Leaders. Have you heard? The leadership landscape has been changing. Heck, it’s continuously changing. And one of the big disrupters has been “Agile”. It’s introduced or fostered concepts like: servant leadership, self-directed teams, empowerment, emotional intelligence, employee engagement, trust, self-selection, open spaces, and even something called a Lean Coffee. Not to mention all of the hoopla surrounding agile at-Scale and all of the associated frameworks.
Channeling his best Jeff Foxworthy, Bob Galen shares some patterns and anti-patterns that surround the leadership shift to more agile tactics and mindset that many leaders are facing and struggling to adopt. Having gone thru this massive change himself, Bob explores his personal journey towards becoming agile as a leader. Topics will include how to tackle your new role: the tactics you’ll need to change, the stance you’ll need to assume, and the role models you’ll need to leave behind. Beyond that, Bob shares the new lean, value-based delivery mindset that seems to be the right focus for delighting your internal and external customers.
You might leave this session with your mind blown a bit. But you will never think of leading the same way again.
