Ideation for leaders: Managing innovation

Leaders play a vital role in creating conditions where free thought and imaginative thinking is possible.

People feel valued and motivated when they’re encouraged to think outside the box and share their ideas. Companies know they need these fresh ideas to compete. But they don’t always know the best way to foster a culture of innovation.

How leaders communicate, manage, speak and act is at the heart of every organisation, ensuring that staff are motivated and empowered to succeed. The atmosphere in the workplace is directly related to the ability to solve problems.

In this workshop, you gain a deep understanding of how to activate innovative thinking and identify obstacles that get in the way. You learn how to encourage everyone to seek solutions rather than problems, by freeing their creativity and creating a space where free-thinking can thrive.

Creating the right conditions for innovation is no small task. I can show you the ways and means to get there.

  • Working methods that inspire innovation
