Global Pioneer in Leadership Agility

Enabling leaders, teams and organizations to navigate turbulence

Why Leadership Agility?

It's become increasingly obvious that we live a turbulent global economy that constantly bombards us with change and complexity. In this new era, companies need to be “agile” — able to anticipate and respond rapidly to changing conditions. To succeed, they need to develop a level of agility that matches the pace of change in their business environment. Yet, for the vast majority of companies, full-fledged strategic and operational agility remains more an aspiration than a reality.

A major reason for this continuing “agility gap” is the need to develop leaders with the level of agility demanded by today’s environment. Yet research has shown that only about 10% of leaders have developed this level of agility. It’s no wonder, then, that senior executives around the world say leadership agility is the number one capability needed by today’s leaders.  

What, exactly, is leadership agility? In a nutshell, it’s the ability to lead effectively under conditions of rapid change and mounting complexity. It includes but goes considerably beyond what's commonly known as “agile leadership.” As described in our deeply researched book, Leadership Agility, it makes leaders more strategic, more collaborative, more innovative, and more proactive in learning from experience.

Using our proprietary assessment, coaching, and training methodologies, we help leaders grow into new levels of agility that they apply in leading organizational change, leading teams, and pivotal conversations, thereby creating more agile teams and organizations. We also train and certify leadership and Agile coaches to use these methodologies with their clients.

We invite you to explore our offerings, and we welcome your inquiries.
