Michael recently conducted research comparing senior team leaders who fostered innovation versus those that did not. While both groups invited dissent, the innovative leaders went further. Beyond just asking for differences, they facilitated healthy, constructive debate that worked through these differences. These leaders did not avoid conflict – they wanted it. The research supports what Harvard researchers have also recently found - that to create sustainable innovation, team leaders must create an environment that supports innovation. I also found that on average, women leaders are perceived to be better at creating an environment that supports and sustains innovation. In particular, women are seen as more likely to create a process for including and supporting the expression of different points of view. This webinar will describe the precise behaviors team leaders exhibited that made significantly more innovative than team leaders who did not use these behaviors.
