How Managers Nurture Agile Teams to Thrive

Agile transitions fail to provide adequate guidance on how a manager fits into an Agile organization. What do you do now? What is a manager to do when teams are supposed to be empowered, self-managing, and self-organizing? Is there even a place for managers in an Agile organization?

YES! There is a lot for managers to do in an Agile organization — they might be different than what you did before. Agile is a whole new way of work for most managers, as it requires a particular style of leadership. Your role and responsibilities need to evolve to support the growth and success of the team. You must learn to coach, remove obstacles and model new styles of communication. 

In this interactive session, Selena guides you on how you can thrive as an Agile Manager as you nurture and support your teams in transformational success. You leave with insights, techniques, and approaches you can readily apply when you return to work. Ready?! Come learn how to inspire, influence, and have an expansive impact in your organization while you flourish as an Agile Manager.

 Learning Outcomes:

  • The difference between traditional management and agile management.
  • The conditions that allow teams to succeed, and how to nourish them.
  • Why and how to be a coach, obstacle remover, and a cheerleader.
  • The evolution of leadership and communication to propel Agile transformations forward.
  • How to support agile teams and senior management, while demonstrating your value.
