Team management and execution of change are critical for agile leaders. Most IT aces manage to survive and ride the pandemic-led chaos with the help of both techniques. In this article at Bethel University, Michelle Westlund explains the need for an agile mindset for leaders that enables performance flexibility. Often, they lack the necessary self-confidence and ability to pivot in uncertain situations.
The 2020 Crisis
Last year, the global lockdown encouraged leaders to think out-of-the-box to cover the uncovered areas of flexibility. Furthermore, IT and business leaders must develop intuitive skills that interpret transformation in almost every sphere of life. A roadmap to guide and exercise agile leadership is quintessential to survive the challenges of the post-pandemic phase.
Agile leadership is the power to take sensible decisions and actions in complex situations. To do so, leaders must focus their mind on four areas:
- Make adjustments from stability to agility.
- Have the courage to turn anxiety into anticipation.
- Instead of limiting your creativity, leverage it using limited available resources.
- Flex your wings from expertise to experimenting to innovate with flexibility and grace.
From now on, the future crisis and inescapable transformations demand strategic planning. So, to ascertain a reliable move, you must have a “treasure trove” of research. Listen and follow the top industry leaders to practice their practical guidance.
Since planned strategies are crucial to aligning your corporate vision, some constraints may block your creativity. Agile methodologies can help you overcome it and help you expand your digital learning to mitigate disruption. Agile leadership is necessary to initiate system-wide training to manage future uncertainties. Now is the time to move away from conventional business approaches to procure more responsive interpretations of innovation.
