What you can expect from the Personal Agility System

Peter Stevens, Inventor of the Personal Agility System

The Personal Agility System [PASs] is a simple framework for doing more that matters. At a personal level, it helps you understand what really matters to you and choose your actions accordingly. Because you know what matters and why, you have confidence in the priorities you set. It’s easier to decide what to do next. You get more of the right things done and have more energy while you do it!

PASs is also a coaching framework. You learn to build agreement among peers, managers and direct reports about what really matters to your organization, what to do and why. Actions and decisions become aligned. Priorities shift less often, so there are fewer interruptions. You can focus more and get projects done faster. You become more efficient and more effective!

What this workshop is and is not

This workshop…

  • is not about spinning the hamster wheel faster
  • is not about working harder or working longer
  • is about being more focused and effective at achieving your goals
  • is about developing the confidence to say ‘No’ when you need to
  • is about feeling good about what you accomplish

This online workshop gets you off the hamster wheel and into the driver’s seat! You stop wasting time on things that bring no value to focus on things that do!

“Life is an ocean. You’re captain of the boat! Master the stormy seas of change to reach your goals.”

Personal Agility is a simple visual framework for organizing yourself that helps you figure out and focus on what really matters. Unlike other approaches, the primary goals are for you to be effective, and for you, your family and your stakeholders to be happy with what you have accomplished!

The Personal Agility System teaches to you to apply Personal Agility to be more effective at work. You get good at doing what matters for you and your stakeholders. You have tools and techniques for creating alignment with those above you and below you in the organization.

You can set and hold a course towards your desired outcomes to fulfill your commitments. You can benefit from trustful and effective relationships with your customers, suppliers and stakeholders. And you’ll enjoy more fun and purpose in your work!

As a long-time Scrum Alliance Certified Scrum Trainer, Peter Stevens is a recognized Agile expert who has trained over 2’000 people to transform their world of work for the better. He is the inventor of Personal Agility(tm) and co-author of Personal Agility: Doing More That Matters.

By the end of this program you will:

  • Do more of what matters for you and your stakeholders
  • Recognize the forces driving your life or project so that you can do something about them
  • Have visual tools to guide you to your goals

With your colleagues, customers and stakeholders, you will communicate more effectively to:

  • Build trustful and effective relationships
  • Set and fulfill realistic expectations
  • Establish alignment up and down your organization

Frequently Asked Questions

Q: What tools or accounts are required?

A: Our conferencing system is (client required). We use to share course materials and we recommend Trello for managing your “artifacts”, and we use our own server for the forum and video sharing. These services are free but require registration.

Q: Can I participate when I am travelling?

A: I recommend a quiet, private space where you can talk in confidence and focus on the session. A reliable connection is essential. Trains and planes generally do not satisfy any of these expectations. If the hotel Internet is good enough, there is no reason not to participate from there.

Q: I have a busy schedule – Can I reschedule if there are conflicts?

A: All sessions are recorded, so if you miss a session, you can watch it at your convenience.

Q: Say I bought the Silver Package, can I upgrade later to a higher package?

A: Yes, you can. You save money if you buy the higher package at the beginning. You can also buy the whole package now, and take the second half of the course at a later date.
