CYBERTORIAL* The African Cristal Festival not only recognises creative excellence, and hosts discussions around creativity, but also offers leadership training opportunities. In collaboration with the Berlin School of Creative Leadership, a two-day training course will run at the event (11-12 May 2017) under the theme ‘Leading for Creative Value’.
It will be headed up by Stuart Hardy who is faculty director of executive education at the Berlin School of Creative Leadership, UK and is geared towards individuals who are managing other individuals or teams and/or individuals who manage significant budgets.
The training consists of four modules across the two days. The first one will look at creative leadership, unpacking agile leadership skills required by creative executives engaging in new hybrid styles of leadership in response to external pressures such as consultancy, digital, tech, measurement, etc. The second module focuses on leading innovation and disruption, examining the pillars of innovation that are required to be successful, based on best practice and global benchmarking, and the emotional intelligence required to support them. The third one, on the second day, is around creative consulting, a role which is becoming more prominent in businesses as they start to fully realise its value. The fourth module is on creative value and the aim of it is to find possible values of a group or organisation and learn about strategies for the group to learn to live those values.
