CREATIVE AND INNOVATIVE LEADERSHIP - LEADERSHIP COMPONENT #3
Creative and Innovative Leadership has been at the head of many CEO's key to competitive advantage for many years if you believe the surveys of many consulting companies who specialise in innovation like IBM and Fujitsu.
The truth is many CEOs talk creativity and innovation, though don't walk it.
The innovations usually come from the lower levels of bsiness in a large proportion of business and this needs to be encouraged - significantly as does the need for collaboration.
I know this personally as founder of Total Executive.
For many years I have been involved in the creativity and innovation industry as one of Australia's leading publishers of innovation, CEO of the Creative Leadership Forum and my association with most innovation groups including Australian Innovation and their annual festival.
Creativity, Innovation and Collaboration are also heading up the list of importance for future leadership.
