Teams are often sent to Agile training and begin adjusting how they work by adopting Agile values, principles, and methods. Meanwhile, management rarely receives any Agile training or coaching support and continues to use management methods they are familiar with, which are often diametrically opposite to the Agile approach. This mismatch between teams and management often causes unnecessary conflict and needless destruction of human potential and business value.
In chemistry, a catalyst is a “substance that increases the rate of a reaction without itself being consumed”. In most cases, you need just a tiny amount of a catalyst to make a difference. In an organizational context, a catalyst can be a person who “provokes or speeds significant change or action”. At Org Whisperers, we believe that a Catalytic Leader is a person who creates a disproportionately large, positive impact on an organization’s Agile adoption. They create this powerful impact by enabling teams to grow into high-performing Agile teams that are empirical, outcome-focused, and self-managing. This workshop will help your managers flex their muscles and grow into Catalytic Leaders who unleash high-performing, self-managing Agile teams across your organization.
