Certified Agile Leadership training – Leading with Intention
Is this about you?
- I want to be challenged and discover what kind of leader I am.
- What does leadership mean for me?
- What kind of leadership will help me achieve what I want?
“If Agile is the solution, I want my problem back!“(Olaf Lewitz, Certified Entreprise Coach®)
Agile leadership model
Leadership is making a difference with intention. We focus on developing relationships, managing contexts and nurturing growth. In times of social distancing and working from home, all of these became harder and more important at the same time. All of the exercises of our training have been used remotely in the wild, now we are building the whole training from our and for our homes.

Online and virtual – How does that work?
“Leaders are those who step first into unknown and danger.”Simon Sinek
We’ve been hosting online courses and designing remote learning experiences for years before a virus forced many of us to stay at home. All of our CAL classes since March have been hosted online, and the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. Most people are surprised how motivated and energised they still feel after two or three days on Zoom.
Watch the feedback of our first virtual class here:
The course starts with a survey and some preparation work before we meet, helping you to analyse your current knowledge in relation to the course. This helps you and the group to decide where to dive deeper and how to invest our face-to-face time. There will be a video call upfront where we will get to know each other. You focus on what to prepare and share your objectives for the course. We set you up for taking full responsibility for your learning journey during the two days we spend together.
We might ask you also to take the lead for a topic in the course. Everybody in the course will be challenged, independent of how long you’ve already been leading or how experienced you are in the agile context. Olaf will co-create the content with all of you, modelling the agile way of leading together: from the start of creating a container of trust until diving into successful examples of agile transformations. The most effective agile methods and tools as well as the TrustTemenos leadership model will be used to work with the content of the course. It is an art to know when to lead and follow. This course is special in that Olaf will be taking part as well and contributing their own personal stories. This fluent change of roles and responsibilities, deciding what to do in which context and situation is adding to your experience.
On the first day the focus will be on your personal journey. On day two we will apply our learnings and principles, along with our model and other tools to the frame of agile organisations. Be prepared to be surprised and challenged. You may bring your comfort zone but you might not spend much time in it.

“Unsurprisingly there was no ‘step-by-step official guide’ to Agile Leadership handed out that we had to swear to never divulge. There was, however, an immaculately created ‘safe’ space for learning a bunch of great techniques, models and ways of thinking backed by the trainer’s practical expertise and experience. The learning was enhanced by group participation, which is both a credit to the participants and a credit to the ability of the trainers to elicit the best from them. This is very much a leadership course for those who need to lead and influence, it is not a summary of Agile frameworks. It would be completely impractical and a detriment to the course to attempt to make it so. If you want to know about the specific details of any Agile framework, take additional courses which are specifically designed for that purpose.”
“There are many CAL courses, each one slightly different with the facilitators own style imprinted onto the course; knowing this is why I specifically chose this course facilitated by Olaf & Christine who are both world class in their abilities and sensitivities. The Trust Temenos CAL course is also one of the rare CAL course to be delivered by a pair, it is especially beneficial that they are a mixed pair (Male/Female) as the blend of energies is a great compliment and they have a great sense for knowing what energy to bring in at what time to help uncover multiple perspectives. Olaf & Christine and their Temenos (Containers of Trust) experience helps set up an environment not just conducive to learning, but one which is designed for “Showing Up” whole so we can truly connect on a deeper human level with each other. Learning within this incubator is accelerated as we are able to drop the masks early on and talk about how Leadership has failed us, and how we have failed Leadership. In an enlightening personal exploration of our Leadership styles and the positive/negative impact it has on both others and ourselves, we learn more about ourselves and give ourselves new choices on how we want to show up as the Leaders of our own journey. An honest, truthful and beautiful experience with an open group of fellow explorers, all enabled by Olaf & Christine’s effortless facilitation and compassion. Highly recommended, even for those not seeking a CAL Certification.”
“I am very happy I had the opportunity to participate in Olaf´s Certified Agile Leadership 1 course. It was such an amazing deep dive into what it means to be human combined with lots of practical tools applicable straight away. Maybe the most powerful thing was Olaf´s amazing ability to create a safe space that allowed collective learning to “just happen” – through Olaf´s consistency in modelling the way of leading together. I have experienced this happening before on some rare occasions when there is a world class facilitator in the room. What sets Olaf apart is his ability to help participants reflect what makes this “magic” possible – and allow us to find ways to apply the learning in our own context.”
