The new ORGANIC Leadership® framework supports Leadership growth as a capability, rather than only seeing it as a personal development of Leaders. This is an important distinction, because growing the capability of leadership within an organization requires building it into the organizational structure and culture.

To grow leadership capabilities we need to start building the ability, in ourselves and others, to see the connections between what we do and the effect that has on our organizational culture, our environment and us as a leader. Becoming a true Strategic Leader will allow you to focus on what matters and equip you to head a resilient organization.

The ORGANIC agility Leadership Journey

Whether your goal is to go through an agile transition, support a digital transformation, increase business agility in your organization, or you want it to be part of your personal development, the ORGANIC Leadership Model is designed to build leadership capability into an organization rather seeing leadership only as an individual role.  This leads to organizational resilience. ORGANIC Leadership as part of the ORGANIC agility approach creates organizational resilience within your organization. Based/built on a solid basis of science-based theory Oa provides tools, structures, methods, and an intensive, context-specific combination of customized training, practice, and coaching.

ORGANIC Leadership Workshops

The ORGANIC agility Leadership Workshops provide perspective, guidance, and many hands on tools and methods for your leadership journey. The ORGANIC Leadership Journey can be an individual path or a joint initiative with your peer leaders.

ORGANIC agility Foundations:

Leadership & Organization

(Results in CAL Certification from Scrum Alliance more information here)

While leadership recognizes the role they play in any significant organizational change, how they influence that change is often left to chance. The ORGANIC agility Leadership Journey helps you to successfully support your Agile transformations.

This workshop meets all of the learning objectives of the Scrum Alliance Certified Agile Leadership (CAL) Program. Note: Not all educators are approved to teach a CAL.


ORGANIC agility Advanced:

Leadership & Strategy for Change

(Results in CAL II Certification from Scrum Alliance more information here)

The first 2 workshops of the 3 advanced classes provide a deep dive on the topics of the Foundation class: Leadership & Organization and the third session focusses on: Strategy for Change.

This 3 day (see also our remote offers) non-consecutive practice program provides you with the CAL II Certification.  Attending a CAL I workshop is a prerequisite.


ORGANIC agility Leadership® - What attendees say...

We’ve worked long and hard to get agile accepted in our organisation; it’s exciting that we are at the stage where our leaders are asking how they can best support agile, and it’s imperative that their trainers get it right. Geoff’s training was spot-on. His interactions with the board were respectful and challenging, and he covered lots of ground whilst adapting to the emerging conversations and context, delivering a highly personalised and engaging day with its fair share of Eureka moments. I have already booked him for our next tranche of leadership training.

Through that deep dive, plus practice and training experience, you can also reach three different accreditation levels, which enable you to teach your own ORGANIC agility classes and certify the attendees.
