Leading Innovation through Collaboration


“Leading Innovation” is an interactive workshop that stretches a team’s creativity and increases their capacity to work together collaboratively. This workshop is designed to enhance individual and team innovation skills by helping them generate fresh ideas and apply them to their organizational setting.

This leadership development course blends self-reflection and small group engagement. Participants will experience and learn from group dynamics, practice asking meaningful questions, and generating an atmosphere of friendly cooperation and collaboration.
