Agile leadership is on everyone’s mouth and, according to modern management literature, should be the “best practice of leadership”. As you search Internet blogs, magazines, or textbooks, you’ll find more and more tips and hints on how to lead an executive agile. It is noticeable that these tips have often been compiled by coaches, researchers and experts. But how can a leader implement and learn this kind of leadership in everyday life?
Certain behaviors and values that are associated with agile leadership must be followed. In my current research, I have taken the most mentioned values and presented them to 66 executives in an online survey (Lindner 2019). I conducted the data collection together with Tobi- as Greff of the AWS Institute. With the help of sliding reg- lern, the respondents were able to weight the values. I have always taken opposite values, such as perfection and speed. The result can be seen in Figure 1.
The question now is whether a leader can so easily change habits and values. Of course, people are able to make certain changes to personality, but this requires a lot of perseverance. Our personality has been constantly changing since our birth and is influenced by our environment as well as our own actions and actions. In practice, it turns out that even small interventions in one’s own character help people to live happier and more successfully. A first teaser from the article can be found here.
