What can you expect to gain from this series? Our goal is to establish a conversation that moves beyond the philosophical level of innovation and creativity. Creative Leadership competencies are mandatory if you want to create the conditions for innovation and creative thinking. These skills are soft in nature; they’re often comprehended best via the stories of leaders fighting the good fight on the frontlines. By sharing the wisdom of successful creative leaders we hope to inspire you to become better stewards of your company’s greatest asset: employee creativity!
What is Creative Leadership? Warren Bennis said, “There are two ways of being creative. One can sing or dance. Or one can create the conditions in which singers and dancers flourish.” Creative Leadership is all about creating the conditions for others to creatively flourish. The challenge for today’s executive is that they’re used to outsourcing creative endeavors to external agencies. That’s why we’re committed to tackling this topic—to inspire all leaders to create the conditions for a creative culture and to avoid bad behaviors that send creativity dashing away for shelter.
