Programme overview

Masterclass Series
Leading Innovation through empathetic, inclusive and collaborative practices.

Why a Leading People Innovation series?
Innovation is the currency of the future. It can help organisations stay agile, take
risks and maintain competitive advantage. A culture of innovation is one where
fresh perspective is encouraged, where it is permitted to challenge the status quo
and where new insights are celebrated and rewarded. Innovation processes are
most effective when carried out by remaining competitive in a post-pandemic
world. This programme supports people managers to lay the foundations of an
innovation culture within their organisations.

Innovation can be messy and can require a degree of comfort with ambiguity.
There are tools, processes and frameworks to guide us, but the most important
element of any innovation is the people that drive it. Innovation comes about
through the cross fertilisation of disciplines, talent and experience. This
environment should be conducive to teams synthesizing diverse and sometimes
competing ideas and articulating these in engaging and meaningful ways. On this
programme, leaders will learn to create the environment for this to happen in a
productive and positive manner.

Who is this series for?
This programme is designed for mid-senior leaders who have an ambition or
remit to become innovation ambassadors within their organisation. It is
particularly suited to those wishing to provide space for new ideas through
empathetic, inclusive and collaborative leadership practices. The programme
does not assume any prior knowledge or training in the subject areas.
How is this series unique?

This programme recognises that Innovation is not just about the tools and
processes, it focuses on people, talent, and it starts with you.
There is a maximum of 20 places.
