Innovation is a skill that can be learned like any other skill.
The legendary chairman and CEO of Johnson & Johnson, Ralph Larson, often said: The biggest constraint on our growth is leadership. And, as many HR leaders know, it’s true. You have to constantly develop future leaders with the right skills. Otherwise, the company will become stagnant and fall behind.
It may sound counterintuitive to suggest innovation is a learned skill, but for thousands of years, innovators have used patterns in their inventions, usually without realizing it. Imagine if you had a way to apply those patterns in a systematic way to your important leadership issues. That’s what you want your participants to learn in your executive development programs, and Drew Boyd can show you how to teach them.
