The Agile Leadership Journey™ Development and Coaching Programs helps develop self-awareness to improve leadership thinking and decision making for leaders in highly complex and rapidly changing environments.
We focus on the whole leader, including their creative aptitude to improve decision making, executing in a growth-oriented way to increase organizational capacity, thinking more systematically (with intention and attention) in explicitly enabling a culture of agility to deliver value.


Participation in all of our practice programs enable you to stay home and at work. We do not require in-person travel or in-person classroom time. All sessions are facilitated remotely via phone and web-based conferencing. Cross-Company Cohort Programs will combine leaders from organizations across the globe to increase diversity and learning.

Global Support: International Guides support this program in English, German, Spanish, and Swedish languages. Cohorts can be formed in relation to time zones and also language preferences.

Our Next Public Program: March 2021 to September 2021

Program Details

For individual leaders to develop their self-awareness, leadership capacity and organizational impact.


Participants conduct a validated 360 Leadership Agility Assessment to provide critical self-awareness to guide their practice journey. Feedback on expert, achiever and catalyst characteristics provide key insights on the leader’s thinking, focus and behavior.

The 360 leadership profile assessment based on the Leadership Agility Development model introduced in the Awareness Workshop. It provides quantitative and qualitative data on the perceptions of the leader’s thinking and behaviors across four primary dimensions including self agility, context-setting agility, creative agility and stakeholder agility.

Feedback from the leader themself, one or two managers, stakeholder peer groups and employees provide a complete leadership feedback profile.

The Leadership Agility 360 Assessment you can also book as separate package. For yourself or for a whole team.


Participants engage with a Certified Leadership Agility 360 Coach in 1-on-1 coaching sessions diagnosing feedback and developing a leadership development plan. Specific focus on self-awareness, threat/reward triggers, balancing their power style and other catalyst habits will be integrated along with other leader-specific areas of desired growth.

Participants drive the agenda based on their goals and selected feedback focus. The guide provides insight and challenge to participants to focus, practice, experiment, reflect and share. It is through this co-creative engagement that leaders truly begin to expose and explore their potential as a leader.

You can also choose our Professional Leadership Coaching separately and individually.


Cohorts are intimate 3-5 member teams formed at the start of the program and become the fundamental building block to share in learning, practice and growth. Just as a Scrum Team is the core of an agile practice, the practice cohort provides the space and safety for experimentation, peer-coaching, practice and reflection.

All participants work, coach and reflect together through their journey in cohorts. Each cohort is professionally facilitated by one of our experienced Agile Leadership Journey Guides. Cohort teams are specifically designed to work across companies, gender, geographies and cultures to bring diversity to each leader’s practice.

Cohort teams are on a shared journey together, helping and guiding each other as challenges surface just as a hiking party support each other on a difficult mountain trek.
