Scrum Alliance is replacing the Certified Agile Leadership I (CAL I) designation. Instead, there is now: CAL-Essentials (CAL-E), CAL-Teams (CAL-T), and CAL for Organisations (CAL-O). More information can be found on the Scrum Alliance website: https://www.scrumalliance.org/get-certified

The Sahota CAL1, will continued to be offered as a 2 day (or 3 day online) training as: CAL-E + CAL-O: “Agile” Culture & Leadership”.

Q: Do all CAL-E & CAL-O trainings cover the same content?

A: No. And there is a good reason for this.

All CAL1 trainings cover the same set of high-level learning objectives.

However, each training is as unique as the instructor. Each CAL1 reflects the unique leadership and organisational development journey of the instructor.

Our CAL1 experience, reflects the unique intellectual property developed over a decade of professional practice. Our approach has been proven around the world through the success of our graduates.

Q: What are the pre-requisites before CAL-E & CAL-O?

A: You are expected to have basic knowledge of Agile. This may have come to you through industry experience, reading, meetups or formal training. This course is designed for anyone seeking to foster a more “agile” high-performance organisation. It is accessible and essential for leaders in innovation, lean, human resources, etc. – not just Agile.

Participants are expected to complete 2 hours of videos and readings in advance of the training. Then there is more time to focus on discussion and exploration. The reading guide will be shared with participants after registration.

About the Instructor

User Avatar Michael Sahota

I believe people deliver astounding results when we fully engage them with Purpose in Safe, Connected workplaces. I help leaders cultivate their organisational culture. To show up in ways that invites others to show up. And to evolve structures and practices that foster a resilient adaptable organisation. I am a guide and teacher of organisational gardening. I lead by example. I lovingly invite awareness to increase options and choice. I foster this through: training, coaching, consulting, and facilitation. Since 2001, I have been fostering an Agile way of working. Since 2010, I have been helping organisations evolve their organisational culture and leadership to create places where "Agile" may flourish. As a Certified Enterprise Coach (CEC) and Certified Agile Leadership (CAL) Educator, I help leaders bridge the world between "Agile" and organisational reality.
