pre-class Work (We will provide you information and access to these prior to the class)
