Fearless Innovation™ Training Program

Harness the power of innovation, no matter your role

Innovation is critical to success, yet most organizations struggle to achieve high levels of innovation and change. Companies talk about innovation or pursue it through relatively small, specialized teams. Yet the most progress is achieved when every employee becomes more innovative—unleashing the benefits of incremental improvements.

Blanchard’s Fearless Innovation explores the idea that each individual—armed with the principles of innovation—could be a catalyst for positive change. It teaches an innovation mindset and skill set that empowers everyone to be innovators.

Adopt a powerfully simple model to unlock innovation

There has never been more pressure on organizations to evolve. Yet, less than 20% of our research respondents can experiment without being penalized for mistakes. Further, most innovation frameworks focus on executives and product designers. There’s very little support to help most of us become more innovative in our daily work lives.

Fearless Innovation provides an easy-to-understand model that immediately empowers everyone in your organization to begin innovating. It starts with teaching the three mindsets needed to innovate:

  • Grace: The courage to accept imperfection
  • Curiosity: The courage to wonder and wander
  • Proactivity: The courage to act and disrupt

The program then teaches a four-step process to identify meaningful challenges that innovation can improve, generate ideas, experiment with an idea to test its merit, and launch it into the workplace.

Delivery Option

We can deliver the Fearless Innovation course as five one-hour virtual sessions with intersession assignments, so your people learn how to feel more confident innovating and more engaged with their work.
