Emergent Leadership in Action

Provocative Assertion: Your organization is perfectly designed to get exactly the results you're already getting.

The three cornerstones of the Agile Mindset are: Value, Leadership and Continuous Improvement. In this experiential workshop we'll focus on the Leadership aspect of Agile success.

Beyond "Inspect and Adapt" is "Sense and Respond". Both are necessary aspects of Agile leadership. The first is a trailing indicator, the second is a leading indicator.

Agile leadership works best when we include both knowing AND sensing. There are differences between *knowing what to do*, being able to do it and *being able to do it well*!

We will use two team based exercises to get immediate feedback and to sense and respond to tensions and each other in real time.

Both exercises highlight our relationship with leadership and power; as well as the subtle influence our own stance and beliefs on our ability to create the outcomes we are hoping for.

Using direct experience to practice the craft of Agile Leadership. This is "Emergent Leadership" in action.

We will anchor the learning by debriefing with our peers in teams and with the whole group. There will be time for individual reflection. We will also craft learning experiments as "homework" to deepen our practice of leadership.
