Last month I attended the Wellington Certified Agile Leadership (CAL1) course delivered by Toronto-based Certified Enterprise Coach Michael Sahota and hosted by Equinox IT.
It was a two day journey into the leadership difference between 'doing Agile' and 'being Agile', and a discussion about the conditions needed to ‘be Agile’. Michael took us through his high performance playbook, with a focus on the importance of leadership, culture and change in success – and an exploration of why telling teams to "go do Agile" doesn’t result in the high performance teams we need in our organisations.
While Michael was here I took the opportunity to interview him on the topics of Agile leadership and high performance organisations. This will give you an insight into some of the key messages shared in CAL1, and I recommend you take the 12 minutes to watch the video below and start exploring the latest thinking on these topics.
Michael is returing to New Zealand in 2018 and will deliver his Certified Agile Leadership training in Auckland on 22-23 March.
