Braintrust Launches The Center for Agile Leadership with Inaugural Graduate Class

The Braintrust Consulting Group, a worldwide leader in Agile transformations, announces the launch of The Center for Agile Leadership™ and the inaugural class of Certified Agile Leaders™.

The Center for Agile Leadership (CAL) invited eight professionals from Montana based company, George’s Distributing, to strengthen their agility skills through a one-day instructional class focusing on leadership agility to become a Certified Agile Leader.

The Center for Agile Leadership develops the skills necessary to become a collaborative leader under the guidance of a Certified Agile Leader Trainer™. As the business environment continues to evolve, agility is recognized as a necessary trait for a leader to lead across cultures, generations, and geographies to achieve success.

Certified Agile Leader graduates possess all of the skills and tools necessary to successfully inspire others, build self-organizing and self-managing teams, set a vision, and support the team to produce amazing results. The Agile Leader certification indicates that a graduate has successfully demonstrated specialized agility skills in leadership through a 360° evaluation.

Brian Rabon, founder of the Center for Agile Leadership and The Braintrust Consulting Group, is an accomplished leader in the field of Scrum and Agile training and methodologies, a Certified Scrum Trainer®, Project Management Professional®, and now a Certified Agile Leader Trainer. Based on these experiences, he developed his leadership philosophy and stated, “Your success today lies in your ability to lead. By learning to apply the values and principles of Agile to the way that you lead, leaders can build teams that will walk through fire for them. Agile Leaders have more time for the important things in life like strategic thinking, their families, and themselves.”

At the conclusion of the training, Certified Agile Leader graduates are encouraged to implement their Agile Leadership skills in their daily routines and challenged to create an inclusive culture and exhibit a greater openness to ideas and innovations in their own businesses. Chelsey Frank, CAL graduate and President of George’s Distributing, said, “Certified Agile Leader training is exactly what our company’s core management team needed right now to help us grow this year. It will provide immediate results to take our company to the next level.”

The Center for Agile Leadership will offer both public and private Certified Agile Leader sessions for professionals with a passion for learning, a focus on developing people, and a strong ability to define and communicate a desired vision.
