Do you want to make sure that in these testing times, your organisation is doing its best to thrive?

There are a lot of uncertainties: changes in organising, from co-located to remote, difficulties both in business and the personal lives of people.

The stress from both the financial and personal difficulties can take over. Yet we need to work together to overcome them.

How to organise and lead in a way that enables everyone in our organisation to work together to create new solutions to overcome the business difficulties? And how to create a culture of mutual support and empathy to help people support each other?

Responsive Remote Teams Leadership Training

is a training for the leaders in your organisation, whether they are managers or influential experts.

In the training, the leaders will:

  • learn and explore topics together
  • take their learnings into the everyday work through experiments and improvement initiatives they come up together
  • reflect together to learn about their experiments and to design even better suited experiments to continue the improvement journey

The training has built-in customisation features so that it is adapted to your organisation’s context by default.

For Whom?

This training is for your company or business unit if you are:

  • Facing, or going to face challenges that will require renewal of business, ways of working and/or culture
  • You see healthy company culture, continuous improvement of business and meaningful and fulfilling work as key factors for success
  • You see learning together as a key competitive advantage.

We also offer this training for individuals as a public online training.

The best of both worlds

We have taken a long hard look at the recently published Management 3.0 Fundamentals Online Workshop. And we've reflected on our own experiences with facilitating Management 3.0 and the Future of Work Leadership trainings.

And we've distilled all that wisdom into one training to rule them all!

Read about the training curriculums that we have carried out together recently with our partners.

Our Training Format

The foundation training is a 5-week curriculum. In the first week, we will get to know each other and customise the training to align with your goals. For the next 4 weeks, the training will consist of one online workshop per week and the participants taking their learning into practice.

The training curriculum is designed for groups of 8 to 16 participants.

We offer coaching both in English (with a distinct and exotic Finnish accent) and in Finnish.

The training will consist of 10 hours of remote interactive workshops. In addition to that, you will receive a collection of material and exercises to improve in your daily work and take what you learn in the workshop into practice.

There will be 4 remote workshops, 2.5 hours each, one per week. The week between the sessions is for you to deepen your learning through our exercises and take it to practice in small ways through your own experiments at work.

Customised to serve you

Here are the ways in which we customise the training for our customers before and during the training

Depending on your organisation's rhythm, you might want to consider a more relaxed rhythm for the training. We can also accommodate a span of 2 weeks between workshop sessions.

The training is kicked off with a goals session, where we align your goals with the transformation potential of this training to create a shared vision for the training.

Participants will start their learning journey with a personal interview with our coach, Antti Kirjavainen.

You will have the option of continuing with a coaching curriculum after the foundation training.

  • How to involve everyone in improving how the work works?
  • How to manage the larger system instead of micromanaging people and teams?

Our Coaches

Antti Kirjavainen

My agile leadership journey started in 2008. I believe that commitment to developing business goes hand in hand with creating a healthy environment for people to work together and thrive.

As a playful and kind seeker of wisdom I promote appreciation of people, nature and healthy relationships between them.

I have coached many teams and organisations, in banking, media, teleoperator and hardware product development domains among others.

Tero Kadenius

I have been an active player in the agile and lean circles for over a decade.During that time I have facilitated dozens of workshops and helped change agents in various domains find new tools, practices and experiments to improve their work, productivity, resiliency and well-being.

I know how to help distributed teams overcome their challenges and reap the benefits of this new way of working. For the past 5 years I have worked with numerous teams as a Scrum Master and an agile coach. Key outcomes have been helping team members move away from rigid top-down process driven ways of working towards continuous improvement through experiments and self-organisation. Also, as a co-founder of our distributed company, I have learned a lot about how to make the work work in a remote setting.

All this has been a huge learning experience for me. This journey has inspired me to co-author two books on modern leadership, organisations and complexity.
