Innovative leaders envision the future trends in business, technology, and society, explore growth opportunities, accelerate collective performance, and advance human society.

Leadership is one's ability to paint a vivid picture, a vision of a future state and motivate others to achieve it. Innovative leadership indicates open mindedness to embrace unconventional thoughts and fresh ideas, seeks new knowledge or experience. 

It would be the adventure to explore different paths to experiment with better ways to lead boldly, unlock collective potential, and accelerate societal progress. Leadership has to continue growing organically and keep evolving to advance human society.

Initiate interdisciplinary leadership to bridge the differences and explore better ways to lead transformatively: Nowadays, the horizontal departmental, industrial, geographical boundaries start blurring out; and vertical boundaries are more permeable, it usually streamlines information flow and makes easier idea access from people anywhere in the organization. Being boundaryless suggests a genuine sense of exploration. People begin to work with the joint effort for achieving common goals, accelerate their potential via connecting-collecting-collaborating- innovating, etc. The “boundaryless” organizations build institutional platforms across the business ecosystem for allowing information permeation, building long-term cross-boundary business relationships, evolving customers and business partners to brainstorm, co-solve problems effectively.

Such a dynamic, boundaryless ecosystem explicitly seeks to create an innovative working environment in which people can grow, business management focuses on long-term perspectives, dynamic resource alignment, boundaryless collaboration. Interdisciplinary leadership is in demand to be able to share advanced viewpoints, question, reason and focus, create shared vision and common-understood goals, facilitate inclusive communication, appreciate varieties of cultures, worldwide knowledge, multifaceted values, and lead collective progress cross-culturally.

Innovate, coach to cultivate a culture of learning agility, people-centric problem-solving: Nowadays the perspective of change unfolds into a multi-dimensionally business continuum, people are the center of the business. One of the key determinants of whether an organization can move up to the next cycle of corporate growth or progressive change is the development level of the people professionally. Organizations should set the coach style of leadership tone to encourage people to think independently, keep learning agile, and create an environment that encourages dissent and candor, change and innovation. It’s more impactful to ask the coaches to feed in schemes to support organizational learning, and collaborative problem-solving.

Due to rapid change and knowledge abundance, leadership today becomes more balanced, inclusive, innovative, progressive, and harmonized. Creative disruption acts as a catalyst for business growth and innovation. The static knowledge could be outdated shortly, and often you need to continue to search for fresh, quality information for learning & relearning, decision-making, and problem-solving. Great leaders should be ideal mentors. By coach, you are showing that you value others, and in order to add value to others, you need to hold people in high regards, not only for who they are but for their innate potential. So collectively, people can accelerate future performance.

Inspire, interact, interpret, innovate, improve, exemplify, encourage, and orchestrate transformative change: The paradigm shifts from silo to holism; from local to globe; from inside-out operation driven to outside-in people centricity. In fact, business ecosystem orchestration is accelerated to the hyper-connected global world. So leaders need observing, encouraging, supporting, recognizing and rewarding, with influence essential to embrace the true color of their people and appreciate a versatile workforce.

Each person perceives the world differently and deals with emerging changes differently. Great leaders should be able to help people overcome their challenges; achieve their goals and objectives. Contemporary leaders with influential power and persuasive influence desire to listen to diverse viewpoints, discover connectivity and common ground from the difference, carry compelling conversations across business domains, understand people’s needs and wants, integrate their professional expertise with leadership competency to create a ripple effect and make a high societal impact.

Leadership innovation is a continuous practice based on clarified guiding principles and strong disciplines. Innovative leaders envision the future trends in business, technology, and society, explore growth opportunities, accelerate collective performance, and advance human society.
