About the session

Leadership has come a long way since it emerged around 130 years ago. Today, evolving leadership styles are the number one factor in creating high-performing, innovative, agile teams, and entire organisations.

In this interactive talk, we will track the history of management from its production line roots to where it is today. We will explore the three key mindset shifts required to become a more agile leader, how to create the environment for success, how to safely decentralise decision-making, and how to grow the capability of those around you.

This talk is for Scrum Masters, Product Owners, and anyone who works in a team, leads teams or leads organisations and would like to learn more about 21st-century, empowering agile leadership.

Participant takeaways:

  • Explore the context in which traditional management emerged
  • Learn the three key mindset shifts of agile leadership
