Certified Aware Leader Workshop: CAL-E + CAL-O

Guiding organizations amid uncertainty, rapid change, and interconnected complexity requires good leadership skills. Good leaders are self-aware, highly tuned to their situational environment, and able to engage others in a compelling vision of the future. This workshop supports the development of these critical competencies through the awareness and practice of specific mindsets and behaviors.

Leadership Agility is the ability to recognize your leadership patterns and biases, step out of your routine ways of thinking and responding, role model agile values, and grow others and the organization.
We teach LEADERSHIP to enable agile ways of working and improve business outcomes. We don’t teach AGILE to leaders, there are plenty of other courses you can seek for that.
This course consists of 16 sessions every Monday, Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday from 5 till 6:30 pm. Wednesday sessions are led by Pete Behrens, a creator of Agile Leadership Journey™, and other ones are led by Tmas Sattar and Eliza Zubaida.
After participating in the Agile Leadership Workshop, you will get three certificates and badges (Certified Agile Leadership — Essential Awareness, Certified Agile Leadership — Organizations, and Agile Leadership Journey Aware Leader) proving that you have learned the leader and organizational learning objectives of the course.
Who should attend

  • For executors and managers;

You Will Learn About

  • How to сommunicate a clear vision, align employees to that vision, and allow for adaptation in execution toward that vision – recognizing that most discovery and learning occur during execution
  • How to employ a growth mindset enabling employees to value diversity, be open to ideas of others, seek feedback, and improve their own capabilities – rather than relying on what has worked for them in the past

  • How to increase employee satisfaction, engagement, and creativity through empowerment and other catalyst behaviors – reducing employee turnover and developing employee ownership, collaboration, and productivity
  • Diversifying risk through identifying and testing assumptions, experimenting with new approaches, collaborating with customers, delivering incremental value, and seeking feedback & feedforward earlier and more often
  • How to foster organizational adaptiveness enabling employees to more effectively break down traditional silos, collaborate to solve difficult problems, and better align toward corporate goals and customer needs
  • How to improve outcomes through balancing short-term business results with long-term organizational health to enable early and frequent value delivery combined with sustained growth
  • How to catalyze change, experiment with new ideas, and foster a growth mindset within your organization to adapt to the changing economy, technology, and the market
