In today's complex, fast-changing, and unpredictable world, radically agile organisations thrive when they combine strong local autonomy with deeply shared goals. Leadership is a key factor--individuals who welcome complexity and know how to leverage influence, culture, and organisational design to align widely distributed teams are integral to success.

Renowned agile coach Zuzana Sochová presents the skills and techniques you need to become that needed agile leader. Sochovás inspirational examples draw on her experience working with leaders in organisations of all sizes, in multiple industries, worldwide. Through practical exercises and assessments, you learn how to unleash your potential, become a better catalyst and community builder, sensibly apply transparency, improve functions from HR to finance, and guide entire organisations toward greater agility.
