Every day the business headlines announce the decline of yet another well-known brand or industry that is in rapid decline because it failed to make the agility shift soon enough. Make no mistake, whether you are solo entrepreneur, small business or leading a large organization, you are at risk of becoming irrelevant in the marketplace if you do not develop the essential competencies and capacity to become aware of, assess and take action in the midst of your changing world.
The Agility Shift: Creating Agile and Effective Leaders, Teams and Organizations shows business leaders how to make the radical mindset and strategy shift necessary to create an agile, entrepreneurial organization that can innovate and thrive in complex, ever-changing contexts.
As author Pamela Meyer explains, there is much more involved than a reconfiguration of the org chart and job descriptions. It requires relinquishing the illusion of control at the very foundation of most management training and business practice. Despite most leader’s approaches, “Agility is not simply accelerated planning.”
Not only will you learn how organizations are thriving in the midst of uncertainty and change through inspiring examples, you will discover ideas you can use right away to start making your own agility shift.
In addition, you will discover:
- The six dynamics of the agility shift to boost performance and engagement
- How to improve your capacity to respond to the unexpected and unplanned using available resources
- Specific agility practices for leaders, teams and your entire organization
- How becoming more agile will improve your bottom line and sustain your success
