Agile Transformers – Autobots versus Decepticons – the Essence of Successful Leadership

We have all experienced different styles of leadership and know that some are more effective than others, but do we know why, and what works?

Imagine a Leader with the vision, charisma and leadership skills of Optimus Prime. He rallies the noble Autobots, fights the evil Decepticons and motivates his fellow Autobots to triumph against all odds. Is he a good leader?

Imagine a Leader with the power and presence of Megatron. He bullies his Decepticon troops, he disrespects others. He is focused and determined. He achieves some success but at what cost to his fellow Decepticons? Is he a good leader?

Whether you are an industry executive trying to motive teams to take a “can do” attitude and achieve success in the face of towering deadlines, or a leader of people trying to introduce an Agile way of working into a siloed, regulated organization, you will benefit from this entertaining and thought-provoking presentation.

You will gain an appreciation for just why an Agile approach to leadership works: why it enables creativity, optimises productivity and avoids robot-mentality. You will leave recognizing the hallmarks of agile leadership and with a sixth sense for spotting Decepticons!
