Agile leadership is not an end-state that can be reached. It is a growth mindset with increasing awareness, adaptiveness and effectiveness. As you develop agility, you increase your mental capacity and flexibility to situationally adapt in complex environments.

Your Agile Leadership Journey begins with this Awareness Workshop. And beyond this we even offer an optional comprehensive deepening for sustainable personal development. Should you be interested to even dive deeper, with the successful participation in this Agile Leadership Workshop you create the foundation for optionally participating in our 6-month ALJ Practice Program.

Leader’s Awareness & Choice ignites the turbo for more effectiveness in leadership and in your organization. Don’ wait, because every day you don’t grow as a leader is a lost opportunity for your organization.


LEADERSHIP ONLINE is not enough?

We host our ALJ Masterclass frequently in

Globalization, automation, increasing regulations, a 24×7 mobile society have already changed the world of work significantly and will probably continue to do so. For leadership, this means that you can hardly rely on previous success patterns. Agile Leadership means effective leadership in highly complex, uncertain and rapidly changing environments.

Frameworks for agile scaling are nowadays a standard approach, but very often fail to achieve the expected results. None of these frameworks adequately addresses the attitude and behavior of executives and their role in creating new structures and influencing cultures that are required for the enablement of agile practices and the sustainable success of teams.

With the Agile Leadership Journey™ we offer a deep qualification, concrete guidance, coaching and mentoring for executives, who want to achieve their own path towards more effective leadership and who want to increase the effectiveness of their organizations.


Leadership Agility® already helps thousands of executives worldwide to demonstrably improve their performance.
An improved management capacity, which leads to increased agility of the organization and better business performance.

Previous participants in the Agile Leadership Journey program come from a wide variety of industries and regions. Numerous companies around the world also use this program internally to make their managers fit for the future for the challenges of the 21st century. Just a few examples are Swiss Re, Sanofi, McKinsey & Company, ADCB, Vodafone or Danske Bank.

Agile Leadership Compass


The leadership trainers & mentors – also known as ALJ (Agile Leadership Journey) Guides – of the ALJ program are particularly qualified and experienced leadership coaches.

But they don’t theorize about agile leadership and leadership agility.

All of them have demonstrated leadership as well as leadership skills in challenging situations and agile environments..
