Certified Agile Leadership (CAL1)

What is this course?

Live Online Training
To overcome the challenges currently associated with attending in-person training, agil8 have adapted the delivery of this course into a live online training format with added focus on how to work using agile with remote team members.

Utilising live video, alongside online collaboration tools, we’re able to replicate the interactive nature of our face-to-face training within a virtual environment. As such, individuals can undertake this training from their home, or any other remote location.


Course Content
This Certified Agile Leadership (CAL1) Workshop is an interactive leadership-focused workshop building skills and competencies to effectively guide and grow agile leaders, coaches and their organisations to perform more effectively in this fast-pace, complex and uncertain environment. Leaders substantially influence an organisation’s agility and effectiveness.

Today’s workplace is a fast-paced “race” on a complex and uncertain global field. Traditional leadership thinking and practices are failing to meet today’s challenges. Leader’s must more effectively engage employees, foster creativity, speed delivery and mitigate risk to outpace the competition. Innovation is the only competitive barrier remaining.

What will you learn?

This workshop focuses on the leader’s own awareness and capacity to effectively guide and grow their organisation’s capacity. It is the first step – the AHA! – in the leader’s journey toward improved performance and outcomes.

In this intensive, interactive two-day executive education workshop, you will learn how to get beyond the rigidities of traditional management and acquire the breakthrough capabilities involved in making the entire organisation agile. You will learn how to implement the elements of Radical Management as an integrated whole so as to get extraordinary results for your organisation, your customers and your workforce.

Each new concept, based on the five shifts of Radical Management, is backed up by concrete practice using tools that can be applied directly in the workplace.

Agile Leadership Compass
Participants walk through a comprehensive view of Agile Leadership – first from the leader’s personal perspective in how agility impacts their thinking and behaviour, then from an organisational perspective in how they can effectively align, guide and scale their organisation’s agility.

The Agile Leadership Compass provides guidance for participants to explore the leadership dimensions during the workshop and as an aid in their practice following the workshop.

What our delegates say

“This wasn’t training, it was an experience. We were never taught at; we were engaged in a learning experience in which we both participated and contributed. I have never been so engaged for two days.”
