Our companies, our communities, and our planet are facing unprecedented challenges – challenges that will not be solved by a small group of people from a single organization, department, perspective, or area of expertise. Today’s leaders need a new mindset and skillset designed to harness the power of collaboration across boundaries. Often these boundaries are what is holding us back: organizational boundaries, political boundaries, disciplinary boundaries, and ideological boundaries.
At Hutcheson Associates, our Agile Leadership training provides a set of powerful, interactive learning experiences that can be customized for any group. The content is based on our book, Strategic Doing: Ten Skills for Agile Leadership (Wiley, 2019). The book debuted as a #1 New Release on Amazon in six different categories: Business Management, Strategic Business Management, Strategic Business Planning, Systems & Planning, Strategy & Competition, and Project Management. The Agile Leadership content can be delivered in workshops that range from two hours to two full days. Topics include the following:
- Creating and maintaining a safe space for deep, focused conversations
- Framing strategic conversations with the right question.
- Identifying strategic assets, even “hidden” ones.
- Linking, leveraging, and aligning assets to identify new strategic opportunities.
- Identifying and prioritizing the “Big Easy,” the strategic opportunities that will have a big impact but be relatively easy to execute.
- Converting ideas into strategic outcomes with measurable characteristics
- Putting into practice the concept of “starting slow to go fast.”
- Drafting series of short-term strategic action plans and gaining ongoing strategic commitments from others.
- Setting and leading “30/30 Meetings” to review, learn, and adjust.
- Effectively nudging, connecting, and promoting to reinforce new habits of collaboration and strategic agility.
