What is leadership Agility?

This workshop will introduce a promising framework for leaders to increase Self-awareness in them and help them connect the "Why" and "How" part. Over the years,

I have learned that the future is already here and that your organization’s survival is based on several critical factors—including its ability to be agile — one of the essential drivers to achieve this through leadership agility.

Learning objective:

-Introduce four areas that a Leader should all focus on.

-Use Ken Wilber’s integral model as an anchor point.

-Use “I\Its” quadrants

-Relate I/its Quadrant as the Future Focus of Leadership

- Increase self-awareness on what quadrant we are residing.

Discussion:

-Agile Leaders need to keep the balance to focus on all four areas

-Too much focus on the right two quadrants (and none on the left) leads to disengagement and mechanical agile implementations

-Too much emphasis on the left two-quadrant (and none on the right) leads to a lack of results and ambiguity

What's Unique?

I would extend this Wilber Model with a few practices that would help leaders to move from Impasse to Insights

This workshop is 100% activity-oriented and will enhance awareness level in Leaders.

A powerful tool help leaders to balance "I" vs "We" quadrant. Connect the "Vision" and "People" in an Enterprise.

 
 

Outline/Structure of the Workshop

The Structure is Liberated

-> Start with an Introduction Carousel

-> Introduce Wilber Model Quadrant

-> Have set of "I" vs "We" elements and help leaders to map where they stand

-> Use the quadrant as an anchor point and create a balance by connecting "Why" part and "how" part in the Organization

-> Conclude with a key takeaway about the future of leadership Agility.

Learning Outcome

Takeaways:

  • Management is often very transactional (too much focus on the right two quadrants)
  • Leadership is about transformational focus (more focus on the left two quadrants, while still focusing on the right ones as well)
  • Each quadrant needs enough focus so people, teams and the organization can grow
  • As a Leader you need to help others to focus on these areas as well
  • A powerful tool help leaders to balance "I" vs "We" quadrant

    Venkatesh,

    While I like the intent/message of the workshop you've proposed, it appears like a session on introducing Wilber Model and using it to increase self-awarenes of the leaders and possible direction to lead themselves as Agile leaders.

    The topic could be high value to aspirants of Leadership Agility as a theme, but your title seems to be not so much connected with your content. People might read it as "you are going to be talking/sharing about the future of Agile Leaders and/or signficant shift that might happen in Leadership Agility space".

    So, is it possible to either change the title or improvise your content to call out in what section, you would be relating the model demonstration to link to "future of Leadership Agility"?

      Hi JP,

      I have a set of cards as concrete directions for the leaders to use them as a pointer to enhance their leadership style. I would be using this model as a framework and then add the concrete practices on top of it to define the "Future of Leadership Agility".

      I would be able to share the set of activities that I would use to expand this Model to the future of leadership Agility.

       

      Thanks

    When we face a challenge what we often see is the 85% things which we might not have control over and end up feeling helpless. Being in a VUCA(Volatility, uncertainty, complexity and ambiguity) world we face situations like these quite frequently both in professional and personal life. Imagine if you are in one such situation yet you get good results, how great it would be? Because there are still a few things which we call the 15% solution to a problem which we fail to see as its like our shadow and best seen by others.

    15% solution is similar to moving a few rocks to change the course of a river. This activity is exactly about moving a few rocks to find great solutions to the challenges we are facing NOW, just thinking about what is the best you can do without more resources, authority or permissions, by just doing the things in your control

    In this session we would explore 15% solution along with Troika

    What keeps a business ticking? Customer value.

    • Do you know that 75% of consumers are willing to pay more if they love the product?
    • Have you realized that around 60% of features in a product are rarely or never used.

    With this, it is evident that users do not buy or use all that you build and they pay more if they love it. Hence it is important to plan, prioritize and produce as per customer value. But what makes a product lovable and how to win customers?

    In this session, I am going to discuss in detail about the new techniques i.e. "PLS DO SIR" which I have implemented with 10+ Scrum teams, how to make a product lovable, how asking the right questions helped us in uncovering issues, how to build undaunted teams and when to engage customers.

    You can deliver great "VALUE" to your customer if you can take care of the above.

    Let's get onto a journey

    From "No" /"Yes, but" to "Yes, and"!

    Improv is the act of working together to build something new from a bunch of quickly generated ideas, disposing quickly that don’t work and building on the things that do along the way. The more an improv team works together, the more they trust each other, and the better they know each other’s’ strengths and how to use them. Isn’t it Agile Teams also all about?

    Make other people look good. This will make you look better, too. Let's experience this through fun games!

However, there are other ways that an Agile Coach and their coachees can connect – nonverbal communication.

    As an agilist, you all heard about the organizational transformation, leadership agility, etc. Also, you might be a change agent working as part of this adoption.

    Many people refer or point out to the Organization reinvented book as a reference as part of the agile adoption journey.

    Here is a true story of a small NGO, from the very southern part of India, in existence for the past 15+ years and serving humanity by doing a grassroots level change. They have shown the meaning of empowerment, self-managing and self-organizing in an absolutely different way.

    I want to talk about this group (though they have never heard of the agile movement, though the founder had a background of Software development).

    Transformation has become the buzz word of the times with it spreading over various manifestations like agile, devops, business agility, organizations transformation etc. At the same time most transformation initiatives are driven in a global organizational and team environment.

    In a global environment, we look at scaling and standardization quite frequently. Organizations train everyone alike with same content, same philosophy, same tools, and standards yet we struggle in producing exceptional/uniform results that are sustainable. We see teams falling back to their old ways of working leaving a question on the transformation itself.

    Transformation is often seen as a series of changes in the way we work, the process rules, the way we are structured and several other things. However none of the changes mentioned above guarantees a transformation that is sustainable in delivering business value.

    In this talk, we explore

    • The possible areas to look at why often we fail in sustainable transformation
    • Even after a transformation exercise, why do organizations have to still deal with areas of accountability, commitment and ownership and delivery at cadence.
    • What really matters in a transformation exercise, are we focusing on the right things?
    • Essential ingredients for a sustainable transformation

    Jayaram Hegde / Lopa Misra - The Power of Visual Metaphors - Creating Breakthrough Results Through Collaborative Play

    90 Mins
    Workshop
    Beginner

    According to neuroscience - human Mind Power system consists of easily learned techniques that help you focus and direct your thoughts, and the first technique you’ll learn is visualization.

    ‘Visualization is any technique for creating images, diagrams, or animations to communicate a message. Visualization through visual imagery has been an effective way to communicate both abstract and concrete ideas since the dawn of humanity.’ Using visualization techniques in any gathering help to inspire creativity, focus and shared vision.

    During our day to day working environment - especially in Agile WoW (irrespective of the frameworks we use) we have lot of opportunities to plan, strategize, brainstorm, innovate and generate ideas. These will always be incomplete without the application of Visualization techniques. Visualization techniques can be successfully applied to identify common goals, understand customer expectations, collaborate with individuals (multiple teams), and identify areas for continuous improvement.

    Many a times, key events in our workplace are conducted in vaccum where people feel they are not engaged or disconnected or feel there is no value out of these. We can turn the table around completely by giving the dimension of Visualization using Visual Metaphors.

    Agile methods have provided a framework for improving innovation, but there has been a missing piece - Visual metaphors (influenced by Innovation Games ideas) offer ideas, tools & practices to aid the innovation process at its most critical point - product management, particularly visioning & roadmaps identification. Key to innovation is creating collaborative, interactive, visually-oriented, fun, business-driven-environment for people.

    In this interactive workshop participants would be experiencing some of the popular & widely used Visual Metaphors that can assist in their Agile journey through which they can experience the power of these tools to generate better visibility, collaboration opportunities, sense making and continuous improvement opportunities.

    Where can it be applied?
    • Business Review Meetings
    • As a tool for prioritization
    • Planning, Backlog refinement and Retrospective meetings
    It is time for some ‘hands-on’ and ‘minds-on’ to know more about innovation through visualization.

    We all know that #Facilitation is a key buzz word. A difference in understanding facilitation begins with an awareness of the difference between facilitating and leading. It has been said that leadership is something you do to a group, while facilitation is something you do with a group.

    Facilitator assist group[s] as they work together toward achieving group goals, and in most instances do not interject their own personal opinions or agenda. By expressing their opinions to the group, facilitators risk discouraging others with differing opinions from speaking.

    They remain alert to group dynamics and encourage challenging reflection while maintaining respect and safety within the group. Although facilitators may help guide a discussion, they also recognize and foster the groups' own ability to lead itself. Thus unlike authoritative leaders, good facilitators relinquish control to the group and promote open, democratic dialogue among group members.

    Do you remember the famous dialog from the movie Spiderman – “With great powers comes great responsibility”? Today’s world is driven by Software and as a Software Professional we have great powers and so have a great responsibility towards this world and the human kind. We can use our powers to make this world a better place to live or can destroy it with our bad practices.

    The talk is about Ethics and Professionalism. As an ethical professional, its our responsibility to make sure that the work done by us and the practices being followed by us are benefiting the society.

    The Wikipedia definition of Corruption is a form of dishonesty or criminal offense undertaken by a person or organization entrusted with a position of authority, to acquire illicit benefit or abuse power for one's private gain.

    Knowingly or unknowingly, software profession is being infected with corruption resulting in bad behavior, bad practices and bad products. The talk will be covering some case studies and asking every Software Professional, are we doing the right thing for the society?

    We have to do an introspection and ask ourselves –

    1. Are we abusing the power to our's or organization’s gain?
    2. Are we dishonest towards our profession?
    3. Are we getting involved into a criminal activity without being aware of it?

    Any change fails predominantly because of 2 reasons – because it tries to change the way WE work; and because it tries to change the way I work.

    WE denote an organization – with all its culture and structures. And if any change interferes with the organization’s existing belief system itself, it treats that new change as a virus – as a threat to its existence and way of living – and kills it. Much like a bad organ transplant.

    But, there is also an equally, if not more, important “I” part… “How I work”. This is purely an individual decision. And these individuals, who are the most complex system within an organization. How people will respond to change is difficult to predict. It’s all about understanding the perspective of the people affected by the change.

    We need to transform how our brain thinks in order to transform how our organization works.
