Practical Agile Leadership

Are you a manager, project/delivery lead, RTE, or ScrumMaster? If you’re thinking:


“I want/need to improve our Agile delivery,”


“Our next Agile initiative will be challenging,” or


“I want to grow as an Agile leader”

Then register for “Practical Agile Leadership,” a two-day training with Gil Broza. Regardless of your starting point, it will take your performance as an Agile leader to the next level.


Almost every organization is interested in Agile now: starting to use it, expanding its use, or strengthening its implementation. People like you, who lead teams and projects, are key to successful delivery. Having supported hundreds of Agile leaders at companies large and small since 2004, I am familiar with their questions, concerns, and problems. My real-world experience and 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 the elements, structure, and significance of an Agile mindset (all in plain language)
  • Contextualize your role in the Agile setting
  • Launch work initiatives the Agile way
  • Ensure higher Agility across the value stream
  • Use situational awareness and empowering techniques to help people grow and improve their results
  • Express the necessary conditions for team empowerment and engagement, and customize your role in fulfilling those conditions
  • 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
  • Control the cost of change for sustained Agility
  • Notice the pre-Agile attitudes and techniques you and the team have in your blind spot and replace them with Agile-minded ones
  • Move away from “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


Each segment in this two-day training involves a mix of interactive teaching, individual and group activities, and discussions. We go light on theory and heavy on practical application. Expect conversations at multiple levels, frequent introspection, instructor advice, insights from your peers.


Location: This course will most likely take place at the Marriott at Research Triangle Park, or nearby.


Class size: Maximum attendance is 18 people. To maintain diversity and cross-pollination, we limit same-company attendance to four people. (If you have five or more, please write to us.)


Cancellation: If you need to cancel more than 30 days before the course, feel free to find someone to take your place. If you can’t find a substitute within this time frame, we’ll refund all but $400 to cover our administrative costs.


If you cancel within 30 days before the course, we can’t provide a refund. However, you may find a substitute.


No matter when you need to cancel, if you find a substitute, please let us know ASAP who that person is. It’s up to you to take care of payment arrangements with that person. Bonuses are not transferable between registrants.


A lot of course attendees don’t realize that the early commitments involved in putting on courses pose a financial and schedule risk to the instructor. Nobody ever wants to cancel a course due to low registration. These days the challenge is harder, because more and more people sign up really late, way after the “last responsible moment” for the instructor. So we’re being very transparent when we’re saying, our pricing structure is designed to reward early commitment:


  • Register in October: pay US $1,000 (= Cdn $1,280; our shopping cart can only do Canadian dollars, sorry)
  • Register in November: pay US $1,150 (= Cdn $1,470)
  • Register in December: pay US $1,300 (= Cdn $1,660)
  • Register in January: pay US $1,450 (= Cdn $1,850)
  • Register in February: pay US $1,600 (= Cdn $2,040)


You may buy tickets in our online store, securely, using your credit card or PayPal account. Alternatively, contact us for an invoice.


If you intend to buy 3 or 4 tickets, contact us for a 10% discount (on all tickets) and to arrange payment.

"Pay my way" special (Toronto only)

Are you keen to attend the Toronto session on October 18-19, but your company won’t pay or you’re between roles? If you’re willing to pay for this education out of pocket, let Gil know and if it’s still possible, you’ll pay half-price ($850 + HST).


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.




  • Increase Agility and improve delivery with practical insights, practices, and tools.
  • Expand your Agile leadership repertoire so you can tackle more and bigger challenges.
  • Boost your “leadership ROI”: redesign your leadership activities for better results.
