Collaborative Leadership – the foundation for creative and innovative business culture

collaborationCollaborative Leadership is increasingly important to the success of businesses and the careers of individuals. In an ever more connected world, where virtual teams and strategic alliances are becoming the norm and businesses are more global than ever before, collaborative leadership is increasingly becoming a more effective management model.

Currently there are new discoveries in brain functions and activities and in particular the link between creativity and innovation with brain stimulation from internal thoughts and external experiences.

I suggest collaborative leadership increases the individuals and collective brain stimulation and is therefore fostering a better creative and innovative business culture.

Strategic Idea Creation

Ideation is the creative process of generating, developing, and communicating new ideas, where an idea is understood as a basic element of thought that can be visual, concrete, or abstract. Ideation is all stages of a thought cycle, from incubation, to application and engagement. As such, it is an essential part of the design process, both in theory and practice.

Idea generation is the cornerstone of many organisations. As consultants in our various fields of expertise, we are expected to be knowledgeable of our respective industries and look for problems in those industries and propose ways to solve them. A single idea can propel a one man business into a multi-billion venture.
