Today's world is complex, fast-changing, and radically unpredictable. Fixed, hierarchical organizations can't survive in a world like that: only radically agile organizations with more local autonomy, more widely-distributed decision-making, and strongly shared goals can succeed. Those organizations need to be managed in radically different ways. Agile leaders find their strength not in positional power, but in their ability to leverage influence. They recognize the critical roles of culture and organizational design, and have transformed their own mindsets to handle complexity and be comfortable with leading a "flotilla of autonomous boats" rather than one huge "tanker." In The Agile Leader, world-renowned agile leadership consultant Zuzana Sochova teaches the skills and mindsets you need to be a great agile leader in a great agile organization. Sochova teaches through inspirational examples that draw on her experiences working with leaders in organizations of all sizes, in multiple industries. You'll learn how to unleash your own leadership potential, align organizational development with the goal of greater agility, strengthen your skills as a catalyst, build community, apply radical transparency where it makes sense, and infuse agility throughout business functions ranging from HR to finance.
