“Becoming a leader is synonymous with becoming yourself. It is precisely that simple, and it is also that difficult”

– Warren Bennis

Don't Let Others Dictate Your Leadership Style - Become an Authentic Leader

Are you a manager in an agile environment? If so, you understand the intricate balance between being accountable for your team’s outcomes and maintaining control—or at least the illusion of control. Recent surveys highlight the crucial role managers play, attributing up to 96% of challenges in agile transformations to managerial actions. Your leadership, therefore, is pivotal for success.

The Limitations of Traditional Agile Coaching

Traditional approaches to agile coaching often miss the mark. They either create a distance between managers and their teams or advocate for a one-size-fits-all, idealised leadership model. Thankfully, that narrative is changing.

Introducing Authentic Leadership by Better Change

We’ve refined our expertise in leadership development to bring you our Authentic Leadership program. Here’s what sets us apart:

  • Practical and Pragmatic: No idealised or dogmatic leadership models.
  • Confidential Learning Space: A secure environment to discuss and reflect on your challenges.
  • Strength-Based Development: We build on what you’re already good at.
  • Cutting-Edge Theories: Stay updated with the latest trends in management science.

The Cohort Experience: Structured Flexibility

Our Authentic Leadership program runs for half a year and is designed to easily fit into your daily managerial role. The program runs virtually, allowing you to join a cohort of six to eight peers. Each month, you’ll meet for a few hours in sessions facilitated by experienced leadership coaches. And yes, there’s a bit of homework between sessions – we believe in continuous learning.

The Power of Leadership Cohorts

Leaders are grouped into small, professionally-facilitated cohorts to ensure:

  • Expert Guidance: Each cohort is led by professional coaches.
  • Safe and Focused Learning Environment: Space to practise, reflect, and grow.
  • Customised Learning: Refine your leadership style within an agile context.
  • Peer-to-Peer Learning: Inspiring discussions and shared experiences.

Certification and Next Steps

Besides the educational experience, the program also prepares you for Scrum Alliance’s CAL-2 certification in:

  • Leadership in an Agile Context
  • The Agile Organization
  • Agile Approaches to Change

Note: CAL-1 certification isn’t required to join the program but is a prerequisite for CAL-2 certification.
