SLP Level 2: Leadership Agility

LEADERSHIP AGILITY SERIES

Examine core leadership agility theories and their application through tested tools, and determine how to leverage your work to challenge yourself and further your development as a leader.

This series of half-day workshops designed for UW managers, directors, and other executives is based on the work of Bill Joiner and Stephen Josephs, co-authors of Leadership Agility: Five Levels of Mastery for Anticipating and Initiating Change. Participants will use their organizational initiatives and work challenges to further their leadership development and advance the agility of themselves, their organizations, and others.

Creative Solutions SPRING
Creative agility demands that you break free from your habitual way of thinking and bring an innovative approach to the novel and complex issues that arise in times of change. Such situations are not pre-defined or predictable, require you to collaborate across boundaries, and involve underlying issues, such as interpersonal concerns and politics. As this competency develops, you enhance your ability to question underlying assumptions, see important relationships between apparent opposites, and seriously consider a range of unique solutions to fit the situation.

Self Development SUMMER
Self-leadership agility enables you to utilize your daily work and organizational initiatives to develop into the kind of leader you want to be. As your self-leadership agility develops, you're able to more fully align your behaviors with your values and aspirations in a way that increases your personal and professional development, your level of satisfaction in your work and life, and your ability to lead others in their own self-development.

Context Setting AUTUMN
Context-setting agility improves your ability to scan your environment, frame the initiatives you need to take, and clarify the outcomes you need to achieve. As you develop your level of context-setting agility, you improve your ability to consider the organizational context that surrounds the issue you're addressing and the impact of your initiatives within the larger environment.

Stakeholders WINTER
Leaders use stakeholder agility to identify the key stakeholders of initiatives, understand what they have at stake, and assess the extent to which their views and goals are aligned with your own. As you develop your stakeholder agility, you're increasingly able to enter into others' frames of reference while still honoring your own perspective and to communicate in ways that align conflicting interests.

Although interrelated, all workshops in this series can stand alone. Participation in the entire series is recommended for a thorough understanding of all four leadership agility competencies and their application, but leaders may choose individual workshops that serve their needs.

Each workshop will include a brief overview of leadership agility, assessment of individual level for the competency being addressed, and practical tools for application.
