A plea for a rethink

"Agility", "agile work practices" and "agile organizations" are topics on everyone's lips. But what do they really mean? Now more than ever, dynamic changes in our environment require a new form of leadership. Management can only resolve complex issues by working together with their teams. However, this kind of successful teamwork requires a profound change in mindset on the part of managers, which can only work with a fundamental rethink. In other words, managers need to make the transition from specialist experts to coaches. Applying previously unknown management tools facilitates an innovative form of leadership in an agile environment. Be inspired!


Everything should be and wants to be agile. You too? You will learn about the three levels of management and their key control elements. We explain the evolution of the management mindset. We work together on examining the potential for con- flicts and the solution approaches for the various relationships you maintain within your role as a manager in an agile environment. You will be given theoretical princi- ples for your work in an agile environment and benefit from both practical relevance and exercises.

The seminar will be in German language.
