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.

You book with us and join a German-speaking cohort, with working hours coordinated with the European time zones. For arranging the schedule, we take into account the possibilities of all participants.

At the same time our cohorts are part of the Global Journey, traveling together with many other cohorts around the world in this program. For this purpose, the kick-off takes place together with all cohorts. A global journey session for all cohorts also takes place once a month, which, in addition to a fresh content-wise impulse, offers the opportunity for a structured exchange of experiences and for networking.

A common learning platform integrates all cohorts of a program with each other and offers a variety of options for ad hoc exchange.


Part 1: Growth Mindset

You explore your orientation as a leader from an expert, achiever and catalyst perspective to improve your awareness, thinking and behaviors. Duration of this part of the program: 3 months.

Part 2: Catalyst Behavior

Building on part, you can further deepen your leadership skills in this second and optional part of the program. You will continue to work on your presence and power balance to strengthen stakeholder relationships and improve team engagement.

Program Content

Our leadership development program is divided into 2 parts (each can be booked and attended individually or together with a special discount). Each part runs for 3 months (12 weeks) and offers in-depth learning and practical application. The curriculum is divided into interactive 90-minute online sessions, taking place weekly with your own cohort.

Each week offers advanced content, practice, sharing and reflection to help participants explore and develop their leadership capacity. The specific weekly cohort dates are set together with the respective ALJ Guide of a cohort and its participants.

In addition, monthly global sessions are held with all other cohorts, which support the learning process through experts exchange, discussion panels and stories from participants. These sessions offer executives with different roles, from different industries and continents the opportunity to exchange ideas with each other and with the worldwide ALJ Guides for the purpose of mutual learning.
