PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT through our L.E.A.P. PROGRAM ©
Learn how to make the right decisions to lead your organisation through these fast paced and complex times. Leading is a learnt skill that is often forgotten when one rises in an organisation. Internal leadership programs often lack the wider experience from industry. Our leadership programs leverage real world experience with practical application and support you when you are back in the office.
At AWA we have literally set the industry bar for Enterprise and Systemic Coaching. We created the first full organisational and systemic coaching conversations and helped define the ICAgile Competency Framework for Enterprise Coaching. Our experience across hundreds of clients has shown that Agile transformation is possible, that it works, and that we can teach you to do it too.
Learn how to adapt and survive, experiment and thrive. We teach you more than just the processes and tools. We teach you a new way to look at work and relationships so that you and your teams can build products and services faster than the customers can change their minds! Learn how to make working life better for everyone and succeed where others have given up.
Professional coaching is the corner stone of everything we do. It is the secret key that unlocks agility, amazing leadership, and provides far superior results than any other method of transformation. We teach you right up to ICAgile Expert level and ICF ACC accreditation. We offer the best one to one, team, executive, and systemic coaching classes in the world, all backed by a coaching community to practice on, network with, and share experiences.
