Becoming an Agile Leader
Wednesday July 24, 2019 11:00 AM EDT (15:00 UTC)
Agile leaders help their teams and organizations grow to meet new challenges and find new ways of working. They amplify the nascent capabilities in their teams by helping them to achieve their full potential. The experience can be deeply rewarding, but it can also be at times lonely and uncertain; Most aspiring agile leaders have few role models from whom they can learn, and they can experience indifferent support from their own senior managers. They also can feel anxiety as they let go of their traditional responsibilities and authority in order to help others grow their capability.
In this Scrum Pulse webinar, Kurt Bittner from Scrum.org and Ralph van Roosmalen from Management 3.0 will discuss the challenges leaders face as they try to grow their agility, how they can help their organizations to improve, and tools and practices that can help them to help themselves and their teams. Questions discussed will include:
-Why would a manager want to give up their traditional authority to help a team grow? What’s in it for them?
-What tools and practices can help?
-How can a manager working in a traditional organization work to empower their teams
-How can managers and teams decide when the teams are ready for more responsibility? And what things can the manager do to help them take it on?
