Agenda for the Certified Agile Leadership Training with Sohrab Salimi

During the two days you will gain insight into the three sub-areas of agile employee leadership. These are the so-called Certified Agile Leadership - Essentials (CAL-E), and the prerequisites you need to accompany teams (CAL-T) and entire organizations (CAL-O) on the path of agile transformation as a leader.

Day 1: The Agile Leader (9AM - 5:30PM)

On day one, we first look at Agile Leadership Essentials (CAL-E) and the historical context of leadership: How have people and leadership styles evolved over the last century? Why has the urgent need for agility arisen in today's economy?

Finally, we'll explore Bill Joiner's Leadership Agility Model, which will help you self-assess as a leader and learn about agile thinking patterns and decision-making capabilities:

Discover the mindset and behaviors of the different leadership types Expert, Achiever and Catalyst Leader and classify yourself. Learn how each type affects the effectiveness of your organization and how you can develop from one level to the next.

In the training, you'll learn the 5-Step Catalyst Conversation, which you can use to positively impact every aspect of your work - and even your personal life. In the process, you'll also learn to balance your power styles and systematically identify win-win opportunities in conflict situations.

Learning content focused on the agile context:

  • Economic and market factors that have led to agile approaches
  • Complexity and uncertainty of modern markets and work and the related need for an agile approach
  • Historical management trends and their adaptation to the particular business environments of their time
  • Increasing employee engagement and focus on the customer to improve results and satisfaction

Learning content focused on Agile Leadership für Teams (CAL-T):

  • What self-awareness of a leader and what leadership mentality is needed to lead effectively in an agile context?
  • Neuroscience leadership in alignment with agile mindsets and improving leadership effectiveness
  • Gathering and incorporating feedback that helps you adjust your leadership behaviors
  • Catalyst Conversations and Coaching, through which you as a leader can integrate alternative perspectives, engage employees, and improve results

Day 2: Running an Agile Company (9AM - 5:30PM)

The second day of the seminar is about refocusing you as a leader on your business and its mission to create customer value. This is the third strand, Certified Agile Leadership - Organizations (CAL-O).

Today you have the opportunity to reflect on the culture, structures and processes in your organization to foster value and agility within it. Understanding the impact your focus as a leader has on the health, culture, and long-term performance of your organization is one of your goals for this seminar day.

Together we will take a close look at case studies of organizations from different corporate cultures. These companies are already using agile structures and patterns and are sustainably driving change with positive results.

Finally, we will look at case studies of organizations from different corporate cultures.

Finally, we will look together at various approaches to transforming companies and work out what needs to be considered in transformations.

Finally, we will learn Salesforce's Organizational Change Model (V2MOM), which will help you develop the healthy and sustainable change your business needs.

  • Organizational challenges and solutions when applying Agile principles to more than one team in your organization

How do I attend?

We are carefully monitoring the situation regarding the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) and are following the official guidelines and reasonable precautions.

For this reason, this Certified Agile Leadership Training will be a virtual live training using video conferencing tools etc. You will receive information on this in advance of the course by e-mail, so that you can prepare yourself optimally for the course.

What does virtual training mean for you?

First and foremost a slightly different learning experience. It is true that some things that you experience in a face-to-face training do not come across so well virtually. But this online training offers you the unique opportunity to experience and practice leadership from a distance. For example, you will gain experience with tools that you can use right now in your daily work to lead your employees and your company in the best possible way, even from a distance.

Our experience has shown that the interactivity familiar from our live trainings does not decrease even in this context. It only changes a little! As we have now conducted and accompanied several virtual trainings, we have already been able to gain a lot of experience - and the participants were, as always with us, absolutely thrilled, which was reflected in their feedback of 9.8 out of 10.
