Certified Agile Leadership (CAL I) Training with Michael Sahota
Michael Sahota’s Certified Agile Leadership (CAL I) training is a two-day learning experience focused on an integrated understanding of culture, leadership, and organizational change. CAL I is about delivering high performance but from different perspectives. We provide an integrated view that enables rapid organizational growth through a proven playbook.
Who Should Attend
This course is great for executives, managers, coaches, leaders, and any member of the team that has to interact with management.
Prerequisites: You are expected to have basic knowledge of Agile. This may have come to you through industry experience, reading, meet-ups, or formal training. This course is designed for anyone seeking to foster a more “Agile” high-performance organization. It is accessible and essential for leaders in innovation, lean, human resources, etc. – not just Agile.
Course Pre-learning: Participants are expected to complete 2 hours of videos and readings in advance of the training. This allows for more time to focus on discussion and exploration. The reading guide will be shared with participants after registration.
