Presented By: Michael Y. Brenner, Ed.D.
To succeed in today’s competitive business climate, innovation is essential. One of the key ingredients of an “innovation culture” is conscientious, disciplined, and purposeful actions from leaders who drive innovation throughout their organizations. But many leaders—even with good intentions—are ill-equipped to do so successfully.
This fascinating webinar will highlight the importance of innovation as a competitive advantage and explore leadership strategies for driving innovative thought and behavior. A strong case will be made for building a culture of innovation and what leaders must do to make innovation initiatives fruitful.
