Leadership is about creating opportunities for teams, functions, organisations, and even eco-systems of organisations, to catalyse innovation at all levels. The only way to shape more purposeful, meaningful and successful futures, is to innovate our way there. This pioneering book turns our understanding of innovation on its head. It explores how innovation is actually a 'frequency', not a business-led process. How we think, relate, learn and organise either moves us towards this frequency or away from it. It's time for leaders to move to a multi-dimensional view of innovation, where creative breakthrough is evoked by design. Rewriting the rules of innovation, each chapter reveals a different part of the puzzle, giving the reader a rich tapestry of new insights to re-order and re-pattern what leadership in today's world can achieve.
