This course is designed to equip leaders and people who want to lead teams with the strategies and tools they need to help them succeed. This course will help you improve your knowledge and skills in Agile principles as well as gain practical leadership competence.

Agile can be described as a way of working and a way of thinking. Agile allows teams to stay productive, focus on customers and adapt to changing environments. It also helps to build resilience and sustainability to achieve better outcomes.

Your emotional intelligence, resilience, communication skills, and self-awareness will all be developed. These are all important skills for effective leadership.

This course is focused on your professional development and gives you the chance to apply what you have learned to your situation. This course will help you create an action plan that turns your learning into concrete action. It will address workplace challenges and give you skills that can be immediately applied to your job to promote change, empower others and make a positive difference.
