Cultivating an Innovative Culture

How leaders can unlock workforce potential and create an environment for creativity

Competency models encourage employees to “think outside the box,” but what are the cultural forces and leadership behaviors that truly drive innovation? By enabling people to consider alternatives, be creative, and seek inventive solutions, innovative cultures achieve a leg-up on business results. This discussion will explore the influences that contribute to or undercut an organization’s efforts toward promoting innovative thinking in a psychologically safe environment.

Discussion topics:

  • What are the behaviors leaders must model to enable innovation in their organizations?
  • What organizational processes have to change or scale in order to encourage fail-forward risk-taking (e.g. governance, org structures, recognition, methodologies)?
  • Where are the “pockets” of innovation in an organization and what characteristics of these mini-cultures can be taken to the larger enterprise?
  • Is implementing dedicated innovation teams within the organization the right approach?

About the Results-Driven Innovation Roundtable Series:

This is our Spring 2019 executive roundtable series hosted in New York City.

Innovation is the result of how work gets done across all levels of an organization. Innovative organizations are known to celebrate informed risk-taking, enable employee engagement and trust in leadership, and work smarter to outperform the competition. This means empowering employees to productively disrupt business as usual.

This series helps leaders leverage their in-house talent in considering alternative solutions, seeking fresh perspectives, and questioning the current state. Discussions will focus on the value of divergent thinking up, down, and across levels of an organization; and the realities, pitfalls, and opportunities associated with employee innovation.

Join the Discussion

All sessions are open to executives and senior leaders to join in discussion with their peers. To protect the organic nature of this conversation, this event is not open to independent consultants, management consultants, or sales representatives.
