The Connected Leader

When working with leaders to help them become better connected, there are four principal domains in which we work. Each one of these is – quite naturally – connected to the others.

Four domains that may, at first glance, appear to be independent, but in fact influence one another profoundly. Push here and something happens over there. They are the component parts of a unified whole.

The secret of innovation? Look to the edges

We live in the age of disruption,where apparently left-field, unexpected solutions to problems we thought we had licked can creep up on big, established market leaders, to become noisy, irritating challengers.

To the outmanoeuvred, to the sluggish establishment, the struggle is knowing how to be different and how to change. It’s as if the innovators rewrote the rules of their sector and didn’t tell anyone. It’s like their upstart competitors really did uncover the secrets of alchemy or worked out how to speed up evolution.

Create a culture of innovation

You may have the budget, people and structure in place that you think you’ll need to support innovation, but if you don’t also have the right culture, you’ll struggle to get the results you want.

How do you get everyone in your business to be more innovative?

Developing innovation in your organisation

There are clear markers of an innovation culture. They include:

  • An appreciation of creativity.
  • A willingness to experiment.
  • The ability to make swift decisions once experimenting and testing is done.
  • A belief that everyone can contribute to changing the things that really matter.
  • A connectedness to the client who uses your products and services.

We can work with you to create this culture. How we do this will depend where you are now and what you want to achieve. We can help you explore and exploit ideas: these are very different, but equally important.

We can look at how you create processes that organise people for innovation, and how you use people to create those processes. We’ll look at the existing culture in your organisation: where do ideas come from, and what happens to them? Are people inspired to be creative and think from multiple perspectives?  Is there a central point for ideas and experiences, however tame or radical? How do you showcase new ideas, talent, and success?

There is no one perfect organisational structure, design or culture for innovation, but there are ways of organising that will work for you. We’ll help you find them.
