Creative Leadership – The Virtual Journey
Leadership that makes people and ideas grow
Due to the unfortunate circumstances of the current pandemic, we now offer our highly recognized and popular Creative Leadership program as an online course. We call it Creative Leadership – The Virtual Journey.
Leadership can make a huge difference between a company’s success or failure as well as employees well-being and job satisfaction. Make sure you are prepared with our online Creative Leadership training program.
All sessions, except Module 3, are online and will happen via Zoom. However, there are several advantages associated with online training programs for those who are not able to physically travel to off-site workshops. For instance, online training programs tend to be more cost-effective due to the lack of costs to travel, parking, food etc. Also, a well-thought-out and well-implemented online course is just as captivating, rewarding, and developing as an offline course.
Therefore, with our online Creative Leadership program, you will experience the same high-quality education as if you were attending it physically.
You will learn how to lead and motivate your team to navigate and thrive in constantly changing environments and how to nurture and foster creativity within your organisation.
Today, working in organisations, private companies and public institutions is complex and constantly changing. It is dominated by rapid and disruptive change. This calls for leaders who can navigate and lead in such environments, but also motivate and inspire employees and creative teams to thrive.
Therefore, a new and different type of leadership is needed in today’s world and for the future. A leadership that fosters co-creation, continuous learning, curiosity, and commitment. A well-educated creative leader understands the difference between “me” and “we” and can shift focus from instruction to inspiration and motivation, and from ordinary to extraordinary.
During this three-day online course, divided into three modules, you will be given the tools, techniques, methodologies, and mindset required to lead a creative organisation and creative team. You will learn to create together on a higher level and be able to foster and nurture powerful creative processes to build collective capacity of your team.
In three inspiring and captivating modules, spread across three days, you will learn how to lead teams to create meaningful and purposeful outcomes. You will develop your leadership skills and strategies and explore how effective and creative leadership can help increase the innovation capacity in your organisation or team.
