Agile People Leadership (ICP-LEA) - 5 online sessions
“I had the pleasure of participating in the Agile HR and Leadership program run by Project X Partners and I must admit it was a wonderful learning experience. Most of all, I appreciated the practical and interactive approach of the training meetings, conducted brilliantly by Julia, Sarah and Simone. Now I can say not only to have a better understanding of the agile methodology but also many practical tools that I can use in my work” HRD Save the Children
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.
This training leads to an ICAgile Certification in Leading in Agility (ICP-LEA) - read more under FAQ below
Although the changed view on leaders and of the formal manager role is far from mainstream today, many organizations are experimenting with alternative structures, replacing budgets with forecasts and dynamic resource allocation, to create the best possible value. The role of managers is changing rapidly and also, the role of HR is under tremendous change, from focusing mainly on policies and processes to understanding that the future for HR lies in creating conditions for people to perform and be happy. By removing impediments, we can instead maximize engagement and employee satisfaction that will fuel speed and adaptability in a common, strategicction.
The question is, where do managers and HR go from here? What will become of them, when everybody seems to be able to lead themselves? Will they slowly become obsolete when information and knowledge are transparent for everybody and power is not anymore in the hands of a few "talents" who were promoted because they were seen as "HIPOs" in a world where people were judged in a yearly performance review? Or is there an alternative future role that would be the natural step when leaving the process-oriented and transactional leadership style in favor of ways of working more suitable for a complex reality?
Regardless if you are a people manager, an agile coach, a line manager or an HR professional, you need to understand how people strategy and people operations need to change when working in a company embracing the agile value structure.
