For many years people have believed that innovation is about by being open and taking risks. Risk takers like Steve Jobs have been venerated for their innovation accomplishments, and cutting edge companies like Google appear to be leading in the ‘innovation race’ due to their ‘open’ strategies.
Yet Gaia Grant's research from interviews with more than 70 global innovation leaders and surveys with more than 1,000 – along with our international consulting work with leading innovative companies over 30 years – has revealed that most leaders and organisations today have only half the story right. Few are set up for long term survival.
This session is based on Gaia’s recent book The Innovation Race: How to change a culture to change the game and identifies the unlikely paradoxical elements needed to be ‘fit for the future’. It includes an interactive game board exercise with a global challenge and connected case studies to identify the principles for sustainable innovation.
Through the session Gaia reveals her unique research findings on how to fuel innovation through successfully and dives deeper into the 4 key innovation ‘Paradox Pairings’ and the ‘Innovation Change Leader (iCLi) Profiling tool. This session can also be delivered as business facilitation - for a live group of leaders needing to explore these issues in real time.
