In order to stay relevant today, companies must constantly evolve, change and innovate. According to a SHRM study about 94% of business leaders say that innovation is key to success and adapting to a changing business environment is driven by leadership. However, these same leaders are only 14% confident about their organizations' ability to innovate and compete effectively in an ever evolving competitive market. Ensure that your organization is innovating to continue your growth and prosperity.

  Enabling Innovation


What is innovation? To innovate is to introduce something new; make changes in anything that is an established patterns. It begins with those people who touch the business across all functional and departmental areas.  Creativity and new thinking is not dependent on the participation of high-ranking executives - but on any employee that is a student of the business, knows their customers and their specific needs. Those who recognize and react to changes, take the time to analyze their competitors and the evolution of industries, brands and the emerging role of technology. Innovators are those who can see, sow, grow and share opportunities.


The best leaders know that innovation must come from multiple sources, both internally and externally and from every level of the organization. When people and their different points of view and experiences converge, they create new ideas that individuals could not have done or found alone.


For teams to innovate, leaders must

 challenge each team member to think more critically and see through a lens of continuous improvement.  Looking through this lens requires the mindset of a "courageous enabler" - one who takes charge and embraces the role of a change agent in support of constructive disruption that ultimately makes things operate better and improves performance.
