Creative thinking and innovative leadership are competencies which are widely recognized as key success drivers for organizations and individuals. Interestingly, they are competencies which, given the right nurturing environment, can be developed and harnessed by anyone in any organization.
In this course we examine the conditions necessary to build such an environment. Our aim is to provide participants with an overview of creativity, and to examine leadership theories and approaches that foster innovation, emphasizing situational leadership. The course also addresses the role of the leader as delegator and change agent.
The course features the use of group activities, psychometrics and team exercises. Case studies followed by group debriefs are also used.
Supervisors, managers, team and project leaders, and all individuals
who need to adopt a more creative approach at work, whether to solve
problems, come up with new initiatives or initiate and introduce
changes. The course will also benefit anyone interested in recognizing
and developing their own or a group's creative potential.
