In a fast-changing environment, nimble leaders go further. Strong leaders know how to plan for success, but it’s another challenge entirely to be prepared for the unexpected—and to be able to spot and harness the opportunity it presents. The Leading with Agility Track, comprised of three Courses, provides a framework for assessing the unexpected, acknowledging the limitations of planning, and leveraging the wisdom of preparing instead. The methodologies taught give leaders the tools to build an agility practice for themselves and their teams.

The highly interactive Courses teach new and established leaders the why, how, and what of turning unplanned change into unexpected opportunity. Each participant starts with an agility assessment to benchmark where they are so they can build a personalized journey of where they want to go. Learners emerge from Leading with Agility prepared to build their team members into responsive, quick thinkers who anticipate and welcome change.

Increased success in navigating change is a key driver when choosing training opportunities.
