Our Topic
In today's business environment, agility is one of the most important capacities for today's leaders to develop. But what exactly is leadership agility? What does increased agility look like when managers lead change, lead teams, and navigate pivotal conversations? And what can leaders do to develop greater agility?
In this interactive session, leadership consultant Bill Joiner will share key findings from his in-depth research on leadership agility. He will use audio clips to illustrate different "levels" of agility and go into the four types of agility that are essential for effective leadership. He will be joined by Chicago PDN member, Elene Cafasso, who will show us how she uses tools and methods from Bill's body of work with her coaching clients.
