MASTERS SERIES: Disruptive Thinking: Fostering a Culture of Game-Changing Leadership

SHRM 2015 Annual Conference

To compete today in a fast-changing world, businesses need a steady stream of disruptive strategies and unexpected solutions to stay ahead of the game—solutions that revive stagnant markets or completely reinvent the competitive dynamics of an industry. Disruptive Thinking is about fostering a culture of innovation leadership that provides the framework and motivation to generate those strategies and execute those solutions. It is an essential skill for any business leader, from a small start-up to a global corporation, with the desire to transform organizational processes and behaviors, and ask, "Why hadn’t we ever thought about our business and culture this way before?"
