About The Center For Agile Leadership®

The Center For Agile Leadership® is based on a new way of thinking. It’s leadership for the next generation of business. Using the principles of Agile, we teach leaders how to successfully inspire others and become agents for change within their organization and within their own lives.

By learning to apply the values and principles of Agile to the way that you lead, you can build teams that will walk through fire for you.

Brian Rabon, Founder

Brian Rabon is a pioneer. In the beginning of his career he was one of the first trainers and educators in the world to realize the power of Agile. Based on that vision, he founded The Braintrust Consulting Group and quickly grew the company into one of the leading Agile and Scrum training providers in the world.

Now 10 years later, Brian has a new vision. After training to over 10,000 professionals in Agile, Brian realized that these same core principles that get work done can also be applied to leadership and people management in all industries. Brian is now the only leadership expert in the world that is focused on teaching leaders how to take the proven principles of Agile and apply them to leading people.

In his own life, Brian has used the power of Agile to transform himself from a cog in a corporate machine to a master of his own destiny, trading a soul-sucking gray cubicle for the majestic views of Utah’s ski lifts. In addition to living the lifestyle of his dreams, Agile has allowed Brian to focus on his true mission in life – helping others to grow.

Rikki Schwartz, President

Rikki Schwartz is a seasoned Business Manager with a demonstrated track record of building teams that have profitably managed over $400 million in services since 2001, while staying laser-focused on process improvement, growth, staff development, and customer satisfaction. Rikki joined The Center For Agile Leadership® in 2018 after spending 16 years in management at Waste Management. Rikki originally became familiar with The Center For Agile Leadership® in April 2016, when she attended the Certified Agile Leader – Level I course. That training resonated deeply with her existing leadership philosophies — as if she’d been walking in a leadership-philosophy desert for her entire career, and suddenly found water. 

Today, she is honored and excited to apply those same Agile teachings to help grow the organization that originally inspired her to be a better leader, a better mentor and a better professional. Nothing is more rewarding to her than doing the same for emerging leaders out there, who are themselves “looking for water”.
