What kind of leader do you want to be?

Friday, February 12, 2021


We are all leaders. We create the world we live in and are shaped by the world we live in.  As we look back, and celebrate, the accomplishments of the agile movement over the past 20 years we will look through the lens of leadership.

What role have “individuals and interactions” played in developing agility? What will be required of us, as leaders of collaboration, into the future? 

I’ll share my story on the history of agile facilitation and coaching and encourage you to explore yours! Through sharing stories and exploring conversations you will craft your intention for leading into the future — What kind of leader do you want to be?
