About the course

Did you know agile executives deliver 25% higher profit margins than their non-agile peers? Curiosity is not only about having an attitude of exploration and experimentation. It is also about being able to manage the anxiety, doubt, and discomfort when exploring new and navigating through uncertainty and complexity. This is the cornerstone of agile leadership.
