Certified Agile Leadership 1 Workshop

Register for the December 17 Workshop >

Humans are not resources and the old ways of managing–command and control–are no longer effective. Data has shown old-school leadership merely result in bad morale, wasted effort, and high turnover. The days of being the hero and doing things alone won’t work anymore.

Modern teams need…

  • To have a clear mission they believe in
  • To be treated as whole people with lives outside of work
  • To feel like their work matters
  • To be challenged but supported
  • To have the opportunity to grow their skills, build new ones, and advance in their career

Alongside teams moving forward to a more agile and modern way of working, managers, directors, and the C-suite should improve their leadership skills in order to encourage speed, flexibility, and innovation. They need skills that can build a culture that supports organizational agility.

The Certified Agile Leader® I (CAL-1) executive training teaches leaders new skills to help them manage their day-to-day interactions with colleagues and team members and the tools to improve team collaboration.
