Accelerate Your Innovation Leadership: Webinar Recap
'Innovation' and 'Leadership' are two words that get used often - sometimes too often - on their own, but are rarely used together. Figuring out what Innovation Leadership looks like and how it's applied to leading teams into the future interested Jay Melone and Daniel Stillman so much that they decided to put together a 12-week accelerator course to address it.
In the course of the webinar, Daniel took us through how innovation can be articulated, defined, and visualized to build team alignment + commitment. One of the points he hit home for participants was that the definition of innovation changes depending on your context. This is why it's particularly important to take time on the front end of any project to set expectations and decide on a common definition for the scope of said project.
Jay then explored different leadership styles that work under varying levels of complexity + team ecosystems. Continuing with Daniel's thread about defining things up front, he implored participants to think about how they'd want to bring their leadership style to a group of people, and also how that team as a whole wants to lead (that could mean doing something like a team charter before kicking off).
Wanting to make the webinar an interactive one for participants, each presenter asked for examples of innovation and leadership types:
