This is a nice article on the importance of developing top leaders to improve innovation. We agree that it is so critical, but the question is: How do you get there? Better team communication.
We have found in our work with top management teams that so much of leadership development includes fostering better team communication. Once your team learns how to communicate better, they trust each other more and are more willing to be more innovative–as a team. One of the first ways to communicate better is to learn how to listen to each other. So many top leaders are focused on telling their own point of view that they don’t stop to listen to what their peers are saying to them to know how they can help each other.
Does your company encourage effective team communication? It fosters trust and collaboration, which produces strong results for the organization.
