Intent-Based Leadership Summit 2023

Accelerating the shift from a culture of permission and waiting to intent and action


Intent-Based Leadership® (based on former submarine captain L. David Marquet's Turn the Ship Around) has been around for more than ten years, and many companies and leaders have already adopted this people-centric approach to leadership. We at Crisp and goAgile, see a big potential for leaders to get together and share their successes and intelligent failures – and maybe even create new relationships.

The challenge

Most leaders today realize that command-and-control is not working. Most empowerment initiatives end up being superficial. This is where Intent-Based Leadership comes into play. IBL is a very practical and powerful approach leading to creating an environment where people feel truly empowered.

We have met many leaders who have a positive personal experiences with IBL. We have also met several leaders struggling to harvest the benefits of IBL. We want to connect these change-makers to leverage together, build a community, and learn from each other, leading to creating an even bigger impact on their organizations and communities.

Who is this for

This event is for leaders familiar with leading more intentionally and who want to deepen their learning, share, and connect with like-minded people.
