AGILE LEADERSHIP WORKSHOP

Information

A ONE-DAY WORKSHOP FOR LEADERS, MANAGERS AND TEAMS 13 November 2018
Radisson Blu Gautrain Hotel, Sandon | Johannesburg

Agile People is the concept of an agile mindset, agile values, principles and tools to improve work in a world where everything changes exponentially. 

New course offer – based on the book Agile People – A Radical Approach for Leaders, Managers and Teams (That Leads to Motivated Employees)

DO YOU RECOGNIZE YOURSELF IN ANY OF THESE STATEMENTS?

“We need to be competitive, constantly improving our prerequisites for creating new and better products/services and create more value for our customers”

“We recognize satisfied people as an important factor for increased employee engagement & performance and need new practical tools and ideas for our continuous improvement work within this area.”

“We are working according to agile principles in some parts of our business, but not in others, and are experiencing that this has created a conflict in our organisational structure.”

“We need to create a higher visibility of our vision and clarify how we expect our business to realize our strategy”

“We need hands-on tools helping us to work together between different departments, without creating sub optimization and competition” (mostly a need in large organisations)

“Our leadership philosophy is not modern and we need to find new and better ways than carrots and sticks for leaders to use in their aim to create motivated employees that perform and are happy”

“We need to be inspired to improve by start using new tools and principles that can help us change and continuously improve instantly”


IF YES, THIS WORKSHOP IS FOR YOU!

When working in a company embracing the agile value structure you need to understand how people strategy, people operations & management need to change − regardless if you are a Manager, Leader or an HR professional. These two perspectives are just two sides of the same coin.

  • HOW TO SET GOALS AND MANAGE PERFORMANCE IN A NEW WAY
    You will learn how to appraise current performance management practices and identify ways of bringing Agile thinking to enhance performance, accountability and growth through new goal setting tools like OKRs.
  • HOW TO HANDLE SALARIES AND BENEFITS IN AN AGILE ORGANIZATION 
    You will learn how to describe and contrast traditional incentive structures with Agile-friendly structures and discuss the pros and cons of each approach, explaining how you could apply them in your environment.

    You will learn how to build new skills that will enable cross-functional teams based on T-shaped people
  • EMPLOYEE ENGAGEMENT AND MOTIVATION IN AN AGILE MANNER
    We will recommend motivational tools to be applied in different contexts, and describe how the traditional employee engagement survey needs to change when we work with an agile value structure.
  • TALENT ACQUISITION AND THE CANDIDATE EXPERIENCE
    We will show how you can create a design and sourcing-strategy that can be used to find and acquire the “right” people to support the strategic growth of the organization, by taking values, culture, diversity and collaboration into the hiring decision.
  • ENABLE AND SUPPORT AGILE LEARNING
    We will suggest ways to enable and support a learning-mindset in a team, supporting the shift from the focus on deficiencies to a focus on development of new skills, capabilities and continuous improvement

    You will get to reflect on how the need for business agility affects your function and organization and how it impacts team members’ roles and behaviours.
  • PRACTICAL TOOLS, TEMPLATES AND EXERCISES
    You will learn how you can work with agile tools and methods, for example with Kanban, Sprints, Scrum and Retrospectives to increase people- happiness and performance.
