The following workshops are available to build up a programme.
Although change is challenging, we have the opportunity to succeed because we can learn from others. In this first session about purpose, we will look at how Satya Nadella, CEO of Microsoft, brought the organisation back out of the wilderness by shifting mindsets and re-discovering itself.
If you have a purpose you can collaborate. We build on the first session to show the confidence that purpose builds can only be harnessed with a supporting culture. We look at how individuals and teams create a culture that supports collaboration and how this can be curated for sustainability, rather than simply dictated, which can be detrimental.
“Adapt or die” may seem like a harsh directive for corporate managers, but there is a certain necessity to constantly move forward and adapt to new market opportunities. What’s more, even decades of success are no guarantee that the future will work out – Note Woolworths, Thorntons, Pan-Am, Blockbuster, and Myspace.
To adapt, you must lead empathetically. In this session about Connective Leadership we explore what it means to have the courage to experiment – which leads to innovation. We expose why so many companies are often just a poor facsimile of the market leaders and how developing authenticity is needed to avoid falling into the same trap.
To empower you must have a purpose – bringing us full circle to the original session this is where it all comes together. Are you a manager or a leader? How do you develop the moral authority to gracefully enable others, developing the skills of others for the greater good? We ask the question “are we enlightened mini-despots who let ego get in the way, or are we selfless, empowering leaders who strive to find the better way”. Come prepared to challenge yourselves with the big questions!
There are no pre-requisites for the Agile Leadership Academy.
In preparation for your series of workshops, we listen to the challenges you are currently facing and the values your organisation identifies with. From this, we draw from a wide set of our own industry experience alongside published reference material to bring the most relevant and aligned set of topics for your people. The structure of the workshops then runs as follows
- A kick-off session is held to introduce the series and how leaders can maximise the benefit of the experience.
- Pre-course reading is distributed the week before each session.
- A live session is held with additional learning points, plus facilitated discussion on how to apply the ideas in context.
- Leaders then pair up between sessions to put these new practices into action
- Access to Agility in Mind Academy
- Pre Course reading
- Post course reading

Agility in Mind is a great training experience for me. I am very thankful for all the support provided during the course and all the useful information for my successful exam preparation and passing the exam. The constant support, open communication, site useful content, structured trainings are definitely great ingredients for …
The Live Virtual Classroom was easy to use and has a lot of fun functionality to make the course interesting and interactive for participants
The trainer delivered a 2-day-long Professional Scrum Product Owner course as a live virtual class to me and a group of colleagues and he did an absolutely amazing job. The course was full of great, eye-opening thoughts that put a lot of things in perspective and a lot of great practices that are actually useful in our day-to-da…
We had a lot of open discussions and had great, interactive group activities. The trainer not only managed to deliver in a virtual environment but actually took it to the next level, like using a graphic tablet to underline or circle in key phrases on a slide live. Seems like a small thing, but it actually gives a lot of value
Everything was good, she has organized everything and the session was consist of good materials, slides and team working tools which kept us focused on the session. Her communication is excellent and had a good presentation and good delivery. I learnt alot and enjoyed this traninng, Thank you!

Well paced and good timings. Good, clear delivery from the trainer with a good use of tools and slides available. Core content covered well and good linkage with our organisation/field of work
