Innovation Leadership & Intrapreneurship
Unlock the mindset of innovation
within your organization

While many programs train participants on how to become entrepreneurs, very few teach how to innovate within the context of a business organization. Why? Because despite what the management says, the culture of your organization might not be ready to welcome innovation. Being an intrapreneur requires – beyond creativity – courage, diplomatic skills, and the ability to engage the entire organization in your vision

“I learned the key traits of innovation leadership and that you don't need to have all of them - it is the team's unique combination that makes innovation.”

“After the program I had to shift gear, embrace ambiguity and face my fears - which I didn't know I had. Love the rapid, learning-by-doing approach and finding out about the attributes of innovation leaders. It's all in the attitude, and practice!”
