ICAgile Certified Professional – Leading with Agility (ICP-LEA)


Although the changed view on leaders and of the formal manager role is far from mainstream today, many organisations are experimenting with alternative structures, replacing budgets with forecasts and dynamic resource allocations, to create the best possible value. 

In today's fast-paced world we see more and more of self-organisation and self-leadership within people and teams. Information and knowledge is transparent to everyone and power is not anymore in the hands of a few. Does that mean traditional leaders or HR managers and the like become obsolete? Or is there an alternative future role that would be a natural step when leaving the process-oriented and transactional leadership style in favour of ways of working more suitable for a complex reality ?

You will leave this experience having gained both knowledge and practical skills to bring forward new ways of working and being that enable leading in agility within yourself to then enable others and in the environment creating lasting change, engagement, and a truly empowered workplace.

The program is made up of 10 topics that we will cover over 10 intensive online sessions - beginning 11 May and ending on 11 June - 1330 - 1530 India Time / 1000 - 1200 CEST.

Program Content

Agile People Fundamentals

Session F1: Introduction to Agile People and important principles/tools

The foundation of Agile People's' mindset is about the principles, values, methods, and tools that we need to start using to release competence and innovation – and what we stop doing. We discuss your challenges and certification assignment.

Session F2: Psychological safety as a foundation for a learning organisation

The importance of an approach that is permeated by security and confidence to increase profitability and innovation – to increase creativity through a culture where it is ok to fail and try again. We play "The Psychological Safety Game" to facilitate dialogue about difficult topics

Session F3: Structuring the organisational ecosystem

Emerging strategies instead of long-term planning, new ways of working with strategy, budgets, goals, performance processes, and rewards. Using value stream mapping to optimise flows in a system instead of working with resource optimisation and sub-optimisation of departments. 

Session F4: Growing an agile culture

Creating conditions for a fantastic culture where people can perform at their optimal level with a sense of being supported and secure. The gap between structures and culture/values. Structure – Culture Misfit Role Play. The importance of country culture for an Agile transformation.

Session F5: Creating Conditions for Change

Today we are challenged as people and as organisations to be much more responsive and adaptable, to have the capacity to navigate in complexity. How can we make sense of things when things keep changing, how can we make decisions and act when most of the time we don’t have all the information we need and create conditions for change? 

Leading with Agility

Session L1: The Why and What of Leading with agility

We explore the changing environment and dynamics that call for a different approach to leading. We also look into the misalignment between what managers think drives their people and what people expect from the people managing and leading them

Session L2: Leadership behaviours that enable agility

We explore the evolution of leadership theories and leadership styles and determine what is still relevant and what might need to change - for instance how the ways in which Power & influence work might change. 

Session L3: Knowing and Connecting with Yourself

Here's where we try and understand and embrace ourselves. We understand why we react to things the way we do, what are our biases and can we counter them in some way - and use all those insights to better allow us to choose our responses and change how we show up in interactions. Leading others starts with developing our own self-leadership. 

Session L4: Developing and Leading Yourself

How do we develop the 4 Selves of the Leader and explore different contexts to put these into practice; better checking-in with people, giving & receiving feedback too.

Session L5: Skilfull communication

How do we ensure that what we communicate gets the intended result and that we are clear on how to communicate the right stuff in a way that would make sense for people regardless of cognitive differences? We work on the dynamics of effective communication through the lenses of several mental models; and the power of effective storytelling to move people into action.

Online Delivery

This course is available online.  Prior to our first session, you will receive access to the Agile People Learning Management System where you will access all of the course content, workbooks, and supporting materials.

We are working with different virtual tools. We will provide you guided information to access all of the various tools prior to our first session as well as on-going throughout the experience. 

There will be some work to be done after every session, so this class will need your full attention during these intensive days. The certification assignment can be accomplished in the time between the sessions so that you will be ready on the day of the last session. But in this intense tempo, we recommend that you do the assignment after the training has stopped.
