THE AGILE | INSTITUTE for MODERN LEADERSHIP

AGILE | INSTITUTE Mission and Organization

The Mission of AGILE | INSTITUTE is to provide educational, programmatic and consulting resources for individuals and organizations to create and sustain Communities of Equitable Opportunity in Urban Centers.


  • The AGILE | INSTITUTE provides training and education resources for individual AGILE | PRACTITIONERS and AGILE | COHORTS. AGILE | PRACTITIONERS generate resources  used by individuals to deploy holistic solutions within existing organizations using AGILE Methodology.  
  • AGILE | COHORTS are organized and developed to create new Holistic Ventures to generate economic and social (community) resources in Urban Centers. 
  • The AGILE | INSTITUTE is organized into four major departments 1) Regenerative Justice, 2) Cohort Training, 3) S.T.E.A.M. Education and 4) Holistic Ventures: 

  1. Regenerative Justice provides consulting and program development for organizations, businesses and government agencies looking for a way to integrate Inclusion, Diversity and Equity into the workplace culture for increased productivity and workforce morale. Regenerative Justice is also responsible for training AGILE Practitioners and Cohorts to properly use and deploy the AGILE Ecosystems Methodology.
  2. Cohort Training manages a Certification program that organizes holistic education curricula and learner activities with 3-Person Cohorts. Holistic Learning includes simulation, role play, self-identity, self-reflection, revealing unconscious bias and more. Cohort-based holistic learning not only delivers new knowledge, but it's aim is personal transformation. 
  3. S.T.E.A.M. Education & Training provides AGILE Practitioners and Cohorts with ecosystem-based tools and methodologies to accelerate STEAM education. This department also works with post-secondary STEAM institutions (4- year Colleges & Universities and Community Colleges) to provide AGILE Courses, Professional Development, Leadership Training and other educational & training resources based on the AGILE | STEAM. AGILE | STEAM is a unique methodology for  characterizing subjective complex human problems and ecosystems with the objectivity of traditional STEAM education.
  4. Workforce provides vocational STEAM and well as life-skills training for startup and well-established AGILE | VENTURES and other holistic ventures in Urban Centers. Workforce provides training that supports the AGILE Methodology and Mindset, which is to treat every member of the Workforce as "Assets" that generate "human resources/work." Workforce programs are based on Regenerative Justice Attributes and "workforce development" is in fact "marketing asset development and innovation asset development" to develop the human assets who produce resources in Holistic Ventures and in the Community.
  5. Holistic Ventures provides ecosystem-based Holistic Venture development. By definition, AGILE | VENTURES are holistic ventures, created by three-person cohorts, or AGILE | COHORTS. HOLISTIC | VENTURES are the culmination of the Institute's Vision which is to train Practitioners and Cohorts to create and support Holistic Ventures in Urban Centers. These "AGILE Urban Centers" are envisioned to create and cultivate communities of equitable opportunity for community prosperity and well being.
