The fact that we live in an increasingly complex world is undeniable. What is shocking is that most business leaders, according to a global study conducted by IBM, are not confident that they have the skills to lead in times of such unprecedented change. The same 1500-plus executives said creativity skills would be most useful to them as leaders over the next five years. Numerous other reports concur. Creativity and creative thinking are now considered to be core leadership skills. We will examine the important connection between creativity and leadership, as well as examine how well you employ your creative thinking skills in leadership situations. You will:
• Learn about the link between creativity and leadership.
• Recognize how creativity development simultaneously contributes to leadership effectiveness.
• Explore the specific skills, attitudes and behaviors that contribute to creative leadership.
• Analyze how Creative Problem Solving and your own CPS skills play a role in contributing to leadership effectiveness in today’s fast-changing world.
