Leadership Agility 360 Certification Program
The Leadership Agility 360 Certification Program
The unique features of the Leadership Agility 360 make it one of the world’s most innovative and relevant 360-feedback instruments for today’s era. It assesses a manager’s leadership agility level in three key action arenas: leading organizational change, leading teams, and pivotal conversations. It is a thoroughly validated instrument and is based on the research underlying the Leadership Agility book.

The certification program has three phases: (1) Preparation for the workshop, (2) a virtual workshop, and (3) application (running the 360 process with two feedback recipients, followed by a 1-hour review call).
