Are you a manager/director, product lead, project/delivery manager, Scrum Master or internal coach? If you’re thinking:
“How can we get better results from our Agile implementation?”
“How can my team have a better working experience?”
“How do I grow as an Agile leader?”
Attend “Practical Agile Leadership,” a unique training with Gil Broza, to take your performance as an Agile leader, and your team’s performance, to the next level.
Having supported hundreds of Agile leaders at companies large and small since 2004, I am familiar with leaders’ questions, concerns, and problems. My experience with 100 corporate clients and my many mentors have taught me what works, what matters, what to watch out for, what to ignore, and what to do differently. Let me share all that with you.
This training will increase your ability to:
Explain — in plain language — what being Agile actually means
Contextualize your leadership role in an Agile environment
Launch work initiatives the Agile way
Ensure higher Agility across the value stream
Minimize the cost of change and maximize safety with Technical Agility
Express the necessary conditions for empowerment and engagement, and customize your role in fulfilling those conditions
Use situational awareness and empowering techniques to help people grow and improve their results
Help your team achieve high performance with only a few techniques (and know which trouble signals to pick up on)
Increase team member collaboration and contribution by making a few simple changes to your meetings
Realize which pre-Agile attitudes and techniques you and the team have in your blind spot and replace them with Agile-minded ones
Go beyond “implementing Agile practices” to working in an Agile manner and truly making the Agile promise happen
Have a reliable process for continually evolving your identity and role as an Agile leader
Wondering how this course compares to Certified Agile Leadership (CAL)? CAL is neither a requirement nor an alternative. In the words of many participants who had taken it previously, our course complements it, helping you become a better Agile leader of people in the messy reality of the world.
Each segment in this training involves a mix of interactive teaching, group discussions, activities, and reflection. We go light on theory and heavy on pragmatism. Expect conversations at multiple levels, frequent introspection, instructor advice, and insights from your peers.
If you truly participate and apply yourself, you — and subsequently your team and organization — will see the difference. Just to back that up, if you decide at the end of the first day that it’s not for you, tell the instructor (Gil). Return all the materials you received, and we’ll refund your ticket less a 20% reversal fee. No questions asked.

The course’s delivery style
(also online, except the physical proximity part :-))
Gil masterfully presented this course online using some of the best tools and practices that enabled all the participants to actively engage in the learning process. The training and the takeaway tools continue to provide amazing value to my leadership growth both at work and my personal life.
- Jeff GortonDirector of Client Experience, Pethealth
Highly recommended for people leaders at all levels, Gil's course broadens the definition of Agile, giving leaders a true sense of its value. With a keen focus on purpose, people and values, he showed us how to adopt Agile as a mindset and improve our ability to deliver value to our customers.
- Rachel Di SalleSenior Manager, Rogers Media
I was immediately able to apply principles I learned in this course -- identifying cost of change beyond dollars, asking for permission to help, chartering initiatives for understanding expectations and identifying gaps. The course was packed with information, and I use the printed checklists in meetings.
- Corina StoddardProduct Platform Manager, Canada Post
It has become very clear why our team failed at our first agile attempt, but now the way forward looks very bright.
- I. M.Development Manager
An eye-opening experience for technical and non-technical leaders alike. Gil does a fantastic job of articulating the motivation behind the process and how Agile tactics alone fall short of enabling agility. Two days of instruction and guided self-reflection triggered a paradigm shift of how I approach and advocate for Agile.
- Warren GrayTechnical Lead, Arctic Wolf Networks
The content focused purely on the Agile Mindset and making Agile choices. So much of the training we are offered mixes behaviors and frameworks, when in fact the Mindset is the hardest to master. The course certainly lives up to its name, imparting a lot of practical knowledge on applying agile behaviors in the workplace.
- Dan ParsonsLead Agile Coach, Fidelity Investments
This course will perfectly complement what you have already learned either through your own experiences or in other agile leadership courses.
- Alexandra UrseaAgile Leader
It's a fantastic training and an opportunity to get outside of the process of Agile. I'm walking away with a very different mindset, a much more open, human, people-centric kind of view.
- Craig DialLead ScrumMaster, cPanel
As a ScrumMaster, I've taken many Agile training and workshops; Gil's Agile Leadership training was very different and enlightening. Instead of focusing on implementation, practices and techniques, he focuses on values and beliefs as drivers of behaviors. Highly recommended especially for people at leadership levels.
- Efrat WareSr. ScrumMaster, Fidelity Charitable
Amazing amalgam of practical take-aways and deep underlying principles.
- Alex MorozovLead Member of Technical Staff, Arctic Wolf Networks
Now I have a vocabulary to apply and some strategies to use that will help me become more effective in my communication with my peers, my management, and my teams so that we can all grow and learn together.
- Jennifer BleenProgram Manager, Huntington National Bank
Now I have some specific steps, techniques, and tools that I can go back and apply, while growing myself into my next role.
- Kamran KhanScrumMaster/Agile Coach, Cisco
Absolutely worth the time -- I would have used PTO for this if required.
- Dave S.Software development project manager (attended an in-house session)
I left the workshop with both a much better defined framework of what soft skills are needed to grow my team, and techniques to improve those skills.
- Byron JungSoftware development project manager
I found the information Gil provided invaluable and very well presented. The insights gained in that seminar will change my approach to software development forever.
- Alon SabiCTO, Functionpoint Software
Getting back to work today after an amazing two day offsite workshop feeling very energized and invigorated! Gil Broza gave us some excellent ideas to amplify what we're doing now to continue our Agile journey. I have renewed confidence that my efforts to give people autonomy and safety will yield amazing things!
- Josh AssadDirector, R&D
Gil brings an enormously helpful message that companies ignore at their peril if they want to deepen their investment in Agile. He’s experienced in many of the challenges to Agile teams, and resourceful in coaching teams through new challenges.
