Becoming an Agile Leader, Regardless of Your Role

458 views

Published on

Agile is about the ability to inspect and adapt to change. Can we become adaptable agile leaders? You don’t need to change your title. You might not need to change where you sit in the organization. You will need to change your mindset to have the courage to lead.

Johanna will discuss how you can develop an agile mindset, seeing and living the “art of the possible.” We’ll discuss how your mindset influences your change artistry tools, and maybe even what you call yourself. We’ll see how to learn from small successes and continue to make progress, as you change yourself and your organization. You can start your change by changing your mindset to be one of change artistry and leadership.
