In “the Innovation Maze”, Gijs Van Wulfen says there are two innovation sweet-spots, one more proactive, the other more crisis-driven. Where are you at?
Two Innovation Sweet Spots - Gijs Van Wulfen

We all know there are plenty of methods and claims from consultancies offering the latest golden bullet. It’s less well-known that credible research on creativity dates back to the mid-1950s. Your odds of success are raised with a holistic approach, aligned to strategy, properly resourced, supported by senior leaders with business accountability, and powered by a diverse and motivated mix of your own people, who are accountable for the outcomes.

The demands on your leaders have changed. They:

  • Deal with more ‘wicked’ problems – messy, multi-causal and with no single right solution. These require agreement between people on how to proceed.
  • Do not have all the answers, but have the role of enabling problem solving through their people.
  • Are expected to provide others with job and career development, through coaching, mentoring and other means of learning.
  • Work with a more diverse workforce in terms of gender, ethnicity, age, interests and expectations.

Our approach

We help your leaders to:

  • Develop a meaningful purpose that attracts people to the work itself.
  • Use their power in a mature way, connecting others to people and information, and acting as a conduit to help others feel more powerful, in service of the work. 
  • Develop a coaching style of leading others.
  • Learn design-thinking approaches that raise others’ motivation levels and develop novel ideas.
  • Improve their climate for innovation using the Situational Outlook Questionnaire®.
