Creativity and Innovation in Organizational Leadership
AbstractThis paper explores the significant role of leadership in both the creativity and innovation processes of an organization. It is a proven fact that culture and technology enhance leadership effectiveness in most organizations because leadership represents the catalyst that drives organizational creativity and innovation. So, for an organization to accomplish constant innovation, leaders must create a conducive learning environment that promotes a deep-rooted culture of experimentation thereby encouraging creativity and innovation (Agbor, 2008). However, creativity and innovation in organizations depend on how leaders promote and manage diversity by developing an effective leadership structure that could sustain the entire process of innovation. Since most innovation projects are said to fail 90% of the time, developing effective innovation teams within an organization is critical. So, apart from outlining the various attributes of a successful innovator within an organization and their characteristics, our major focus will be on the key lessons learned during the process of innovation and creativity, overcoming the several myths and wrong assumptions that are associated with them, knowing what the structure of scientific revolutions entail in making innovation works and the spiritual contexts of creativity and innovation.Keywords: Creativity, Innovation, Leadership effectiveness, Learning environment, Organization, Revolution and Leaders
