Advanced Agendashift: Coaching and Leading Continuous Transformation

From 2018 onwards we are proud to offer this new 2-day advanced workshop. Expanding on (and including) the core workshop, it is aimed at coaches, consultants, and managers wishing to:

  • Develop their coaching and leadership skills in the areas of enquiry, facilitation, strategy deployment, and change leadership
  • Broaden and deepen their appreciation of the Lean-Agile landscape and related bodies of knowledge and their strategic application to organisational development

Who should attend?

The advanced workshop is aimed at agents of organisational change – internal or external, specialist practitioner or leader. Whilst the majority of attendees have been coaches and consultants, a significant minority have been project managers and team/departmental leaders also.

Public or private?

The core and advanced workshops are offered both publicly (see our events calendar) and privately. Public workshops are focussed primarily on skills, whereas private workshops can address a range of organisational needs:

  1. To launch, refocus, or re-energise continuous transformation in your organisation
  2. To enhance your organisation's internal coaching and change management capability
  3. To form part of your organisation's leadership development programme, maximising cultural impact
