The world around us is changing at an extraordinary pace. Companies have to learn to adapt just for survival. Often, they struggle just to catch up to all the change around them, only to find that the change itself has changed. Getting in front of the accelerating turbulence, with the mindset of the past, is almost impossible. It is not just the rapid pace of change, business leaders now deal with a VUCA world where there is increasing Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity, and Ambiguity. No industry goes untouched in this changing world; a world of turbulence; a VUCA world.

In this world, our mental models are challenged, our skills stretched, our paradigms shifted. Successful ways of the past no longer produce the same results. In many cases, our mental models may actually blind us organizationally and prevent us from achieving success. As business leaders, we have to undergo behavioral adjustments to lead in these times. We have to re-vamp our thoughts about organizations, our role, and the very nature of leadership.

ASPE’s Agile Leadership course provides insight into the VUCA world to not only challenge our traditional thinking but also learn what paradigm shifts are necessary for effective leadership in this environment. The course goes into specific tools and techniques to help you develop relevant leadership capabilities.

Agile Leadership takes us through the need to develop our own personal and relationship agility. In addition, we address the organization and the key elements for thoughtful improvement of our organizational abilities.

In this highly interactive course, we combine exercises, case studies, and interactivity to understand the principles and concepts behind agility.

ICP-ALP CertificationThe ICP-ALP is one of the Continuing Learning Certifications (CLCs) on the Agile Executive Leadership track.
