In the majority of organizations on their Agile journey, a gap grows between the self-organized teams and their Leadership. Leaders feel ineffective, lost and frustrated. They see the climate around them is changing, but they can’t follow the dynamics of the system. They have in their hands all the traditional tools which until recently had been working well, motivating people, directing them and giving teams guidance. Now those same tools are failing and getting only a fraction of their previous results. Join Zuzi as she takes you with her on a journey to become an effective Agile Leader. Form the right mix of Agile Leadership competencies, and gain confidence in your ability to drive Agile Organizations.
