PRO EMPLOYER - How to be an innovative leader?

Updated: Mar 15

Many organizations would like their leaders to create more innovative teams. But how exactly should they do this? If you ask highly innovative leaders what makes them effective, you are apt to hear, "Well, I don't know. I haven't thought about it." Or they will make something up that sounds compelling. But the matter is that people who excel at something aren't usually very good at pinpointing exactly what accounts for their skill.

If you want to become an innovative leader and apply the concepts of this leadership style to the team you manage, you can start by following a few steps.

1. Be willing to learn new things.

All leaders, particularly innovative ones, must be lifelong learners. You must have appropriate knowledge and the drive to learn about fresh ideas in your field to move a project forward and come up with creative concepts.

2. Study innovative leaders

Learning from others can help you recognize and apply some of the critical characteristics of successful innovative leaders to your own leadership style. Consider what leaders who have demonstrated their ability to innovate did differently.

3. Look for ways to improve on existing ideas.

Rather than inventing entirely new concepts, some of the most inventive leaders have improved on what already exists. Innovation is not the same as invention; it introduces a new concept to the public in a unique way. In the preceding example, we learned that Steve Jobs did not develop the personal computer; instead, he altered how the product was presented to the end-user and spoke about it in a new way.

4. Set manageable goals

Setting goals is a crucial part of being a good leader. You may set goals for yourself and your team, but they should be specific, manageable, and simple to understand. When defining objectives, consider why the concept is essential to the company or the customer and what the goal is attempting to achieve.

5. Find your passion

Finding what you are passionate about might help you become more successful in your professional career. Passion is a significant motivator of success. If the only reason for completing your job is to get money, staying motivated is more challenging. It is easier to obtain more contentment when you are enthusiastic about what you do, which you can then pass on to people around you.

6. Be willing to adapt

Change is difficult for people in all professions since it requires changing one's perspective and adapting to new thinking and doing methods. However, it can help you achieve your objective of leading by innovation if you become more willing to adjust and even drive change ahead.

7. Be persistent

Persistence is another trait shared by some of history's most successful leaders. You may fail before you succeed, but your determination to keep going and try again will set you apart from the competition.
