Creative Leadership

Course Objectives

In the Technovate era when jobs are taken over by AI and robots, creativity has become an ever-more-important skill for humans, especially business leaders. In fact, according to the World Economic Forum, creativity was named one of the "Top 10 Skills" needed in 2020.

In this course on Creative Leadership, we will examine creativity from the lenses of strategy and leadership. Students will learn how to: improve creativity on an individual level, bring out the creativity of teams as a leader, build a design-driven organization, and finally, how design can impact the world.

The course prepares students to be future change-makers with a strong sense of “communing”, co-creation, coworking, and sensemaking together, with their clients, business partners, stakeholders and the society. The course provides a creative perspective on the necessity of personal growth and professional development in the fast-changing world. The course is also a starting point for nurturing a creative community among the students and developing a strong and sustainable creative collective globally.
