Event description


In brief: Two 2-hour online sessions on consecutive days covering the Discovery and Exploration modules of the Lean-Agile engagement model Agendashift (strapline: “Outcome-oriented change and continuous transformation”), certified as a level 1 class by the Open Leadership Network.

When: 3pm-5pm BST / 10am-12am ET, July 16th and 17th.

This online workshop is aimed at coaches, consultants, and managers wishing to:

  • Develop their coaching and leadership skills in the areas of enquiry, facilitation, and change leadership
  • Deepen their appreciation of the Lean-Agile landscape and complementary bodies of knowledge, in particular Clean Language and Cynefin

Who should attend?

This workshop is aimed at agents and leaders of organisational change – whether internal or external, specialist practitioner or sponsor. Whilst the majority of attendees have been coaches and consultants, a significant number have held managerial and business leadership roles.

As compared to a private Agendashift workshop, this public workshop is more focussed on skills than the unique needs of your organisation. You will however have ample opportunity to practice them with your particular context in mind and to understand how Agendashift can help you meet your organisation's needs in areas such as these:

  1. Launching, refocusing, or reenergising continuous transformation in your organisation
  2. Enhancing your organisation’s internal coaching and change management capability
  3. Embedding outcome-orientation and continuous transformation through leadership development

We are glad to offer generous discounts to employees of public sector, eductional, and non-profit organisations, also to participants of past Agendashift workhsops. Please get in touch for a discount code if this applies to you.


Session 1: Discovery: Describing where we would like to get to

  • Exploring organisational context, objectives, obstacles, and outcomes
  • Celebration-5W and our Clean Language-inspired coaching game 15-minute FOTO
  • Plan on a page

Session 2: Exploration: Prospecting for opportunities

  • Debriefing your Agendashift delivery assessment (set as prework, sent out a week in advance)
  • Generating and organising outcomes
  • Recognising alternative approaches

Both sessions will give you plenty of opportunity to practice the language of outcomes – conversations that explore needs and identify key outcomes – essential whenever and wherever you wish to encourage collaboration, self-organisation, and innovation. You will also get practical hands-on experience with some exciting open source tools.
