Agile Leadership in 5 (not) easy steps
A look at what it really takes to be a leader in an agile organisation.
Understand what your organisation needs of you, as a manager, director or even CEO. Agile transformation is about the whole organisation adopting agile behaviours, and agile leadership is about baking those behaviours into the culture of the company.
We will cover the five key steps needed, in turn, to release agility in your organisation.
But nothing worthwhile is ever easy!

She blogs at FluidWorking.com and you can find her on Twitter at @helenlisowski. Helen claims her life is filled with questions about why we humans do what we do. Especially, why do we do things that are detrimental to ourselves? When she applies this curiosity and subsequent discoveries to her work with agile teams, she is forever astounded at the positive difference it makes. She has an obsession with afternoon tea, so if you bump into her, say hi and join her for a brew.
