Training Creative Leadership
If an organisation wants to be more creative, it is necessary to invest in the individual creativity of its employees, the creative climate and of course in the leaders who need to manage that creativity. How do you actually arrange for that atmosphere in which your team can boost its creativity? And how do you prevent that the ideas are going in all directions except the correct one?
