Mini-Workshop: Leadership Agility at Brookings

Image26I spent the morning at the Brookings Institute, speaking and working with about 50 career leaders in the US federal government in Brooking’s hallmark program for senior government executives. The title for the overall week-long program was “Executive Leadership in a Changing Environment.”

After an introduction on what leadership agility is and why it is of crucial importance in today’s world, we focused on “context-setting agility,” on of the four kinds of agility captured in the Leadership Agility Compass. Leaders brought real-life organizational change initiatives and learned how to re-frame these initiatives in more “agile” ways. It was heartened to see how relevant these executives felt that this material is to the kind of leadership needed in the public sector.
