Create a Resilient and Coherent Culture

Leadership is the #1 cited reason for failed transformations and there has been precious little guidance for leaders who are looking to create and nurture a culture of self-organized agility in their organizations until now. You will learn how to:

  • Build trust within your organisation

  • Develop a feedback culture

  • Encourage healthy conflict and collaboration

  • Increase engagement in your people

  • Make organisational change more likely

Something New For Agile Leaders

Katie Lomas, Managing Director of Rescue at Direct Line Group

I like the content. There isn’t much out there for someone about to embark on agile leadership for the first time so it brings something new and the video are much easier to digest than a book

Lead With Confidence

There is no playbook for organizational agility but this is as close as you can expect to get!
