BILL JOINERGlobal Thought Leader on “Leadership Agility”
Talk Title: Bringing Leadership Agility to Agile
Abstract:For an Agile transformation to succeed, an organization not only needs to adopt Agile methods on a widespread scale, it is also essential to develop an agile culture. Overarching both these needs is the need for agile leadership. In this talk you’ll learn a fresh new approach to agile leadership that’s based on years of in-depth research and work with leaders.
This approach, called “leadership agility,” says that, yes, agile leaders need to adopt an agile mindset, but there’s a lot more that’s needed. The Leadership Agility approach identifies three predictable levels that leaders can move through in increasing their agility. These levels are based on well-established stages of adult development. These stages are not age-based but instead represent increasing levels of cognitive complexity and emotional intelligence.
This talk will cover:
· The core practice of leadership agility
· Four types of agility that today’s leaders need to master
· Three “levels” of mastery in developing leadership agility
· Tools and methods for developing agile leaders with brief case examples
