"Supporting an inclusive community of innovation for all."
It’s crystal clear that 2020 has brought us an unprecedented global challenge with the outbreak of Covid-19.
We observe significant changes in world economics, industry dynamics and customer’s behaviour.
“Never waste a good crisis.” Winston Churchill
How do we address such a global challenge? What is the direct impact for our business and its pipeline? Do we focus on our core business model and activate the business continuity plan? Or do we look for hidden or necessary opportunities to keep our heads afloat and ideally grow our business?
Innovation & breakthrough ideas have more than often come from small discoveries, small changes in perception or ways of doing. But can we stimulate this mindset in current context?
On April 13th, Innovationscircle, a collaboration between Planitswiss and INN-Gage is scheduling a webinar to address this specific topic.
In this webinar Wesley will kick off with a brief overview of historical “innovation in crisis” success cases. Building on these insights a panel discussion, moderated by Graham Brown, will be conducted with several industry experts, with the opportunity to have Q&A and quick polls.
Last but not least it’s a webinar - so no commuting is needed. We maintain our social distancing as we all can call in remotely.
Amidst the ongoing global pandemic, limitations placed on travelling and gathering have made it challenging for businesses to actively remain connected with their network. In these unprecedented times, it is critically essential for business to continue engaging and interacting with existing and prospective customers, suppliers and internal staff in order to identify new business opportunities.
We live in an era of disruption where powerful global forces are changing the way we live and work. Innovation hence becomes a necessity in our goal to sustain and overcome tough environmental, social and economic challenges.
In a bid to support our members during these uncertain times, we are pleased to host a sharing and demo webinar session by a Swiss company who have innovated and developed some essential tools to help businesses stay engaged with their global audience. Through this session, we hope you will be able to gain some insights on how innovative solutions help to boost not only our event industry, but to any other business sectors too.
We would also like to take this opportunity to thank the Swiss Chamber of Commerce Singapore for supporting this live webinar. Please stay tune for the session!
Session 1: System Awareness & Self-transformation
Increasing our system-based logic to be fit for the unpredictability and complexity of the new normal
The recent years, and especially 2020, have shown us that unpredictability and complexity, driven by an increased global interconnectivity and the high paced technological revolution, are becoming the new norm.
How do we approach such a global challenge? How might we change our leadership approach to grasp this opportunity and stimulate personal leadership growth? How to keep a steady course as a company in these waters? What new insights can we leverage to boost transformative innovation?
Inspired by the growing awareness around living system-based logics, InnovationsCircle, will embark upon a “System-based logic” series together with Palo-IT, consisting of 3 sessions:
Session 1: System awareness & self-transformation June 30th
Session 2: Integrating system-based practices in organizations Date TBD
Session 3: Enabling Transformational innovation through system-based logic Date TBD
In the first session, on June 30th, Wesley Boers together with Cédric Mainguy, will dig deeper in how our personal leadership style in both “doing & being” need to adapt. After sharing insights on system-based logic, Cédric & Wesley will guide the participants through self-reflecting exercises. This with the intent to end the session with a clear action plan towards systemic leadership awareness.
Following session 1, session 2 & 3 will go deeper on how to approach this system-based logic in an organizational context in order to thrive and boost transformational innovation.
Session 2: Integrating System-based Practices in Organizations
Making your organization future-fit through system-based practices
In the first session, Wesley Boers, systemic transformation coach, and Cédric Mainguy, chief innovation officer @ Palo-IT, introduced key principles around systemic awareness and leadership. By understanding the shift in system thinking & engaging our full-body intelligence we no longer position our business as a pure shareholder value driver but more importantly as a system engine. This requires leaders who are aware of systemic needs (agency & well-being) and systemic forces (belonging, order, exchange).
Session 2 will build further on these principles on how to migrate from machine-like organizations towards system-based organizations driven by an evolutionary purpose.
You will walk away with an actionable system-readiness assessment tool for your organization + insights on key organizational patterns that could speed up or limit this evolution.
In session 3 (end Aug) we will condense all learning and insights from a personal and organizational level in order to boost transformational innovation.
