LEADERSHIP Development

LEADERSHIP Development


Our experience partnering with organizations to link cultural and leadership behaviors led us to two clear conclusions:

  • Products and processes don’t make great organizations. Agile leaders do.
  • Agile leaders possess a set of core leadership capabilities, regardless of their position within their organization.

Focusing on the successful development of strong, agile leaders at all levels of your organization positions them well to help the organization succeed and attract, develop, and retain talent along the way.


Think of agile leaders as the magnets attracting and retaining talent in your organization. Agile leaders are inclusive. They demonstrate an openness to new ideas and innovations, possess the tools needed to inspire others, and become agents of change. Agile leaders show flexibility and are quick to act, demonstrating the resilience necessary to adapt in any situation. They tolerate ambiguity, transition effectively through change, and translate complex problems into clear and specific actions. Their behaviors lead to higher engagement, trust, and the foundation of relationships.

LAK Group has uncovered six “game-changing” leadership attributes that are core to successful agile leaders.

Change Resilency

Agile leaders can effectively lead themselves and others through transitions associated with change. They are comfortable with ambiguity and embrace change to continuously improve and innovate within the organization. They have the courage to challenge conventional thinking and persevere in difficult and challenging situations.

Systems Thinking

Agile leaders have a holistic understanding of the organization and the impact of their decisions and behaviors. They seek to understand the relationships, effects, and delays among information, problems, people, events, departments, and systems.

Personal Integrity

It starts with genuine curiosity, transparency, and inclusion when dealing with others. Agile leaders make and meet commitments, while demonstrating ethical resolve in every circumstance. They have the determination to act even when the decision may not be popular.

Learning Agility

Agile leaders welcome the speed and flexibility of learning. They show the willingness and ability to apply that learning to perform successfully. They show up as competent and confident. These leaders can inspire others under new and ever-changing conditions.

Coaching Others

Agile leaders prioritize coaching, feedback, and planning when engaging with others. They actively develop people to strengthen the organization’s talent pipeline and promote each individual’s aspirations. They empower othersto act, removing obstacles, while allowing individuals freedom to
make decisions and thrive.


Influence and humility are foundational to their approach to leading others. People follow the person, not the position. This style of leader is enthusiastic and intentional about forming relationships which guide others.
