Are you tired of having to always have all the answers? Does worrying about whether you will get the deliveries you need sap your energy and brain space? Are you running into roadblock after roadblock with your people and projects? The problem isn’t your leadership, it’s your leadership paradigm. Over and over again, we’ve been told that leaders get people to do things and they try hard to do that. The problem is that approach doesn’t work when it comes to thinking. Instead, what you end up doing is stealing away people’s ownership which leaves you more and more overwhelmed and makes them less and less engaged. The focus of this course is to re-examine how we think about leadership and be inspired to achieve greatness. It’s about moving the perspective from performance compliance to excellence through great leadership. Leadership is about making people better, as well as a better product or service – where the excellence of the organization resides in people and practices, not in one individual leader. We present and work with Intent-Based Leadership™, how it supports the Agile organization, and how to create environments where people feel motivated and do their best thinking.
In this course, you’ll learn about Intent-Based Leadership™, a new leadership paradigm that was pioneered on a nuclear submarine. With this paradigm, team members come to the leader describing what they see, what they think, and what they intend to do. With Intent-Based Leadership™, the culture of the organization shifts from one of permission and waiting, to intent and action. Not only does effectivity increase, people also feel better, are happier and healthier. People implementing Intent-Based Leadership™ have reported jumps in performance, well-being, and employee satisfaction. This way of leading is the key to successful Agile implementations in companies of all sizes. The course is based on hard science of motivation and offers practical, specific ideas, and Intent-Based Leadership™ tools and mechanisms.
Participants will learn how to move in an Agile way from their existing culture toward one where everyone is a leader, where people take initiative and ownership, and one which frees up critical cognitive space for you.
Specifically, learn how to:
- Build ownership by speaking in a language that increases a feeling of empowerment.
- Increase team performance and motivation based on the most recent neuroscience.
- Use leadership tools to create an environment where people succeed.
- Realize the steps to take when working toward mindset shifts.
- Understand how you can contribute even more to the success of your Agile organization.
