  • Do you want to foster innovation in your organization, but you're not sure where to begin?
  • Would you like to better understand what motivates people to be more innovative?
  • Are you looking for practical tools and processes to help lead innovation?
  • Are you prepared to handle the risks that are involved with trying new things?


Fostering innovation requires two key things: an organizational culture that supports innovation and tools/processes that support innovation. Join Brenda Hough and Stephanie Gerding in this fast-paced and interactive webinar to explore how to be more creative and innovative yourself… and how to help others get in on the fun, too.

At the end of this one-hour webinar, participants will be able to:

  • List three potential innovation barriers and motivations
  • Cite examples of innovation
  • Describe techniques to foster a culture of innovation and experimentation
  • Recognize the importance of rapid iteration and documentation in learning from innovation
  • Use strategies to balance risk and innovation

Content in this session is based upon the Nexus LAB Leadership curriculum.
