Losing good people during your transformation? Getting more resistance than you expected? You may be producing unwanted reactions in the way you are leading your people through change.
If you want your Agile transformation firing on all cylinders without the harmful side-effects, managers at all levels should focus on becoming Catalysts.

  • Inviting people to co-create an aspirational goal – Telling stories to aid people through the transition – Using some simple guides that can help create safety during change
Along the way, we’ll touch upon organizational culture and how this affects your approach.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Understand leadership actions (catalysts) that can be taken to improve the environment, support others, and increase trust
  • Understand the concepts for leading change
