Influential Negotiation

Creating a Culture for
Risk and Innovation

Program Description

Successful leaders of innovation establish a climate that encourages employees to be creative and to take risks. They commit to a culture that clearly communicates its support of individuals and teams who take intelligent risks and seek to innovate. In such cultures, wise risk decisions are celebrated, regardless of outcome, and learning from both failure and success is expected. Unfortunately, many leaders reward only final success or, worse, punish those who fall short because they moved beyond the boundaries of safe choices. Innovation leaders communicate expectations and design organizations that make continuous innovation the norm.
