Our Next Meetup! – Evolvagility: Growing an Agile Leadership Culture from the Inside Out
We’re delighted to announce the return of Michael Hamman, Agile Coaching Institute (ACI) principal and co-founder of the Agile Leadership Institute, with a session on leadership and agility ahead of the launch of his new book; Evolvagility: Growing an Agile Leadership Culture from the Inside-Out. Join us 24th January for what will be a fascinating Meetup all centred around the concept of Evolvagility, including plenty of Q&A time to really foster the discussion. This will be truly eye-opening and we really hope you can join us. First time encountering the concept of Evolvagility? Have a read of this blog to find out what it means and what you will learn from coming to the Meetup.
How Evolvagility can grow your Inner Agility
In their effort to adapt to an increasingly complex and turbulent social, economic, technological, and business environment, organizations around the world are increasingly adopting some form of agility. And yet, as many are finding, agility is an organizational capability that goes far deeper than processes, structures, and behaviors. It is as much a way of thinking, and of being, as it is about doing. It is as much an inner capacity as it an outer one.
Evolvagility is a practical and systematic approach to growing such an inner agility. Drawing on research and insights from adult developmental psychology, relationship systems, executive coaching, and organization development, it leads us toward a deeper understanding of the very anatomy of human sensemaking, and how it impacts our capacity for effective and creative action. And, perhaps more importantly, Evolvagility provides a practical methodology with which we might increase the capacity of that inner sensemaking in order to help ourselves, and others, make sense of the complexity and ambiguity of the situations we increasingly find ourselves in as players in 21st Century organizational life.
What you will learn at the Meetup
This session introduces the unique thinking and framework which informs and underlies Evolvagility and its practices. You will walk away with:
- A way of thinking about agile leadership that emphasizes the systemic, relational, and inner developmental dimension of leadership as is increasingly called for in the ever-more volatile, uncertain and complex world we find ourselves in
- An understanding of deep sensemaking and meaning-making anatomy of mind that underlies and determines an individual’s leadership capacity, and which will help you start to get your hands on the “levers and dials” to growing yourself as an agile leader
- A deeper insight into the nature of agile leadership within the organizational setting and what this entails for the role of organizational managers and leaders
Who would benefit from attending?
Anyone who is sees themselves as an agile leader—or someone who wishes to become one—and would like to have a deeper insight into the deeper anatomy of mind that constitutes leadership agility.
We hope you can join us!
