Innovative Leadership Workbook for Executives

by Maureen Metcalf, Mark Palmer

Book Cover: Innovative Leadership Workbook for Executives

How to lead and where to innovate? What is the role of leadership in a time of looming uncertainty? How will companies innovate to overcome challenges that are largely unprecedented? In a new climate of business, what is the formula for creating success in both areas? This workbook is designed to help answer those questions and help you to perform the critical self-evaluation needed to refine your own leadership skills. It is fundamentally about leadership, yet equally an account of applying innovation. Leadership needs innovation the way innovation demands leadership; by marrying them we can improve our capacity for growth. Approaches to both are explored by providing exercises designed to enhance your leadership awareness and skills. Even so, meaningful advancement in either area must ultimately originate from you. In other words, becoming a better leader and optimizing innovation jointly hinge on your ability to authentically examine your own inner makeup, which will allow you to make tangibly favorable changes.
