Leading Deliberate Creative Teams

Innovation is critical for the long-term success of organizations. Organizations who are unable or unwilling to innovate will become irrelevant and slowly wither away. Teams are the #1 source of innovation in organizations. When teams can be creative, the results can drive innovative change. However, teams are complex.  Many teams maintain the status quo and don’t have the skills to actually innovate. They fumble because of unclear purpose, poor team dynamics, or lack of understanding the creative process. Learn how leaders can help drive innovation within organizations by focusing on developing deliberate creative teams. Educational outcomes:
  • Learn recent research identifying three components all teams need in order to be creative.
  • Gain practical strategies and simple changes you can make to help your team be more creative together.
Ideal for:
  • Leaders who want to develop their teams to be more innovative
  • Teams who want to be creative/innovative, but don’t know how
  • Organizations ready to maximize the creative potential of their teams
