Leadership that makes people and ideas grow.
In organisations today, work is no longer linear and predictable. Often it is dominated by rapid and disruptive change. Teams are more diverse and consist of people with different skill sets. Complexity and uncertainty are a reality for many leaders.
This calls for a new and different type of leadership. A leadership where you lead and motivate your team to navigate and thrive in constantly changing environments. And a leadership that fosters co-creation, continuous learning and commitment. The creative leader understands the difference between “me” and “we”. The creative leader is able to shift focus from instruction to inspiration, and from ordinary to extraordinary.
The Kaospilot Creative Leadership program is divided into three modules of three days each. Together, the full program gives you the tools and mindset to lead creative teams in a way where they will learn and create together on a higher level. The program enables its participants to foster powerful creative processes to build the collective capacity of your team.
In three inspiring modules you will learn how to lead teams to create extraordinary and meaningful outcomes. You get the opportunity to practice your creative leadership and not just talk about it, and apply the skills directly into your organisation.
Each module builds on the previous one and can only be attended in consecutive order.
Module 1 – The Creative Foundation: It Starts With You
The first module aims to provide you with an understanding of creative collaboration as a space for human interaction. Through the elimination of formal roles and hierarchies this module explores trust and commitment in a team. You will develop a stronger awareness of your personal impact through authentic and clear communication. The module provides an understanding of the mindset and skills required of a creative leader working in dynamic and explorative processes.
Module 2 – The Creative Team: From Me to We
The second module provides you with an understanding of how to create alignment, commitment, and direction within a team. The course challenges the creative leader to provide a creative edge and become a source of inspiration. You learn how to create a powerful frame that allows for unique contributions from your team members.
Module 3 – The Creative Outcome: Heading for Creative Breakthroughs
The third module helps you integrate the different elements of creative leadership in your leadership practice. This module is about developing an overview of all the phases in the creative process. It enables the participant to lead teams to extraordinary outcomes. The module explores different shapes of the leader which can build momentum in the creative process and secure results in situations with tight deadlines.

“With more than 25 years of experience as an officer I pride myself with being an experienced leader. But the course leaders David and Paul proved to me that it is never too late to learn. With a unique teaching style combining theory with exercises they very convincingly demonstrated how you as a leader can stimulate creativity. How ideas flow better when you are not only trying to focus on the result, but rather being in the present. I have used some of the methods in my division which is responsible for advanced officers’ training. It has been quite interesting to see how you as a leader can create a framework for creativity and development.”
Lennie Fredskov Hansen, Brigadier General and Danish Defence Attaché in Moscow
