I have always promoted the idea that we should be agile with agile, taking an agile approach to institutionalizing agile. A key is to take early, bold, small action steps that are low risk to get things moving and then learn, adjust and iterate from there. 1st gear, 2nd gear, 3rd gear.

Below are some easy, low-cost 1st gear options you can get started with and then progressively shift into higher gears from there. Virtual has always been a key aspect of being agile with agile, even more so now in a post COVID pandemic era. There is no time like the present to become a student of agility.
Confidential coaching virtually and face to face, in rounds of 13 sessions (typically 13 weeks/1 Quarter, can be faster/slower) through the lens of Everyday Agile Leadership and an Agility Operating System (AOS), with further rounds as desired. Utilizing various technology platforms to enhance the agile coaching.
"Mike is at the top of a very distinguished list of the best mentors and coaches in business. He strikes the rare balance between the discipline of a framework, personal and professional compassion, and the nudges to look inward and outward to maximize executive and company talents and mission. As a CEO, you might be able to run your organization effectively without guidance from a mentor like Mike, but why would you want to risk not giving it your best? Lebron James has a nutritionist and personal trainer, Eric Schmidt and Steve Jobs had a coach at Google and Apple, and most of the world's peak performers have similar support teams. Add Mike to yours!
