Overview

Oct 09, 2014

New York City, USA

This Dialogue Event will be hosted by Hess and will be held at Hess' offices in New York City. Sponsor companies may send 2 participants. Sponsor business schools may send 1 participant.

Great leaders of innovation don’t fit the conventional mold of “good” leadership. They’re not visionaries who set direction and inspire others to follow. Instead, they create the context in which others are both willing and able to innovate. As one leader said, “My job is to set the stage, not to perform on it.” This is the key insight gleaned by the authors of Collective Genius who, led by Harvard leadership scholar Linda Hill, spent a decade studying leaders of innovative firms in the US, Europe, India, and Asia, including such companies as Pixar, Google, Volkswagen, HCL Technologies, IBM, and the Sungjoo Group. Collective Genius reveals how they think and what they do to unleash and then harness the “collective genius” of those they lead.

Learning Objectives

  • During this ICEDR Dialogue Event, Linda Hill will discuss the findings from her recent book: Collective Genius
  • You will understand what leaders of innovation really do and discuss the implications for HR executives.
  • This will be a 2 hour deep dive intensive session that will allow you to network with your peers as well.
