What a company needs to become innovative

The company is the keystone to the innovation process. If at any level the situation is hostile to innovation, innovation will suffer. 

One of the fundamental questions which company managers must ask is: is my company healthy and agile? What are the company’s strengths and weaknesses? By listening to their employees, understanding their customers’ needs, observing market trends and maintaining a solid network of relationships in their sector, an entrepreneur is already on the right track.

The concept of leadership from within is made up of three key elements:

  • Leading strategically and motivating employees
  • Leading by passing on values (words and actions)
  • Leading by example and boldly

Character traits such as intelligence, courage, passion and patience characterize this kind of leadership. This is a harmonious combination for successful leadership.
