Why attend Nimble Leadership?:

Organizations must innovate and adapt quickly to survive and thrive in an exponentially changing world. Business agility is key. Command-and-control bureaucracies are too rigid and slow to keep pace with rapid change; today’s leaders must be nimble and capable of removing organizational and cultural barriers to change. This nimble leadership course will help you architect and lead a nimble company by freeing people to innovate while maintaining strategic alignment and accountability—without imposing bureaucracy.

Bureaucratic and hierarchical organizational structures and authoritative leadership styles are hardly the recommended approaches anymore. But until now, an alternative model has not emerged. Leaders know that nimble leadership and agility requires pushing power, decision making, and resource allocation lower in the organization—but how do they do it without losing control and falling into chaos?

Nimble Leadership is designed to help you architect and lead a nimble company by freeing people to innovate and maintaining strategic alignment and accountability, without imposing bureaucracy. Nimble is a system of leadership in which an organization’s purpose, strategy, structure, culture, and leadership practices enable leaders up and down the organization to dream up new ideas and bring them to life. The goal is to build and run a team-based, networked organization that is customer-centric and can quickly sense and seize new opportunities that will win in the marketplace.

 

Course experience:

Through a combination of theory, cases, exercises, and self-reflection, you will learn how to diagnose the risks and barriers to change in your organization and understand how your own leadership style needs to evolve to match the needs of a nimble company.
