What you'll learn in this leadership training:

By some estimates, up to 80% of all strategies — however brilliant — never generate their intended results. Rather than depreciating these disappointments as ‘failures of execution,’ organizations can learn to be responsive and proactively address the gap between strategy and execution.

To achieve this agility, organizations require leaders who are perceptive (aware and accountable), comfortable with their various roles (ambidextrous and agile), and clear about their path to value (articulate and adaptive).

In this program, you will learn more about these key skills and acquire the mindsets vital to leading an agile and adaptive organization. You will improve your ability to confidently make hard-to-reverse choices, maneuver through uncertainty, and inspire others to join you in taking risks to grow, innovate and improve the value delivered to your customers and stakeholders.

Impact
This program will help you become a strategic leader who inspires and motivates others to take risky, time-sensitive actions in pursuit of valuable goals. Program participants will walk away knowing how to:
  • Foster agility at the leadership, resource, organizational, and strategic levels
  • Build confidence and competence to drive results and accountability
  • Link strategy directly to action, using both dominant and ambidextrous capabilities
  • Leverage culture and data to be adaptive; making timely adjustments in key behaviors
  • Test power dynamics and learn effective communications techniques
Program Structure
The three-day program is structured around the 6 key capabilities demonstrated by leaders of agile organizations.

Day 1: Agile and Aware
  • Agile – Maneuver through uncertainty and be a more responsive leader.
  • Aware – Become aware of changes in situations, circumstances, and relationships and be unbiased and clear-sighted about personal and organizational feedback.
Day 2: Adaptive and Articulate
  • Adaptive – Find, recognize, and use incoming information to update assumptions and adjust behaviors.
  • Articulate – Communicate effectively with multiple stakeholders in text, symbols, actions, and other means and paint a clear picture of what is happening and what needs to be done — in a language the target audience can understand.
Day 3: Accountable and Ambidextrous
  • Accountable – Set targets with clear consequences for gaps between desired and actual performance.
  • Ambidextrous – Develop strength in areas other than your dominant processes and have the ability to support multiple different processes when appropriate.
The program features:
  • Pre-program materials, including a selection of relevant readings and videos
  • Comprehensive Coaching:
        - Preprogram: a one-hour virtual coaching session with your leadership coach
        - In Session: onsite coaching with your leadership coach
        - Postprogram: a virtual follow-up four weeks after the program concludes
  • An online self-assessment and debrief report
  • A suite of cases and challenges used as a focus for program exercises and application of program concepts
  • An optional follow-up webinar featuring a review of the agility framework
Participant Profile
This program is designed for:
  • Leaders of departments and divisions
  • Senior decision makers in growth-focused firms
  • Aspiring leaders for whom uncertainty and complexity pose obstacles to advancement
  • Managers seeking to support their teams to outperform rivals and delight customers
  • Team leaders and individuals tasked with ambitious performance goals
