How to Lead Innovation: Centering Organizations around Today’s Most Essential Quality

Effectively leading innovation starts with understanding your organization’s current ability and willingness to innovate.

All leaders, regardless of location, size of business or the industry in which they operate, must understand how to unlock the best ideas and potential of their people, or risk being left behind. Thinking through several fundamental questions can provide a framework for CEOs and boards to enable sustainable innovation across the organization:

  • How is your organization thinking about innovation? Is it something you are trying to instill in the culture?
  • How are your leaders changing their approach to adjust to the impact of an increasingly digital world?
  • Do you have leaders who are able to build teams/organizations with the agility to deal with rapid change and constant uncertainty?
  • How are leaders in your organization shifting from a cost control mindset to growth mode?

We have partnered with Harvard Business School Professor Linda Hill and her company, Paradox Strategies, to help leaders, teams, and organizations establish cultures that will enable ongoing, successful innovation. 

Watch the conversation between Egon Zehnder’s Greig Schneider and Linda Hill, Harvard Business School professor and co-founder of Paradox Strategies, on how innovation unfolds in the workplace. Linda’s research from her book Collective Genius shows that innovation tends not to come from a single visionary genius, but from environments where leaders create a context that enables teams to surface, debate, refine and combine ideas - ultimately creating solutions that no single individual could have envisioned.
