Leading Innovation

Course Description

This course digs into the difference between leading innovation and managing routine work and reviews the hallmarks of skilled leaders with a special focus on staying in tune with the people you lead.

Learn How To

Learn the difference between routine and innovative work, the importance of having a place to fail and why killing good ideas is sometimes necessary.

Gain an understanding of creative processes and understand why creative work must be managed differently.

Understand how self-fulfilling prophecies, money as a motivator, intrinsic rewards, stand-up meetings and fostering constructive conflict can improve or hinder team performance.

Reconsider traditional notions of leadership and discover the leader’s role in being assertive, celebrating small wins, and supporting team members.

Explore the traps that often prohibit implementation.
