What is Agile Leadership?

Agile leadership isn’t a destination... it’s a journey

Agile leadership versus good leadership

Several leaders can believe that adding "agile" to "excellent leadership" makes you an agile leader and vice versa. Yet, this is untrue because agile leadership has a completely different feel than traditional leadership. Different leadership philosophies and a willingness to increase capacity and extend capabilities to be more flexible are the main differences. While this feels quite distinct from leadership, where leaders only practise agile out of compliance with a larger directive. Agile leadership is "excellent leadership" that improves; it is more than just "good leadership".

Agile leadership as a continuum

A mindset that is agile does not view things from a binary standpoint, such as agile or not. Agility should be viewed as a spectrum rather than as an all or nothing trait. Although the agile leader is one who adjusts, there are many of competent HR leaders in firms who do so infrequently. Although some HR managers use a command-and-control style of management, this does not necessarily mean they are ineffective managers. Unfortunately, due to their mindsets, many of these HR leaders find it more difficult than others to adjust. Agile leadership is a dynamic trait that evolves and gets better with time.
