Innovation Leadership

Innovation is what keeps organizations relevant and vibrant. Innovation is what sparks the existence of any great enterprise. Without great innovation leadership, organizations are at risk of becoming dangerously irrelevant.

Great leaders are proactive about raising the bar. They don’t wait for the world to act on them, they act to create conditions that position them to thrive. They also know that innovation is the best way to make improvements (including cost reductions) today and to prepare for tomorrow–while keeping remote workers engaged.

There are many ways to help create an organization that is Dangerously Innovative™ and always a step ahead of the competition. Below are some examples of services that can support all parts of an organization, whether for individual leaders, teams, or the broader enterprise.

  • Executive Innovation Advisory Services. Advisory services in the context of innovation support an executive “behind the scenes” —helping them to see all the opportunities for driving innovation within their organization, finding the fastest path to get there, and having a sounding board to validate or adjust thinking. This service is ideal for experienced senior leaders and executives.
  • Innovating Executive 1:1 Coaching. Innovating Executive 1:1 Coaching is direct, structured support for senior leaders and executives. Coaching to improve innovation capacity is one of the most valuable developmental goals a leader can choose. This is because (in addition to the huge potential for business results) innovation requires many supporting leadership behaviors like collaboration, listening, and strategic agility that get developed simultaneously. Innovating Executive 1:1 Coaching is appropriate for executives, senior leaders, and high-potential talent and is NOT limited to those in a technical leadership role.
  • Executive Innovation Sprint. A sprint experience guides a team though a full innovation cycle with the objective to drive innovation in specific strategic areas. The sprint in appropriate for an intact senior leadership team or for a senior leader and their team. The Executive Innovation Sprint will often follow or be combined with a Sentient Strategy® session.
  • Enterprise Innovation Programs. These custom programs are designed to support innovation broadly within an organization. Enterprise programs may be applied to the entire enterprise or to key divisions of an enterprise and may extend to open innovation with key suppliers and alliance partners.
