Transforming Organizations through Agile Leadership


For the past 50 years, our daily work consisted of getting as much done as possible, as quickly as possible. But as technology gets increasingly faster, our value is shifting from knowledge-based work to creative work; we’re no longer about being efficient, but rather being innovative.


Applied Agile combines neuroscience, emotional intelligence and agile methodology to create Agile Leadership: the intersection of personal and organizational transformation. Our participants thrive in the unknown, work iteratively and incrementally and focus on what matters. We’ll train you to use untapped areas of your brain to achieve greater creativity and innovation.

“There isn’t anybody saying I need to do these 20 things by tomorrow. I’m the one who organizes my schedule. And I make it very hectic because I feel like it’s important to always get a lot of stuff done. In a way, I’m the person who’s blocking my own performance.”

Program Participant


We work specifically in agile industries – environments that are disruptive, volatile, and likely to pivot. We train leaders to thrive at the intersection of speed, volume, and change.


We take leaders to the next level by both expanding their strengths and unlocking hidden potential. Our participants build the skills necessary to produce more with less effort, expand creative thinking, make decisions with clarity and ultimately foster an Agile culture.

“We can’t solve our problems with the same thinking we used to create them.”

Albert Einstein

We Produce Sustainable Performance

Our program has a cultural impact in the following areas:


More Results in Less Time

We teach practical tools for focus and peak performance, enabling leaders to see the right targets and create the maximum business impact.

If I can continue to be in the zone in those complicated situations, I can navigate this to the best possible outcomes for everyone involved.

The end result of it is – overall, I feel like my work life is in much better order. I have a stronger sense of confidence with all the different parts.   

– Program Participant, President


Resilient Leaders

We produce anti-fragile leaders who are resilient in high-stress situations, thrive in rapidly changing environments and are not in danger of burning out.

I’m just looking at it in a non-judgemental way. I see things pretty clearly. If I can continue to stay there, we’ll all get through this stronger as a team and everybody will win. 

I’ve been in the zone with things. I had my best delivery with a speech I didn’t prepare for. My peers said, “I just learned a lot about leadership from watching you. Thank you!”

Creativity and Innovation

We train leaders to be half Navy Seal, half zen master – to unlock their creative insight, and to achieve next level growth.

That day, I realized there were teams doing things that were totally on track, and I didn’t need to be checking it. I was like, wow, the ship is moving forward, the things I was worried about weren’t valid concerns. I was able to tackle this hugely complex project and the rest of the team was still moving in the same direction.

Powerful communication practices for quickly understanding others, communicating a vision, and producing safety/trust

No amount of information in the world was able to make a difference. The thing that moved the needle entirely was an emotional, connection, trust…a human thing. It really did.
