5 Leader-driven Behaviors of Deliberately Innovative Organizations
Diana Palmieri - Senior Consultant, Digital & Analytics | March 15, 2021

Culture matters, and the actions employees exhibit are just as important as the bottom-line results they help to achieve. As organizations consider how to cultivate innovation internally, they should first define what true innovation is and which behaviors need to be actioned to make it a reality. Innovation is more than just thinking creatively. It’s the series of events that turn a sparked idea into implemented reality. ​Ultimately, innovation is the ability to consider alternative possibilities, seek fresh perspectives, and divergently question the current-state to achieve something new or enhanced that creates value. ​

‘[U]ne voûte de cristal impénétrable’ meaning ‘an impenetrable crystal vault’ was coined by George Sand, a female French author. She expressed this phrase in the 1830s while describing a heroine’s agony on feeling her wings collapse and forming a ‘crystal shackle’ around her. This was probably the first time in history that the idea of an invisible barrier that prevented women from rising was spoken about. Since then, the proverbial ‘glass ceiling’ became more common across the world, with people responding to it in different ways– some dismissing it as a myth, some ambivalent about it, and others keen to understand how to dismantle it.

Resiliency: A Leadership Superpower

As you know, one of the 12 principles of agile is “Build projects around motivated individuals. Give them the environment and support they need, and trust them to get the job done.” If team members don’t feel safe about speaking up, it could result in repercussions for the product, the customer and ultimately, the entire organization. As part of organizational leadership, you are responsible for ensuring that members of your team feel safe in the workplace. That responsibility extends to creating and maintaining an environment where everyone can voice their opinions in a professional manner, even if it means disagreeing with the boss and speaking up if they feel uncomfortable, offended, or even under attack.

How does this Resiliency Superpower work in a real-life situation? Read on.
