Virtual, ORGANIC agility Foundation Training

Virtual Training South Africa, February 2022

Details about the ORGANIC agility Foundation Training

This ORGANIC agility Foundations Training take place over 2 day (10am-6pm SAST). Agile Leadership is necessary for any organization that wants to learn and grow. ORGANIC agility provides a new leadership approach, models for cultural change, insight into complexity thinking and addresses topics that are important to every leader in any organization. The ORGANIC Leadership® framework supports Leadership growth as a capability, rather than only seeing it as personal development of Leaders. 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. The goal of this course has three parts: (1) bring awareness and understanding of the foundations of agile leadership; (2) create awareness about the changing dynamics in today's world of work and equip leaders with the practices they need to effectively lead their teams; and (3) bring awareness to the practices and principles of agility and how they apply to sustainable business and organizational agility. The class is presented in a highly interactive and collaborative format with elements of lecture, classroom discussion, exercises, games and simulations, smoothly blended throughout the class. We will approach the class at a sustainable pace and endeavour to take breaks often, to allow our brain to stay focused and our body to recharge when necessary.
