Innovation Academy

Innovation Culture

A 1-day workshop to learn proven methods of engaging your team to create the behaviours and beliefs necessary to drive an agile and thriving organizational future.



Organizational culture is a powerful force within your organization.  It can make or break your business strategy. It can attract or repel great talent. It can inspire the new, or hold tightly to old ideas. The good news? An organization’s or team’s culture doesn’t have to “just happen”. It can be shaped. It can be intentional. You can actively participate in creating your powerful innovation culture.

For the optimal Innovation Culture experience, we recommend registering with a partner or team member to begin work on a real challenge.

We can customize this workshop or develop a learning program for your organization; please inquire.
