Creative Leadership is not a typical leadership strategy.

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

  • Creativity is an innate ability to develop solutions
  • Empathy is the hallmark of a 21st century leader
  • Clarity is an undervalued idea in the conversation.

This course will take you through these three leadership attributes showing how you can engage and upskill. It is for those in leadership, aspiring leaders, and those who were never encouraged to be leaders. Catalysing change can be external, but real change starts within. Creative Leadership is a transformational process that focuses on your individual growth. In turn, this can have a powerful effect on the organisation, team, or projects around you.

 Personal and organisational benefits:

  • the opportunity to develop and apply the core RCA Creative Leadership attributes and processes that activate and step beyond empathy
  • access to world-class expertise
  • strategies to cultivate your individual leadership profile using empathy, clarity and creativity
  • interaction and networking with peers from different backgrounds
  • joining a Creative Leaders Circle community of intent around 21st-century leadership
  • a certificate of attendance.
