Ted: Linda Hill: How to manage for collective creativity

A fantastic Ted Talk combining ideas that sparked through a few books and courses I was lucky to enjoy already.  Managing for innovation is different from “visionary leadership” where the leader sets the vision and everybody is called to execute.

Leading innovation is creating a space where people are willing and able to do the hard work of innovative problem solving

Our role as leaders is to set the stage, not to perform on it…


Innovative companies allow arguments – it is beneficial in the process of innovation.

Hire people who argue with you

Experiments rather than pilots. The only objective of the experiment is to learn.  The pilot is a trial; if it did not go well, somebody is to blame.

Innovation takes a willage
