Agile Leadership

Established managers feel threatening calendar slogans in their backs: "If you don't keep up with the times, you'll leave at given time. And indeed - we live in the VUKA age. Agile and empowered teams, self-organization, flat hierarchies and meaningful leadership are aimed for, because with increasingly complex market requirements, one person alone can no longer possess all the knowledge that ultimately leads to the optimal solution for the customer. The grown qualities of the manager, who has everything under control by means of rules and "micro-management", are becoming increasingly ineffective. A radically new role contribution of leadership is necessary. ICO offers managers the opportunity to learn this "necessity" of the new agile role as a leader and to train it in a protected environment.

Leadership through principles

Agile models such as Scrum, Design Thinking, Kanban, Scrumban, etc. are currently subject in the field of leadership. But which method is useful in which situation? And how can I bring agility into my team without sacrificing efficiency? Does my team have to master all modern agile methods?

Our EmpowerSystem® includes the concept of "principle-centered design and leadership". Principles are obligatory frameworks for goal-supporting behavior. They organize the consistent translation into action with regard to a goal and a strategy.
Principles enable independent action and participation within a clear framework (defined scope). Your teams learn self-control and accept responsibility in the network.

With leadership through principles, the basic beliefs of your employees will change and shape a new agile-stable culture.
Find your way to an agile-stable leader with us.
