Leading with Agility (ICP-LEA) [Online]
Business Agility + Leadership
ICP-BAF + ICP-LEA | 10 Online Sessions
Today the most progressive companies have changed the formal management role to a more servant leadership role, realizing that people are most productive, creative and happy when they have personal control over their own lives and the ability to be leaders of their destiny, private or work-related. In these organizations, everybody is expected to be a leader, so there is paradoxical, a lot more leadership there.
In the future of work, managers and leaders will need to take an Agile People Leaders' role, with the necessary competence about basic human needs, behaviours, teamwork, and how to support an emerging strategy towards the organization’s purpose.
Leadership is changing. The traditional top-down management style is no longer successful in today’s fast-changing work environment. There is a need for a paradigm shift in leaders and their understanding of what constitutes effective leadership.
All courses can be taken individually, however for the greatest benefit we recommend this or any other combination of courses that we offer. Please get in touch for more details, @ [email protected]
During the Agility in Agile People Leader training, we cover three perspectives:
Individual perspective (YOU)
Knowing yourself and why you do what you do: The Reiss Motivation Profile (RMP) shows your basic needs and motives and contributes to a better understanding of yourself and your leadership.
Developing yourself and understanding biases, mind traps, and how to avoid judging
Communicating effectively using storytelling and visualization are powerful tools.
Coaching others find their perfect place in the organization taking their personality, interests, and passions into account
Team Perspective (WE IN OUR TEAM)
How to increase the pace from immature to mature high-performing teams, using skills for communication, leading, coaching, and conflict resolution
How to grow and develop teams to be independent and empowered to make their own decisions, for example, about their contribution to the organization's goals or their salaries
Organisational perspective (ALL OF US)
How to balance an agile culture with an agile structure, providing enough support for emerging strategies where all people are involved in setting the direction (via OKRs or other kinds of relative targets)
How to work to change behaviors – accomplishing an agile mindset and culture through removing limiting structures like annual budgets linked to fixed performance targets and individual bonuses
Create conditions for a Learning organization where it's ok to make mistakes and learn from them, which requires a platform of Psychological Safety.
- Agile Coaches who want to understand how to help HR and Leaders to attain an agile mindset and support them in change initiatives

Session B1-5 Agile People Foundations
Session B1: The Need for Business Agility
In today's Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity, and Ambiguity (VUCA) environment, business agility is more and more critical for success. The new competitive edge is new values and principles and self-organizing teams with the right mix of cognitively diverse people close to the customer experience and empowered to make decisions.
Session B2: Emergent Strategy and Value Creation
Aligning teams around a vital purpose and generating a vision is essential to providing inspiration and creating high performance. In addition, it's imperative to empathize with customers to maximize customer value and make it visible to focus on value creation.
Session B3: Framework, Tools and Techniques
Agile is about adapting to change. You adapt to the customers' changing needs and work according to priorities to deliver the most significant value for the customer first. Using a Lean StartUp approach, you can test your hypothesis with a Minimum Viable Product. Using Scrum, Kanban, Value Stream Mapping in the whole company is not different from using it for Software development. What are examples, and how can you design your processes using the agile ways of working?
Session B4: New Ways of thinking and Behaving
The ability to recognize and understand complex adaptive system dynamics accelerates the path towards Business Agility. It is not only our organization's dynamics that we should understand and manage with "Polarity Management" and "Cynefin Decision Making Model"; but also our thinking & behaving patterns by the concept of the "Ladder of Inference."
Session B5: Business Agility as the New Normal
In today's fast-moving and complex environments, we need to be more responsive and adaptable to navigate the complexity. To do that, we need to:
- Understand how to make sense of business challenges when things keep changing
- Be able to make decisions and act when we don't have all the information we feel we need
- Create the conditions to allow the right culture to grow for everyone to perform at their best. In this session, we will recap the impact on business.
Due to our VUCA world, we will explore what is needed in the business to embrace agility, deepen understanding of the structure/culture misfit, and why transformation can fail.
Session L1-5 Agile People Leadership
Session L1 - The Why & What of Leading with Agility
In this session, we will explore the changing environment & dynamics that call for a different leading and following approach. Next, we look into the misalignment between what managers think drives their people and what people – knowledge workers – expect from managing and leading them. Finally, we explore our understanding and expectations. What attitudes, expectations, and concrete behaviours do we hope to see from people who lead with agility?
Session L2 - Behaviors that Enable Agility
Session L3 - Knowing & Connecting with Yourself
Session L4 - Developing & Leading Ourselves
Session L5 - Skillful Communication
Communicating effectively, relating to others, creating and maintaining healthy interactions, having productive conversations, and ultimately influencing others requires practice and effective
communication dynamics. In this session, we work on the dynamics of effective communication through the lenses of several mental models, the dynamics of productive conversations, and the power of compelling storytelling to move and influence others. We explore three types of stories we can learn to identify and narrative patterns that help you tell compelling stories as a leader.
This highly interactive course will give you the foundation, the roadmap and tools to grow in your Agile People skills - from building your capacity and skill in self-leadership, to leading others at all levels in the organization and ultimately how to support and enable others to lead at all levels.
You will also be welcomed into the Agile People network.. a global network of agile professionals collaborating to promote and help modern organizations towards increased Business Agility.
Your course leader and facilitator is Eleonora Nelson-Per-Claeson
We are working with Zoom for presentations and team exercises, Trello for keeping track of the agenda items and exercises and Slack for communication between the sessions. There will be some work to be done after every session, so add about 5 hours more every week. Course literature and material will be sent to your location and distributed digitally.
Do I need any pre-competence?
earthYou don't need any pre-competence to attend the online course. We are tailoring the approach for the participants and your level. As a bonus, you will learn to use modern digital tools, like digital Canvases, Video meeting platforms, Kanban boards, etc.
How does the process look for this training?
The training is a copy of the physical training but we will use virtual online tools instead of face-to-face meetings, to communicate, learn and interact. You will need a good internet connection and an undisturbed workplace where you can have a quiet background. We will work in break-out sessions in Zoom and use Slack för communication between the instructor-led sessions, which will happen every week between 15-17 Central European Time.
All material will be shared via a Trello board and a Google drive. We will let you know everything about practicalities during the first session.
Are the classes scheduled on specific days at specific times?
Yes, the sessions take place according to a schedule for the year that has been predetermined. If you miss a session, you can always take it back at a later session.
After training completion, what is the process to become ICAgile Certified?
The process of certification is that you need to finalize the certification assignment, which is to describe how you would turn around HR and leadership in a company that has gone bankrupt due to not being agile enough (real case, a Swedish fashion company). When the assignment is finalized (approved with feedback from us), we will make your certificate download available from ICAgile via a link. https://www.icagile.com/
The Agile People Certificates (Agile People Fundamentals, Agile HR and Agile People Leadership) are included in the training price after finalizing the course, and there are separate certificates for the modules Foundation, HR, Leadership, and Coach.
