Build a Culture of Innovation & Creativity
As priorities shift towards building a more sustainable future, innovation is the key to bridging the gap between where we are today and where we need to be tomorrow.
But many people ignore innovation because they don’t understand how it applies to them.
Most think of Innovation as “External Innovation”, the commercialisation of ideas into products and services for sale – which isn’t applicable to a lot of people. What we really need is “Internal Innovation”, the application of human creativity to solve problems.
Through these lenses, innovation is relevant to everyone and bridging The Innovation Gap is crucial for Transformative Leaders who want to reap the full benefits of being an innovative organisation.
Heart Centered Innovation (TM) is a powerful, easy-to-implement framework that addresses The Innovation Gap, allowing Leaders to build adaptive, innovative teams that accelerate ESG initiatives and solve other top priorities challenges.
