Are you ready to take your Agile Leadership journey to the next level? Join a small team of cohorts on this six-month program that explores leadership in an Agile context and an Agile approach to change. This program is a mix of live, virtual participation each month, combined with individual work and cohort check-in.

Throughout the program, you will be identifying areas of personal growth and working on these with a Braintrust coach and members of your cohort. Guided by experienced CAL educators, this is an immersive program that helps advance your Agile Leadership skills.
