What People Are Saying About Us

Mastering Leadership Agility has been teaching leaders all over the world how to remain agile to the ever changing landscape of business for over 15 Years. This groundbreaking program not just guides you to fly higher, it helps you to develop your team in game-like online environment.



Why leadership ‘agility’ is no longer a ‘nice to have’ capability?

In a recent CEO study, based on interviews with over 1,500 CEO’s worldwide, two primary themes emerged that had not appeared in previous surveys. The first theme was managing complexity and the second was developing the creative capacity in the organization to innovate; both in response to ever shifting marketplace demands, in a world of escalating turbulence.

 

Speed, combined with flexibility of response and adaptability to change is the CEO’s challenge of greatest concern (The Conference Board, 2010)

In the last 50 years, we have generated more knowledge than in the past 50,000. Since 2010, the pace of change has continued unabated, requiring constant learning and intelligent responses by organisations to shifting and evolving employee, customer, shareholder, and stakeholder expectations. Competition for knowledge and our ability to share and co-create it in real time is essential for re-generation and re-invention. As the graph below illustrates, the lifespan of business is shortening, and the same principle applies to work teams and personal careers. Without agility, we will find ourselves stuck in a position which the world no longer wants.

Consequently, leadership agility and the organizational agility it creates, is vitally important for delivering sustainable success.

Leadership by itself is generally considered ‘to be like beauty; it’s hard to define but you know it when you see it’. The importance of this quote is leadership is both exhibited by the leader/s and perceived by the follower/s. Leadership comprises a context specific, two-way, social influence ‘happening’ between people, which consequently has impact on the perception of what is viewed as most important during change within the organisation, and throughout the external relationships with customers, shareholders, suppliers and other stakeholders, including the community within which the business operates. In this sense all these parties are the customers of the leadership which they receive. Without a high quantity of quality communications and relationships, there will be insufficient knowledge exchange to ensure individual, team and organisational viability, i.e. there will be insufficient agility to respond effectively to any change.

Leaders shape followers perceptions and expectations through how they practice leadership. In this way the ‘leader’ addresses the key question, ‘why should anyone be led by me?’ Likewise, followers need to learn how to support the emergence of leadership through their own followership, and by doing so they also learn more about their own leadership. In any situation there is no leadership present if followership does not exist, regardless of job titles. In fact, leadership seen only as a product of status or position in the hierarchy often gets in the way of front line ‘agile’ responses to the emerging market and customer propositions and demands.

Skip NovakManaging Director - Pelagic Expeditions Ltd
  • The Leadership Agility practices have enabled me to take the first steps towards instilling a culture of leadership at all levels of our organisation by providing a clear and simple framework with which to identify the appropriate behaviors and desired outcomes from the application of each of the practices. Further, the program clearly outlines the consequences of a deficiency in each practice.” It’s the perfect system to enable people to develop their strengths as a leader and also to identify and improve upon their weaknesses as a leader, no matter their role or level of authority. Cathy MayGeneral Manager - Dental Partners
  • I have implemented the leadership agility framework into two multi-million dollar no-for-profit organisations. If you are part of an organisation that is looking for a solution to improve employee engagement improve decision making, and seeking to direct your organisation to be a market leader, Dr Aitkens Leadership Agility framework is the first step you should consider implementing to make lasting and positive change.” Rachael CowanFinance and Operations Consultant - Gateway Baptist Church
  • MLA is a leadership and organisational development framework based on a review of over 50 years of change leadership research, which operationalises the daily leadership practices critical for creating a knowledgeable and ultimately innovative and sustainable organisation, in a fast changing and competitive business environment. I have implemented MLA practices as part of my division staff training and development program, and it has proven to be a success, resulting in a more harmonious relationships within working teams and groups, by creating knowledge sharing, learning and engagement across the division and for self-leadership.
