How would you like to be rated as the most ‘agile leader’ people love to work with?


How often have you worked in a team where the leadership did not change direction when another way forward was staring them in the face?

Where the leader would not consult, but just stick with Plan A, whatever the feedback was telling them?

Have you been in the position of fall guy when the leadership failed to deliver the outcomes stakeholders required?


These situations are often the norm in corporate life and are a large contributor to the failure of leadership and teams.

Robert is the manager of a large club - he has approximately 75 staff and over 1,800 members. Robert has a problem with staff retention, often joking that his office door is revolving, although no-one is coming through. Robert realized his staff didn’t feel that he communicated with them, that he didn’t motive the team, or understand what was important to them. After taking the Foundation course on Leadership Agility he discovered his main problem was a lack of ‘Personal Values Sensitivity’, Robert has developed a flexible leadership style resulting in higher staff retention, talent recognition and a happy, extremely well motivated team. Before completing the Foundation course, he just wasn’t aware of the 12 potentially missing ingredients in his leadership.

Are you fresh from formal study, working your way through the management layers and aiming for the top, although just feel something is holding you back.  Employers are now looking for people who can re-invent themselves and their organisations in tandem. So, would you like the ability to:

  •  Identify your personal leadership agility strengths, by demonstrating the subtle personalized power of your communication,
  •  relationship building and knowledge utilisation
  •  Identify other’s personal leadership agility talents, so you can build a team which everyone wants to belong to
  •  Stand out as the ‘go to’ person for creating the innovation which comes from building a culture of intra and entrepreneurship
  •  Identify powerful role models and coach-mentors who can escalate your success.


Learning Leadership Agility has been the focus of Dr Aitken’s research based education, endorsed by the following Business Schools across the world:

  •  Birmingham University, UK
  •  Singapore Institute of Management
  •  Bond University, Australia
  •  National University of Ireland
  •  Perm State National Research University, Russia
  •  Wessex Business School, UK
  •  •   and for GeNext, Richard Huish Business School, UK.


Until now, the only way of accessing this most powerful global programme, has been to attend full-time Master’s courses. For the home-study course the 12 Leadership Agility practices are represented as 12 Career Birds, with each bird’s persona helping you easily spot the presence or absence of each practice. The Foundation course provides you with the following bird spotting binoculars, allowing you to search for your own and other’s:


  •  • Personal Values Sensitivity
    • Peacock, Purpose - motivational drivers, communication signals and ways of interacting
  •  • Sense Make-Give
    • Ostrich, Vision - knowledgeable and insightful about the world, makes uncertainty understandable for others
  •  • Create Learning,
    • Owl, Wisdom – create learning, leverage innovation opportunities and address complex problems together
  •  • Mindful of Impact
    • Hummingbird, Crisis – reflect, seek counsel, wait for critical events to unfold, aware of personal impact
  •  • Emotional Intelligence
    • Parrot, Feelings – connect with others fears, hopes, dreams, potential, produce emotional resilience
  •  • Access Capability
    • Goose, Resource – create skill connections, use external thought leaders, combine agile responses
  •  • Cultural Competence
    • Duck, Diversity – create different and unconventional insights, provide different windows on the world for renewal
  •  • One to Many Dialogue
    • Cockatoo, Communication –spread priorities, facilitate reviews, provide mediation and process consulting, ask critical questions, resolve conflict
  •  • Total Leadership
    • Dove, Role Modeling – consistent and authentic, role modeling change using informal and formal communication, represent the reputation of the team or organization
  •  • One to One Dialogue
    • Penguin, Connecting – honing knowledge and insight, facilitate adaption to changing circumstances, provide emotional resilience
  •  • Performance Challenge
    • Falcon, Competition – creates culture where everyday performance feedback is normal, frankness is the norm, small improvements to equal large gains, no surprise culture allows people preparation time for change
  •  • Agility Resilience
    • Swan, Viability – flexible responses by breaking habits, resilience for re-invention, adaptive self-management skills, continuous appraisal for responding with alternative options.


These ingredients for standing out as the most agile leader will be covered in the Foundation Program. You will be lead through each practice with a focus on self-analysis first and then identification of the practices in others. To achieve the most from this course you would aim to cover 2 practices a month, deepening your own practice and identification before moving onto the next practices. At the end of the course your reflective essay will become your leadership agility development map, and evidence for Certification by Career Birds, and the association this programme content has with the endorsement of worldwide Business Schools.

  • The Leadership Agility practices have enabled me to take the first steps towards instilling a culture of leadership at all levels of our organisation by providing a clear and simple framework with which to identify the appropriate behaviors and desired outcomes from the application of each of the practices.
