Learn how creative leadership can unlock your potential for innovation based on new research from the Royal College of Art.

Creative Leadership is not a typical leadership strategy.

At the heart of our model are three leadership values that apply to everyone:

  • Empathy is the hallmark of a 21st century leader (widely spoken about by Forbes, Harvard Business Review and others)
  • Creativity is an innate ability to develop solutions (this course is delivered by creatives with international profiles)
  • Clarity is needed to balance and activate empathy (this is often undervalued, but we will give you a grounding in this

The Creative Leadership short course was pioneered by Rama Gheerawo, Director of the Helen Hamlyn Centre for Design, to address the need for new models of leadership across job roles, organisational departments and industry domains.
