The Pedagogy Principle: Teaching Leaders how to Teach

Do Agile Leaders know how to teach?

No one knows better than Johann Friedrich Herbart (1776-1841), a progenitor of modern Pedagogy, how foundational teaching and learning are to organizational agility. His theories on teaching are as relevant to agile leaders today as they have been for professional educators for the last one hundred and fifty years.

In the Pedagogy Principle we will explore a learning framework for agile leaders. Well discuss goals, content, and techniques for transforming leaders from traditional command-and-control autocrats who depend on defined process control models, to teachers, coaches, and stewards of agile values.
