Linda A. Hill, Wallace Brett Donham Professor of Business Administration and Faculty Chair of Leading and Building a Culture of Innovation, comments, “Most leaders I meet tell me they are worried that their organizations can’t innovate enough. And it’s no wonder why: leading innovation is hard, emotionally taxing work, even for the best of leaders. We designed this program to help leaders learn how to unleash the talents of their organization and harness them into innovative solutions—not just once, but time and time again.”
