Unlock Innovation with the Poet’s Keys

Wednesday, July 31
10:45 – 11:45am

Leaders and poets want the same thing. Both strive to innovate on the status quo to offer their audience a new perspective, and consequently, a new way to exist in the world. For some leaders, the status quo often becomes a comfortable place to hide. By contrast, poetry is the act of stepping out of our comfort zone to change the way we see the world, and by its very existence, requires innovation. Without it, poets don’t exist. Both poets and leaders face the same barriers to innovation, but poets turn to five tools to break through. We’ll explore how can leaders use those same tools to unlock the doors to change in our own work, and to inspire our audiences to do the same.
