5 Ways Leaders Enable Innovation In Their Teams | Leading the Innovative Organization | Scoop.it
Leaders are accountable to assemble teams and lead them to optimal performance outcomes. An effective leader recognizes the importance of embracing differences in people and knows how to connect the dots amongst those differences to get the best outcomes from the team.

Leaders must foster a commitment from the team to embrace an innovation mindset where each employee learns to apply the differences that exist in one another for their own success and that of the organization. Here are 5 immediate things leaders can do with their teams to foster an environment of innovation and initiative. They apply whether you are forming a new team or revamping an existing one.

Nancy J. Herr's curator insight, March 21, 2014 8:19 PM

There are lots of things you can do with your staff that are still productive that can help incubate great ideas. Sharing sessions for lessons, technology, a break for some fellowship with a snack, and so on.  Just keep in mind that everything doesn't have to be finished right now; we can return to it and get better ideas. 

John Michel's curator insight, March 21, 2014 10:13 PM

According to HBR.org, a team of researchers led by Sophie Ellwood at the University of Sydney recently found evidence that incubation--taking a break from a problem to focus on something unrelated--can increase creativity.

JASON CAVNESS's curator insight, March 24, 2014 7:38 AM
