Managers Frontier to Leadership Agility

We often expect ourselves to lead people like mythical legends with mystical abilities to influence others. Expectations and judgements are thrown at managers without consideration that they are also people. We aren’t afforded the same learning courtesy as Agile teams expect for themselves. That’s OK, because we know; no matter how safe, it’s not nice or easy to fail people. Especially those we are accountable for.

With this level of human accountability and the need to support senior management to cross ‘the Agile team to Agile leadership chasm’, it is time for a leadership agility framework that serves us, the business and our teams simply and sustainably.
