Leadership Agility 360 Certification Program
THE LEADERSHIP AGILITY® 360
The unique features of the Leadership Agility 360 make it perhaps the world’s most relevant and actionable 360-feedback processes for today’s era. This scientifically validated instrument is based on the 5 years of research underlying the award-winning Leadership Agility book. The instrument assesses a manager’s leadership agility level in three key action arenas: leading organizational change, leading teams, and pivotal conversations. The process used to orient clients and debrief the feedback fosters psychological safety and results in a powerful coaching agenda that helps leaders adopt new leadership practices supported by needed mindset shifts.
Who is the Leadership Agility 360 for?
The Leadership Agility 360 is for you, if you are:
- An experienced leadership coach
- An Agilist who works with leaders
- A leadership development professional, who wants to incorporate into their programming a proven approach to developing Leadership Agility
The instrument itself was designed with executives and high-potentials very much in mind. But has been extensively and successfully used with managers all organizational levels, who lead teams (even informal ones) and have responsibility for leading organizational change or improvement projects of any size.
How do you know this 360 is for you or your organization?

THE LEADERSHIP AGILITY 360 CERTIFICATION PROGRAM
The Leadership Agility 360 Certification Program
This certification program has three phases:
- Pre-work for the workshop
- The virtual Leadership Agility 360 Workshop
- Application: Running the 360 process for two people, followed by a 1-hour review call
Two certifications: Which is right for you?
The companion program for the Leadership Agility 360 Certification Program is our virtual Leadership Agility 360® Coaching Program. Once you've used this 360 to create a coaching agenda with a client, it's very helpful to know the specific coaching methods needed to help Experts become Achievers and to help Achievers become Catalysts. You'ill come away from this coaching program for or experienced leadership coaches and Agilists with enough practice and feedback to integrate these methodologies into your coaching repertoire at a very practical level.
Because they form a larger whole, we strongly recommend taking both programs. However, this is not a requirement, and, if you take them at separate times, you can take them in either order. That said, you will get the greatest benefit if you sign up for both programs. As a bit of encouragement to do so, you will receive a $200 discount when you register simultaneously for both programs. You can take a look at our Coaching Program here.
