You’ve built the innovation function, put a team in place, created the supporting processes and necessary governance to run it all, and now you’re wondering, “Where are all the game-changing ideas?” For many companies, this is a common predicament after their first serious venture into innovation.
The problem? Most companies jump into innovation by doing what they do best: creating processes and business systems that provide order and control. While these are important, innovation is a highly creative endeavor and most companies simply aren’t prepared for the cultural impact unleashed creativity will have on their organization.
The Seven C’s of Creative Leadership series is about arming leaders with specific skills and behaviors that are critical to leading innovation and fostering a creative culture. Most corporate leaders enjoy a high level of analytical prowess, but lack formal training and experience regarding creative endeavors. Our mission is to fill this leadership void that exists in so many companies across the globe.
This series features guests who live and breath creativity and innovation on the front lines, day-in and day-out. We’ve curated a diverse group with experience from top ad agencies, the Fortune 500 as well as leading authors.
Creative Leadership is the new frontier of leadership theory. We hope you’ll join us for this important conversation!
