Creative Leadership, Leadership by Design

About this video


Creative Leadership is an inclusive design approach to leadership. It is not a leadership strategy. It’s a transformational process in which individuals tap into innate creativity and the potential to lead themselves and others towards fulfilling the goals and vision of their organization or projects. At the heart of the Creative Leadership model are three leadership values that apply to everyone: empathy; the hallmark of a 21st century leader; creativity, an innate ability to develop solutions; and clarity, the needed to balance and activate empathy.

This webinar is for people across all design disciplines and at all points of their leadership journey: those in leadership, aspiring leaders and those who were never encouraged to be leaders (the largest category of all). It has been embraced by leaders across creative industries, technology companies, and academics.

Within the webinar, attendees will be guided on how the Creative Leadership attributes, framework and tools can empower them, regardless of their design discipline or leadership level, with capacities and capabilities to face the relentless disruption, volatility, complexity, ambiguity of new business, social and global realities.
