In partnership with
ICAgile - ICP-LEA Leading with Agility
As leaders in times of ever-accelerating disruptive change, it is imperative that we commit to the deliberate and continuous improvement both of ourselves and of the organizations we serve. Once enough of us have done this, human-centered organizations that take care of all their stakeholder constituencies – including society at large and the environment – will become the norm.
The course leverages varied and complementary learning experiences and approaches, from guided discussions to interactive collaboration, individual reflection, and short lecture bursts. The primary objective is to deepen participant’s understanding of and commitment to exploring the leadership imperative.
Our approach is unconstrained by dogma and adherence to limited sets of methodologies or practices. We have freely combined elements and approaches from neuroscience, positive psychology, and the social sciences with traditional, Agile and lean project and product paradigms. By doing so, we are providing a far-reaching and impactful learning experience that will leave participants with a strong desire to experiment with the different tools, techniques, mindsets, and ways of reframing problems which they will have encountered – many of which potentially for the first time – over the course’s duration.

The course has been designed to provide an optimal learner’s experience. It relies on various interactions to ensure that instructor-led class time is used for value-added activities.
As explorers of leadership, learners will go on an exciting adventure across three dimensions of leadership:
- Servant leadership
- Value creation
This course is for aspiring as well as experienced leaders and managers, working in any sphere of human activity, who have come to feel that traditional ways of leading and managing are no longer enough to allow our organizations and communities to thrive.
People in several professions – such as managers, executives, HR professionals, transformation and change management leaders, finance and project management professionals – working with small and large organizations in various industries and in many countries, have enjoyed Exploring the Leadership Imperative. The quality and diversity of participants is an integral part of the learning experience.
There are no formal pre-requisites. However, to benefit from the learning experience, we strongly recommend that participants have significant work experience and are in a position where they can exert leadership (influencing others; not necessarily formal/positional power).
There are no pre-requisites in agile knowledge or experience.
The course includes a final assessment consisting of questions that participants will answer between class sessions. The assignment focuses on helping participants reflect on how they can improve their leadership skills and apply the learnings in real situations. Instructors will assess the participants’ eligibility for the ICP-LEA certification based on their participation in class discussions and their assignment. The ICAgile certification fee is included in the course fee.
