Limited Capacity filling up

Would you like to dramatically improve your leadership skills? Do you love helping people find fulfillment in challenging work? Do you enjoy motivating and inspiring others? If you answered yes to any of these questions, this workshop is for you!
The concept of a leader in a modern agile environment is changing. This session is for anyone who is interested in developing and exhibiting new leadership skills within an agile ecosystem. It's practical and fun since it is gamified: through a series of interactive experiences, we will experience the qualities of "multipliers" - the leaders who create collaborative, self-organizing, and empowered organizations.
The workshop is based on the concept introduced by Liz Wiseman, vice president of Oracle University, in her book "Multipliers: How the Best Leaders Make Everyone Smarter". In her book, Liz argues that leaders are either Multipliers or Diminishers:
Diminishers drain intelligence, energy, and capability from the people around them and always needs to be the smartest person in the room. These are the idea killers, the energy sappers, the diminishers of talent and commitment.
Multipliers use their intelligence to amplify the smarts and capabilities of the people around them. These are the leaders who inspire employees to stretch themselves to deliver results that surpass expectations. And the world needs more of them, especially now when leaders are expected to do more with less.
In a series of interactive games, participants will exhibit the "multiplier" leadership skills and define strategies of applying these skills to their daily leadership strategies. Each participant will leave the workshop equipped with a list of interactive games they will be able to use to promote leadership thinking in their companies.

Learning Outcomes:
  • Based on my prior experience, this workshop will be thought-provoking and transformative to its participants in the following way:
  • they will learn what leadership means in a modern agile organization
  • each of them will be able to assess their own leadership qualities as a multiplier or diminisher
  • they will define what it means to be a multiplier in the organization they are in
  • they will provide and receive feedback as leaders
  • in the end, everyone will receive a list of interactive games they will be able to use to promote leadership thinking in their companies
