LEADERSHIP TEAM ENGAGEMENT

LEAD : INNOVATION

Take a leadership journey together to unleash and utilise the powerful diversity your team offers.

"Creativity is thinking up new things.

Innovation is doing new things."

Theodore Levitt

The future really is faster than you think. The only thing you can be sure of is it cannot be known and it will be different to the way you imagine it. The best way to work with the future is to create it and to do this, you need work together as a cohesive leadership team and utilise the collective diversity you bring to the table.

Today, leaders around the world recognise the urgent need to build a sustainable culture of experimentation and innovation. To shift their organisational mindset from one of short-term tactical thinking and survival to thriving through open, collaborative, agile thought and action.

We need to reframe our thinking around innovation!

We often associate innovation with technology, the sciences or engineering. In reality, innovation is the practical implementation of incremental, disruptive or radical ideas and experiments that result in a new or changed entity (think of your organisation and how you operate), new or improved goods, services or methods that create tangible value for your organisation.

At the heart of this is your leadership team.

Leading and driving experimentation and transformation, which results in useful innovations starts at the top. It requires a very different type of Agile Thinking and Creative Collaboration. Your team's diverse disciplines, perspectives, backgrounds and lived experiences need to work together to navigate ambiguity, unearth bold ideas and embrace new ways of working. 

Your collective ability to think, work and lead in this way dictates your culture and your organisations' ability to be innovative.

Lead : Innovation. In this groundbreaking leadership team engagement, we use behavioural science-based assessments, models and tools as a foundation, to give you a clear understanding of your team's inherent strengths and potential blind spots across the innovation cycle.

LEAD : INNOVATION

This engagement is designed for executive and c-suite leadership teams.

We use Lumina Learning's Agile Thinking and Innovation behavioural science-based models to give you instant insight into where you are right now and the developmental tools to support you well into the future. 

Using Team Coaching and Facilitation methodologies, we then take your leadership team through a process of developing and using your collective thinking and capabilities across the innovation cycle. We support you to build a cohesive leadership team and a thriving culture of experimentation, specifically suited to your business and the context in which you operate. 

This programme was originally developed for the Kuwaiti Foundation for the Advancement of Science or KFAS (read the Case Study), now re-designed for virtual engagements.

the ENGAGEMENT

CONSULTING PRE-WORK

We get deeply curious, ask loads of questions, listen hard, get clear on your purpose and establish measurable outcomes before the engagement starts.

ASSESSMENTS & One-2-one feedback

Your team will each be sent a link to the award-winning Lumina Spark Portrait, which takes approximately twenty-minutes to complete online. This delivers the Individual, Team, Agile Thinking and Innovation Reporting, which forms the foundation of this engagement.

  • Each team member will receive a full Report and Personalised Workbook followed by a sixty-minute one-to-one feedback Coaching Session.
This gives you invaluable insight into your dynamic personality under different circumstances. Increase your self-awareness, reveal hidden potential and discover how to cope better under pressure. You'll also discover practical actions for improved communication, collaboration and leadership.

TWO TEAM SESSIONS

Having gained the foundation of self-knowledge, we come together for two fully interactive three-hour virtual sessions over the course of two weeks to:

  • Give you insight into the powerful diversity within your team, valuing each other's differences, reducing the barriers between you and enabling more authentic connections.
  • Develop your mental models including Agile Thinking, Futures Thinking and Innovative Thought & Action to enable you to approach innovation from bigger, broader systems perspective.
  • Using our diagnostics, tools and models, fully expand on how you operate across the innovation cycle and how best to collaborate to unlock your team’s ability to generate new ideas, experiment and reach better solutions.
  • Establish the conditions your team needs to foster a thriving culture of experimentation and innovation.
  • Launch your innovation projects.

SIX TEAM MEETINGS

We meet online for 90-minutes on a monthly basis over the course of six months to support you across your innovation projects.

We act as thought-partners and devil's advocates to challenge your collective thinking, help you to broaden your perspectives and develop the ability to think about the future from a wider angle. You will also:

  • Strengthen and deepen open collaboration with your team members and create the conditions for a thriving culture of experimentation and innovative thought and action. 
  • Gain fresh insights, critical thinking and the collective wisdom of your peers.
