Leading in Dynaxity – Leadership Reflection

Leadership in an environment that is characterized by high dynamic and complexity (dynaxity) requires the structure and design of (more) agile organizational units. This does not require less leadership, but rather a different kind of leadership. This program therefore provides a precise map of classic and agile leadership and the associated attitudes. Contents here are: - Why leadership changes and must change - Constructive handling of ambiguity, dynamics and complexity - Leading teams in a potential-oriented manner – role and strength-based cooperation

Introducing Agility

For most of us, Agility has become a hype word within our daily business and sometimes it seems that it has become a term that is used as a solution for everything. But what does Agility actually mean and where does it come from? Do we use the term in the right context today? What are Agile values, principles and common methods? Do you have an understanding of when to use Agile approaches - and when not? Meet your virtual thyssenkrupp colleagues Kelly and Tom and find answers to these questions in this thyssenkrupp Academy E-Learning.

Change Management and agile approaches

Do you know that about yourself? You are part of a change process that is necessary and already well planned – and yet the implementation does not work, and some team members are already in resistance. You are not alone, this is the case in 70% of all change processes! Whether it is the implementation of the New Year’s resolutions or the digitalization – change always means behavioral change and the “human factor” is not always sufficiently considered in its unpredictability. During this program, you will receive a practical toolbox to steer change processes in a pragmatic way. You will shed light on your own role in change processes and the appropriate inner attitude. Working with the toolbox and on your own attitude follows basic principles of agile work. In this way, you additionally gain a general understanding of agile methods and reflect on their areas of application outside of change management. Already during the program, in small groups you will start to develop concrete change measures for real change challenges in your team or project, working in an agile way. You will define the “why” of your own change challenge more clearly and understand how you can shape the change in a positive way.
