Team members in today’s growth organizations need more than technical or operational management from their leader.  Today’s top performers want an agile team culture where they can thrive during times of high stress and rapid change, and a leader they can trust and respect even when times are hard. The best teams use conflict for innovation and creative solutions and can leverage diverse points of view and act together as a collaborative team.

Your instructor, Michael Papanek, has advised leaders at top global companies like Apple, Google, VMWare, Cisco, Kaiser, Clorox and Verizon, and has built the course on their best practices for Agile Leadership.

In this course you will master the tools used by Agile Leaders for making decisions, resolving conflict and building team relationships, so you can create a team that overcomes any change or challenge that comes your way.

This course will make you a master of the interpersonal skills you need now to inspire your team to achieve high performance, and break through any internal or external barriers to realizing your full potential – as an individual and as a group.  As an Agile leader you will discover the tools and strategies you need to address the root causes of performance issues so they are no longer pulling your team down. 

In this course you’ll learn:

  • What Agile Leadership is and how to assess your team’s agility and resilience

  • How the right kind of “heat” on your team will lead to breakthrough

  • How to build strong, flexible, and fair business relationships

  • How to change your team culture by changing team meetings

  • How to be a resilient leader in times of volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity

I’ve included lots of exercises, free access to my online team assessment, downloadable tools and links to additional resources so you can put your new skills into practice and execute your personal action plan for becoming an Agile Leader.
