About Agile People Workshop
Why take this course?
Today the most progressive companies have changed the formal management role to a more servant leadership role, realizing that people are most productive, creative, and happy when they have personal control over their own lives and the ability to be leaders of their destiny, private or work-related. In these organizations, everybody is expected to be a leader, so there is paradoxical, a lot more leadership there.
Although the changed view on leaders and of the formal manager role is far from mainstream today, many organizations are experimenting with alternative structures, replacing budgets with forecasts and dynamic resource allocations, to create the best possible value.
In today's fast-paced world we see more and more self-organization and self-leadership within people and teams. Information and knowledge are transparent to everyone, and power is not anymore in the hands of a few.
Does that mean traditional leaders or HR managers and the like become obsolete? Or is there an alternative future role that would be a natural step when leaving the process-oriented and transactional leadership style in favor of ways of working more suitable for a complex reality?
You will leave this experience having gained both knowledge and practical skills to bring forward new ways of working and being that enable leading in agility within yourself to then enable others and in the environment creating lasting change, engagement, and a truly empowered workplace.
