Certified Agile Leadership 2 (CAL2)


Michael K Sahota’s CAL 2 is a continuation and extension of CAL-E & CAL-O. It is a deep dive into the concepts of the CAL-E & CAL-O (formerly CAL1) that includes practical role-playing experiences and advanced personal growth skills. It also covers additional material that builds from your prior CAL training around organizational evolution and high performance. It consists of a 3 day online training/workshop followed by a 4-month integration program.

This is an intense 3 days of deep exploration into leadership, organisational growth and the connection of culture to high-performance organisations.

  1. You are hitting up against your “leadership edges” and want to grow through them to show up more as the leader you want to be.
  2. You have been able to apply parts of the Sahota Playbook for High Performance but want to learn how to use it better to influence others and unlock success.
  3. You want to learn more practical details – the step-by-step “how-to” of operating the material in the Sahota CAL1.

Each CAL is as unique as the instructor. Michael Sahota provides a unique CAL1 experience where people learn his Playbook for high-performance organisations ™. As a result, all CAL2 participants must have completed Michael Sahota’s CAL1. If you have already taken a CAL1 with another instructor, we would be happy to offer you a heavily discounted seat to reflect your commitment to learning and growth.

Certification of CAL 2 through the Scrum Alliance will depend on full participation and positive peer review. Please allow for a 4-month process for the complete CAL 2.

You are welcome to attend the training to get the knowledge without going through the peer certification process. The course fee is the same.
