Description

Leading for Innovation and Creativity


There's never been a time when innovation in the public sector has been more urgently needed. As problems grow more complex, developing an innovation culture becomes increasingly important. There is a clear imperative to innovate in the public sector.


Do you have what it takes to inspire people to practice innovation? What kind of leadership is more likely to create an environment where innovation and creativity can flourish?


During this engaging and practical workshop we will explore and experiment together to:

  • surface leadership styles which encourage innovation and align with the #Leading GM expectations
  • learn how to build and maintain a talented, motivated team – building on the notion of intrinsic motivation
  • review latest thinking on how compassionate leadership stimulates innovation – unpacking and exploring the recent paper by Michael West – “Caring to Change”
  • explode the myth of creativity being an innate talent – creativity is a skill that can be learned, developed and applied
  • share creative thinking models and strategies that will challenge you and help you review existing perspectives and consider alternative solutions to “tricky issues”
  • apply a range of creativity tools and models to address current #leading GM tricky issues

Our teams will determine the success or failure of getting innovation to the heart of the next generation of public services - harnessing their motivation will be a critical component of a new model of public sector innovation. This workshop will help you focus on and equip you to make this happen as a GM Leader, and is open to any leader in GM.
