WALKING WITH AGILITY

culture of accountability

Unlocks the behaviours and mindsets of Be-ing Agile

At Walking the Talk, we know that you need friendly expert advice. You also need well tested tools to help you define and bring your target culture to life. We have created a set of practical tools and products that make culture transformation even simpler, faster, and more actionable.

Walking with Agility

We have an important question for you: Does your organisation need to better anticipate, and pivot to, repeated disruptions, challenges and opportunities created by a rapidly changing and unpredictable market environment?

We’re pretty sure that your answer to that question is yes. But how can you achieve that? Our research shows that the success, sustainability and pace of transformation depends less on capability, but more on culture. What is required is a simple, core set of mindsets and beliefs: customer centricity, empowerment, collaboration and innovation/experimentation.

At Walking the Talk, we have designed and tested a programme that unlocks these mindsets in people and seeds in them the behaviours that create agility in others.

Our Walking with Agility programme:

  • Unlocks the behaviours and mindsets of Be-ing Agile – customer centricity, collaboration, empowerment and experimentation.
  • Creates opportunities to ‘try on’ mindsets and reflect on their impact.
  • Quickly exports new habits and patterns of working outside the programme itself.
  • Articulates on two essential ideas:
    • Behavioural experiments/habits
      Experiments are easy to implement and visible to others. They are iterative, scalable and repeatable. When done at scale, they create new experiences not only for programme participants but also for those they interact with on a daily basis.
    • The tipping point
      To deliver experiments at scale, you need to shift the beliefs and behaviours of your leaders, middle-managers and influencers so that they role model experimenting. This seeds the new agile behaviours and mindsets in the organisation and creates an unstoppable movement.

What our Walking with Agility programme does that you will find nowhere else

This programme focusses on enabling people to make immediate, concrete changes to accelerate high-performance. Right from the first intervention in the programme, people think differently and are able to apply something new in their day to day.

Our programme naturally creates a backlog of behavioural experiments with an ongoing stream of new behaviours being tested and trialled. Participants are encouraged to embrace the growth that comes from experiments that fail as much as those that succeed.

The Walking with Agility programme maintains challenge, focus and boosts motivation through a sense of achievement. The programme can be customised in multiple ways - as a ‘hot house’ to pack a concentrated punch, or ‘little and often’ to spread out over several months and avoid over-burdening teams. Between sessions, the programme uses digital nudges, conversations and activities to reinforce new beliefs and mindsets.
