Program Overview

Organizational Creativity is a competitive edge for businesses that seek to develop new markets, disrupt existing ones, and deliver out-of-the-box solutions to persistent challenges.  Many organizations are quick to adopt tools for “managing” Innovation as a process.  Yet Innovation is incomplete without Creativity. Indeed, Innovation is the OUTPUT of Creativity. It is the visible outcome of the exceptional talent, culture and leadership of Creative Organizations.

 

This is why “Creativity” is now the most in-demand soft skill on LinkedIn as companies race to acquire top creative talent.  This growing demand for “Creativity Inside” yields new challenges for business leaders who must cope with the powerful yet disruptive nature of creative people.

 

The Foundations of Creative Leadership Program will give leaders the knowledge, skills and insights that will help them design organizations, business models and company cultures that attract, nurture and retain the very best creative talent who in turn are the lifeblood of game changing innovation.
