About this event

About this virtual workshop

Leadership is not just a title, it is an attribute and an activity. This webinar will explain the leaders role as an innovator and in developing solutions to complex problems. Leaders challenge the status quo, are driven by curiosity and courage, and they inspire and engage people. Leaders understand an organization’s behaviours, recognizing key behaviours and engaging people to develop solutions. They may not directly involve in creativity, but they should ensure strategy flows. In the creative phase, leaders should observe, learn, and understand even if they don’t feel creative. However, they must involve directly in the execution of solutions.

He is Head of Delegation for the Canadian Committee to ISO/TC279 on Innovation Management & Chair of the ASQ Innovation Think Tank. Peter emphasizes the importance of developing an innovative culture, which leads to innovation of practices, business model, and products.
