Session Details

Question To My Leader. Am I allowed to Fail?

Leadership has to go through a see change to bring about agility in our organization. Is my leadership willing to forgo Command & Control style to a style of Inspire & Trust. Will he/she support me in my journey towards transformation? As a coach, am I allowed to FAIL in my agility journey?

This talk is from the problem statement from Coaches perspective. As coaches, one of the biggest challenges we face is the fact that while we protect our teams from outside influences and Command culture, we as coaches are not allowed to FAIL. The general notion is that as a Coach I have all the answers, so why do I need to experiment? My talk focusses on the following Key points – Will leadership support me in experimenting the agility transformation? – In case my experiment fails, do I as a coach have psychological safety? – What are the personality characteristics my leadership needs to change? – How to build a culture of collaboration over commanding styles?
