In her keynote speech, Jude Jennison introduces 7 leadership skills that horses teach us about leading change. She explains why they are critical to business and the impact these skills have on clients, teams and organisations.
Jude inspires her audience by sharing her personal accounts of life and leadership, the lessons she has gained through her corporate leadership experience and how it was only when she overcame her fear of horses that her leadership skills developed in earnest.
Audiences are regularly moved by her stories of working with horses and leave the talk inspired to fine-tune their leadership and develop the courage, compassion and commitment that Jude role-models in every day work and life.
Jude is an international speaker, Horse Assisted Educator and author of the book Leadership Beyond Measure. She helps senior leaders develop embodied leadership skills through live events and workshops with horses.

In challenging and rapidly changing business environments, new leadership skills and behaviours are needed to lead through uncertainty and transform business. Leaders need to be agile and influential at all levels within the organisation. The old style of command and control no longer works. Instead, blame, judgment and criticism need to be replaced by responsibility and shared leadership.
Organisations who embrace a collective leadership approach will engage teams, inspire their clients and create lasting change.
Research shows that in the presence of horses, people are more aligned, more authentic and more transparent in their approach. Horses model leading from the collective, where every member of the herd takes responsibility for combined success. Jude will explain how working with horses enables teams to model collective leadership and lead change with confidence and clarity.

Today’s fast moving, highly competitive marketplace is placing unprecedented pressure on organisations and individuals to develop and change. From taking advantage of technology innovations to capitalising on the opening up of global markets, protecting ourselves from economic uncertainties to understanding the expectations of our customers and workers; the need for strong leadership has never been greater. Why? Because everything rises and falls on leadership.
And leadership is not about position or job title. Leadership is about the person. Strong leaders give hope and confidence. They provide the optimism that leads to success and achievement, an optimism that can so easily be affected by uncertainty and change. Leadership is a skill that can be learnt and developed.

Are you frustrated with leadership wanting to delegate the Agile transformation and not getting involved? Come to this talk and learn about new ways to facilitate leadership engagement, not just buy-in. Learn how to form an Agile Leadership Scrum or Kanban team, where leadership will understand that they are responsible for the success or failure of the Agile transformation.
As Edwards Deming once said, “It is not enough that top management commit themselves for life to quality and productivity. They must know what it is that they are committed to that is, what they must do. These obligations cannot be delegated.”
Thus, leaders must understand what it is they must do and what they are committing to for an Agile transformation to be successful.
There is something for every Agilist in this talk. Leaders will learn a new paradigm for Lean and Agile thinking and understand how they can actively lead an Agile transformation. Agile coaches will gain new tools and techniques for engaging leaders to build a significantly powerful guiding coalition for the transformation. Agile team members will learn how to leverage leadership support to quickly resolve impediments, as well as increase transparency, and coordination.
Attendees will learn:
- Creating leadership participation in a Scrum or Kanban team to lead the Agile transformation
- Overcoming impediments to change management (e.g. leaders don't have time to participate)
- How to coach leaders to think in terms of Lean and Agile leadership
- Measuring Agile transformation success at the leadership level and understanding the return on investment
- Sustaining the change culture so leaders will continue to participate
According to author and long-time advisory consultant Ken Gonzalez, leadership is not a spectator sport, you need to actually try being a leader in order to become one. Ken also says that leadership now matters far more than management.
Larry Cooper says that anyone at any level can be a leader - the real role of existing leaders is to nurture and create new ones. Larry also believes that when an organization’s leaders no longer have to make any day-to-day decisions is the point at which they will have achieved true leadership agility.
So with all the talk about leadership agility and how leadership is now more valued than management, how are we to make sense of it all?
In this lively talk Ken and Larry will explore the differences between leadership and management, why leadership now matters more, the real role of leadership, the challenges to achieving it, and what leadership agility looks like. Finally, they leave you with three key take-away’s for better understanding the premise of true leadership agility.
