Leading in the Digital Age
The definitive program for Agile leaders
Faced with constant change and disruption, the world needs leaders who are supportive, collaborative, and highly responsive. The Leading in the Digital Age program equips today’s leaders with the knowledge and skills they need to support their Agile teams and manage change effectively.
Why Leadership Change is Critical to Success
McKinsey research found that transformations where “leaders model the change themselves” are four times more likely to succeed. Leadership buy-in can help increase the chances of a successful transformation from 30 to 75 percent.
Without the active involvement of leaders, a large-scale Agile transformation is far less likely to succeed. Leaders must invest in their own change journey and proactively work to shift old mindsets and habits before they can help others do the same.
This program answers the questions:
What does it mean to be a Lean-Agile leader?
How can I support my teams effectively?
How does my leadership style need to change?
Attendees will learn how to:
Drive Agile transformation at a large company
Promote a continuous learning environment
Build a trust-based environment through authentic leadership
Inspire a generative culture by leading with emotional competence
Overcome barriers to successful transformation
