Leadership with heart, mind, and soul

Why Leadership Requires Creativity (podcast)

Added on by Sam Davidson.

Today's podcast comes your way from The College of New Jersey! I was there recently to keynote their Leadership Lockup event, a gathering of student leaders for a day of learning and skill-building before the semester started.

I had a chance to speak with some of the student organizers of the event to discuss why they chose to focus on creativity as a key theme of their event (the place was decked out with Dr. Suess quotes and Cat in the Hat centerpieces). Give today's episode a listen to learn why creativity matters to leaders.

As you heard, creativity helps leaders:

  • Make their organization original
  • Originality helps a student organization to stand out among its peers
  • Such a unique angle generates excitement and commitment from members and followers, which can help ensure long-term success for the organization
