Fewer buzzwords. Fewer models, frameworks, “solutions”. Just leadership.
“Agile” is promising resilience, effectiveness and speed for your business. That requires distributed authority, a learning culture, engagement on all levels. How do we achieve all that? Just tell everyone how to work differently? The current culture of your organization is the result and outcome of your leadership. That new, “agile” organization you are looking for… what kind of leadership is going to be creating it?
Agile leadership is making a difference with intention. We focus on developing relationships, managing contexts and nurturing growth. In times of social distancing and working from home, all of these became harder and more important at the same time. All of the exercises of our training have been used remotely in the wild, now we are building the whole training from our and for our homes.
In a world where everything changes, the only thing that you can rely on is building strong relationship with people you work with.
On the Certified Agile Leadership Course (Essential/Teams), you will learn how to build these relations successfully and how to improve your leadership skills. Together with Scrum Alliance, we provide opportunity for all successful leaders to become Certified Agile Leader(s) and upgrade their leadership.

📌 How will you work on the course?
While you will be exposed to good leadership and a lot of valuable knowledge, this is not a course in theory. This is a course where you‘re invited to lead. Certified Agile Leadership program is a practical and pragmatic course, which will adapt to the wants and needs coming from the participants. All the necessary theories will be covered, but our focus is on real-life events, challenges and opportunities.
In this course, a diverse group of people becomes a team working on improving their personal leadership. “Agile” is the stance and journey of continuously improving. In that spirit, “agile leadership” is the conscious improvement of how we lead and follow. We need:
- to know who we are and what we want, and
- to understand how to reflect on your leadership – a mirror won’t cut it …
You may bring your comfort zone, but you might not spend much time on it.

What the participants said about Agile Leadership Course:
“I’ve just completed a two-day Certified Agile Leadership Course! This is, by far, the most useful course I have ever undergone. The moderators were great and I believe that anyone who wishes to make a change in their company should attend this course. I hope that Agile Serbia will continue to organize such interactive courses in the future!”
(Milica Milić, Product Manager, SRC sistemske integracije)
“I am very happy I had the opportunity to participate in Olaf´s Certified Agile Leadership course. It was such an amazing deep dive into what it means to be human combined with lots of practical tools applicable straight away. Maybe the most powerful thing was Olaf´s amazing ability to create a safe space that allowed collective learning to “just happen” – through Olaf´s consistency in modelling the way of leading together. I have experienced this happening before on some rare occasions when there is a world class facilitator in the room. What sets Olaf apart is his ability to help participants reflect what makes this “magic” possible – and allow us to find ways to apply the learning in our own context.”
