Cultivate a Leading Edge Organization
Great leaders must constantly improve the way they relate to and interact with their people. There is an unmet need for well-trained leaders to unleash the innovative spirit and embrace a culture that innovates. From new markets to mature markets and across every industry, innovation plays a critical role in an organization’s success.
In this program, you will be challenged to take an introspective look at your own leadership style, values, and impact - and how to create an innovation mindset and culture. Many companies focus on streamlining and cost-cutting to achieve short-term earnings growth. Winning managers, though, are always seeking new ways to create value by launching new products and services, entering new markets, or rethinking established processes.
