Welcome to the first episode of The Seven C’s of Creative Leadership! We’re excited to kick off this nine-part series about what it really takes to lead innovation and foster a culture of creativity.
In this introductory episode, co-host Todd Schnick and I lay a foundation for the series. Specifically, we:
Define important terms: innovation, creativity, creative leadership.
Share the inspiration behind The Seven C’s of Creative Leadership.
Discuss why developing creative leadership competencies are so critical.
Provide an overview for each of the Seven C competencies: Communication, Curiosity, Creativity, Connecting, Culture, Change Management, and Courage.
The lack of creative-leadership abilities among corporate leaders represents the biggest leadership abyss in business today. We’re here to serve you by sharing critical skills and competencies that will unleash the creative potential of your employees.
Be sure to join us next Monday for Episode Two. We’ll welcome Perry Baldwin, COO of The Family Room, who will share his wisdom on how to use the power of communication to inspire people to think more creatively. In addition, Perry explains why objectives are so critical when leading productive conversations about your organization’s ideas.
