Agile Leadership in an Ever Changing World

In today’s tech driven, highly communicative and fast paced world; rapid, constant, and disruptive change has become the norm. The current way of doing things is no longer a guarantee of success – what succeeded in the past is no longer a guide to what will succeed in the future. We live in a VUCA world with different and unfamiliar challenges happening every day and our leaders need to be agile and creative enough to rise to these challenges. 

“At The LLC Academy, we create learning programmes geared towards the personal growth and development of leaders in corporate South Africa. This, in turn, contributes to the upliftment of South Africa as a whole,” says Eileen Thornhill, Director of The LLC Academy. “Our programmes cater to all levels of leadership; ‘leaders of self’, ‘leaders of others’ and ‘leaders of leaders’ and are geared towards creating leaders that are future fit.” 

Agile leaders support teamwork, collaboration, employee satisfaction and flexibility. An Agile leader recognises and accepts that there is always going to be uncertainty, and is always ready to drive their teams toward on process of continual learning and constant improvement. 

“Agile leadership is focused on outcomes, which means that an agile leader can quickly respond to and resolve issues that are getting in the way of team productivity,” says Thornhill. “This responsiveness is a central component of agility. These leaders are problem solvers focused on the end goal, and encourage their teams to work together to find solutions, rather than assigning blame when things go wrong.” 

“Agile leadership encompasses a mindset of constant improvement. Even if an agile leader has already found a way of resolving a problem, the mindset is one of constant tinkering. They don’t stop once the issue is ‘fixed’ – they continue to look for an even better solution, an even more efficient, functional, adaptable way of doing things.” 

“The LLC Academy is agile in the way we deliver our programmes,” says Thornhill. “We provide different learning styles and mediums of delivery, and offer customisation to client context.” 

“A rapidly changing world needs leaders who can roll with constant changes and see opportunities where others see roadblocks,” says Thornhill.  

If you want to grow your leaders on this way to boost team productivity and responsiveness to new challenges, The LLC Academy offers a range of programmes curated and designed to do just that. Contact us if you would like to know more about our programmes and the B-BBEE benefits they offer.
