Executive Leadership: Leading Innovation - Virtual Delivery

Go beyond brainstorming and discover how to properly lead all types of innovation using the right leadership skills and behaviours.

In today’s complex and competitive business environment, most companies rank innovation as one of their top strategic priorities. In a recent study conducted by the Boston Consulting Group, more than three quarters of business leaders surveyed ranked innovation as their top—or one of their top three—strategic priorities. The challenge is that many organizations struggle to truly innovate. Often they are restricted by a narrow definition of innovation or are limited by thinking of innovation relative to their industry or competitors.

This one-day workshop helps leaders properly implement or support real innovation.

Who should attend: 

Leaders at all levels including vice-presidents, directors, managers and supervisors.

Students who have completed the Executive Leadership Core Certificate and complete at least three days of Executive Leadership elective courses will earn the Executive Leadership Associate Certificate.

If you are interested in developing your skills as a leader but do not need a Certificate, you can take the electives independently and advance your opportunities in your organization.

Offered in partnership with Global Knowledge.
