Fostering a culture of innovation and creativity: lessons from Google

Everyone speaking about innovation, but nothing much happening? Innovation can start with a small step, a tiny improvement or a bold move. However, often it’s only the bold moves – and the big advances – that receive recognition. 


Hiam Sakakini and Monika Gisler both worked in leadership and development roles at Google for over a decade, and are now co-founders of Think.Change.Grow, a people and culture consultancy agency based in Sydney. They help organisations to shake up the existing status quo to encourage recognition of the less obvious contributions. 

The result? A more innovative workforce thanks to a culture that encourages people to pursue new ideas.

Communication intelligence across cultures

Interacting with people from differing backgrounds and cultures – whether they are colleagues or customers – can sometimes be a daunting challenge. Perhaps you avoid conflict and provide subtle feedback, whereas your team member may be very direct. It is worth recognising that we all have our own unique mindsets, strengths and limitations when it comes to communicating.

In this webinar, Michael Writer from WriterCross Consulting will discuss each of the potential communication preference styles and how you can adjust your own approach to influence, inspire and/or engage your audience.
