Agility in Leadership
Online program (English)
20 Live Learning Sessions
( 2-3 hours on Mondays. Wednesdays, and Fridays)
Why should I consider taking this program?
In the future of work, managers and leaders will need to take an Agile People Leaders role. By having an in-depth understanding of human needs, behaviors, teamwork, and strategy, Agile People Leaders are equipped to drive business success and innovation.
An Agile People leader inspires and collaborates with a community of like-minded individuals who aim to improve business agility and support organizations in their transformation and learning journey. They help people develop an agile mindset and work towards achieving this common goal.
The Agile People Leader is an alternative career for traditional managers and HR professionals. During this training, you will learn how to coach people to find a place to be the best and create conditions for people to perform together.
Please read our article about the Agile People Leader here.
Organizations in an ever-changing world require different types of leadership to thrive in today’s complex, adaptive environments.
The Agility in Leadership Track is a transformational learning journey for business agility leaders and emerging leaders. To lead others, you first need to understand yourself, your biases, your behaviors, and how to interact with others. It begins with leading yourselves and expands to empowering the organization around you.
The program provides a requisite understanding of building a human-centric organization, why emotional intelligence is needed, the nature of agile leadership, and how to cultivate a learning culture. Organizations that can learn faster than their completion are most likely to take the lead and be high-performing companies.
The program is for leaders, aspiring leaders, and other professionals interested in growing themselves and creating an environment for others to grow and thrive.
The program is also relevant for coaches and consultants supporting agile journeys and organizational change.
Feedback from participants in previous courses:
“During this Business Agility Foundations course, I particularly liked how the facilitator utilized different presenters and augmented the course materials with videos and blogs for further learning and exploration. This approach kept all the modules interesting and relevant with new points of view. One of the most positive aspects of this course was the global nature of this class. Learning about people’s perspectives working in different cultures was really eye-opening and intriguing, such as exploring, giving, and receiving feedback. I highly recommend this course.”

Agile People – a global community
You are welcomed into the international Agile People community, a global network of agile professionals working together to help organizations increase agile values using principles, tools, methods, and models. The vision is to create better organizations with happier employees and higher adaptability to cope with the changing reality.
After the training, you can subscribe to the training material and the exercises you can use in your organization or with your clients. For example, maybe you work today in an HR role or have been a leader for a shorter or longer period. Or perhaps you are an agile coach who feels ready for more profound challenges and understanding regarding people and how HR and leaders need to change so that you can support them in their future roles.
Do I need any pre-competence?
You 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?
We will use virtual online tools 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 our community platform for communication between the instructor-led sessions. We will go through all practicalities during the first session.
Are the sessions 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 certification process requires finalizing the certification assignment and answering several questions after each session. When the work is completed (approved with feedback from us), you can buy your ICAgile certificate in our shop. In addition, we will make your certificate download available from ICAgile via a link. The Agile People Certificates are included in the training price after finalizing the course, and there are separate certificates for the modules Foundation, HR, Leadership, and Coach.
We are working with Zoom for interactive discussions and team exercises, Mural as the digital canvas, and our community platform for communication between the sessions. In addition, you will get access to Agile People Campus (our Learning Management System on agilepeople.com) which contains an overview and detailed information about videos, articles, documents, and case stories for all sessions, including links to all the tools used in training. You will also get access to our three books in digital format.
There will be some work after every session, so add about 3 hours more every week. We will distribute course literature and material digitally. You will accomplish the certification assignment between the sessions to be ready on the last session’s day.
