Limited Capacity filling up

Agile Leadership has its unique flavour of natural leadership, when power is not given with a title but taken by a person based on his/her inner abilities. We use Servant Leadership or Powerless Leader to emphasise this difference. If we look deeper into the biology and neuroscience of leadership we might find really unexpected things – that Agile leaders are the ones that are recognised by nature and we unconsciously can select these people from the crowd. How to become this type of person?
To be an effective Agile leader we need to understand:
  • What makes a leader: Leader-Leader Agile Model
  • The difference between a leader and dominant behaviour, why leaders look younger and more active (on hormonal level)
  • Hormones and neuroscience of a natural leader (with some cases and practice)
  • Leadership differences and similarities of Scrum Master and Product Owner
  • Simple (4 words) yet powerful mindset change to become a natural leader that people will follow

Learning Outcomes:
  • Participants will be able to understand the threat of dominant behaviour, that it is harmful for the people's health and leadership behaviour maintains hormonal youth and activity
  • Participants will be able to recognise 3 components of a natural leader and how they are dependent on each other so they can understand and regulate their leadership potential
  • Participants will be able to link requirenebts to SM and PO to the natural leader capabilities and how this influences their everyday behaviour.
  • Overall the talk is very hands-on, participants will be able to use all the tips and data immediately.
