Leadership and Innovation: Developing New Models of Leadership

Today’s leaders face many unique pressures to refocus their organizations in response to economic, political, social and technological challenges. Current models of leadership may not be serving these organizations effectively. While innovation is a widely accepted ingredient for sustained success for all organizations (both public and private), many leaders are unable to effectively infuse innovation into their portfolios. Additionally, while managing change is seen as an important leadership challenge, many leaders do not recognize that it is a contact sport requiring a healthy dose of courage, compassion, risk taking and keen survival skills. This program is based on research of leadership and innovation and provides you with the knowledge necessary to reframe your leadership philosophy in ways that facilitate innovation, resilience and sustained success both personally and professionally. Class meets 9/12, 9/26, 10/10, 10/24, 11/7, 11/21.
