Agility: a state of constant flux, evolution, innovation, improvement and re-invention; The capability to swiftly address challenges, to explore and change direction, to take advantage of the unforseen.
If Covid-19 has taught us anything, it is that the ‘steady state’ is a myth! Change really is the only constant, more than that, rapid change is the new norm.
All the naval gazing about ‘what leadership is or is not’ does nothing to develop any agility whatsoever! Why waste time, you’re only missing opportunities to achieve new results. Let’s face it, transformational leadership development programmes are totally inadequate! Leadership and Organisational Agility is the key to navigating the rapidly changing environment. After all, we can’t go back can we?
We’ve taken our inspiration from the Software Development Agile Movement and their Agile Manifesto. Just to be clear, we are not software developers, neither are we Agile Scrum Masters! We develop leaders that can be Agile in their behaviour and thinking and communication.
Your competitive advantage in the next decade will depend to a large extent on your agility, start, now, flexing how you approach change.
