Lead Like Lasso – Agile Leadership Lessons Inspired by Ted Lasso


Lead Like Lasso: Agile Leadership Lessons Inspired by Ted Lasso is an engaging and interactive workshop designed to explore the leadership style of Ted Lasso and its application to Agile environments. The session uses Liberating Structures to facilitate group activities, discussions, and exercises to encourage participants to collaborate and experiment with Ted Lasso’s unique approach to leadership.

The session kicks off with an introduction to Ted Lasso and his quirky leadership style, followed by an interactive discussion using the 1-2-4-All Liberating Structure to explore how his leadership style can be applied in different environments.

Next, participants will experience their inner goldfish (and their 10 second memory) using the Troika Consulting Liberating Structure, where they will reflect on how to overcome external adversity, just like Ted Lasso.

The session then moves on to the 25/10 Crowdsourcing Liberating Structure, where participants generate ideas for building trust (i.e. “biscuits with the boss”) and strong relationships with team members, and then share those ideas with the group.

Finally, using the 15% solutions Liberating Structure, participants will decide on one thing they would like to act on the next day to foster a positive work culture. The group will then identify the most feasible and impactful ideas to implement.

Through this interactive workshop, attendees will gain valuable insights into Agile leadership and explore how Ted Lasso’s leadership style can be applied to their own Agile journey. By collaborating and experimenting with Liberating Structures, participants will foster collaboration, continuous improvement, and a truly enjoyable work atmosphere
