Leaders Journey
Certified Agile Leader!

To effectively lead your agile organization, you need to be equipped with the agile leadership skills to coach the cultural mindset shift required to evolve from autocratic management practices to the agile leadership culture of influence and innovation. 

You will be the Transformation Leader that finally delivers Organizational Agility!

I, Thomas Bookhamer (founder of Leaders Factor), have spent years iterating through my learning and discovery on how to raise my own leadership ability. I have based this certification on what I've learned through my 20+ years of experience of successfully leading/coaching organizational transformations by iterating with clients on the cultural mindset shift and agile leadership skills to evolve from an autocratic management culture of authority to a leadership culture of influence and innovation. 


Completing your Leaders Journey Certified Agile Leader Training is just the beginning! The Certification is not the goal! The goal is SUSTAINABLE ORGANIZATIONAL AGILITY!


Following the certification, you will need to grow in your leadership competency to lead your organization through the Agile transformation journey. As a Certified Agile Leader, (LJ - CAL), you qualify to join the Agile Leaders Community (LJ - ALC) where your leadership competency journey begins. The LJ-ALC learning community where you will find fellow Certified Agile Leaders that are eager to share their experiences, which in turn will stretch your thinking and provide new awareness. - See LJ - ALC below!

You are the future of Transformational Coaching!

Current Overview - subject to change

Day #1 (4 hr)

  • 5 Reasons
    There are reasons agile transformations continue to repeat the same limited results over and over again. This pattern of repeated results became unacceptable for me. If you are an agile leader, coach, or scrum master, the same may be true for you. 
    Actionable Take-aways: 4 Values of the Leaders Journey, The Leaders Factor, the 5 Reasons, Current State vs Future State, Tipping Point, and the 5 Levels of Leadership.
  • What is Agile Leadership?
    In this session you will learn the important difference between autocratic management practices and leading an agile organization. 
    If you’re to be an effective agile manager or leader, you have to know how to effectively lead through influence. The most effective method of influencing another person is a deep understanding of this change process we call coaching. You cannot lead unless you can coach. Actionable Take-aways: 6 Steps of a Coaching Conversation, and a Coach's Path to Change!

Day #2 (4 hrs)

  • Directing to Connecting
    A coaching conversation is more about connecting than it is about directing. This session will provide new awareness while encouraging you to think into the results you may be experiencing through the management practice of directing people. The mindset shift to connecting is counter-intuitive, it is far easier to just tell people what to do! This style of communication is clearly part of our leaders journey as we evolve from directing to connectingActionable Take-aways: 7 Mindset Shifts from Directing to Connecting.

  • Communication Awareness
    Communication awareness is very important to our ability to structure our conversations in such a way as to encourage others to think into their results and NOT imprint them with our answers! Sounds great, but this is not as easy as it sounds. Actionable Take-aways: 32-page behavioral patterns and communication assessment report, Action Plan, recognizing complementary relationships.   

Become a Leaders Journey Certified Agile Leader and be equipped to evolve your client to a leadership culture of influence and innovation. You will be the Transformation Coach that finally delivers Organizational Agility!

Autocratic management methods are outdated and ineffective in today’s culture of innovation, the lean agile mindset, and knowledge work. Leaders that resist this new awareness are being left behind. This is not limited to agile organizations.
