Join us for the next Talks@Algebra. In this new 8th edition of Talks, we are proud to welcome our guest speaker Dr. Bruce Watley, a lecturer at our e-Leadership MBA and an assistant professor at the University of Sioux Falls, U.S.A.
How many times have you ever been told or even heard some say “We just need to be more innovative?” Innovation is one of the least understood aspects of human behavior at work but yet it is vital to sustain the organizational growth. In a recent research study, 70% of executives believed a person’s ability to innovate significantly contributed to organizational growth, however, 65% of these same individuals had very little confidence in their own abilities to stimulate innovation within an organization. This presentation will give attendees practical advice, frameworks, and tools that can be used to help foster a culture of sustained innovation within their own organization.
