No CEO or business leader can afford to ignore innovation in this ever-changing business landscape. In this module, innovation is pragmatically learned through three of its close tenants: creative thinking (thinking differently), problem solving and applying innovation. The focus is on developing an innovation mindset, learn to solve problems effectively and ultimately innovate and implement innovation successfully.
a) Unlocking Creativity and thinking differently
This is about developing a mindset for innovation to unlock our creative side through different tools and techniques.
You will learn about:
b) Problem solving
Problem solving is a natural part of life. In any business or industry, the ability of a CEO to solve problems can mean the difference between success and failure. Lacking the ability to solve problems effectively can be a source of anxiety and stress for any individual. Problem solving is not an exact science yet, although there are tools that a person can follow to become a successful problem-solver. Problem solving tools help you conduct a rigorous analysis of the problems you face, by helping you look at them in a structured and methodical way.
You will learn about:
c) Applying innovation
Having a great idea alone is not a recipe for success. You must implement ideas in to workable and profitable models. Innovation is winning the market. When great ideas are executed well, they spell great innovation.

CEOs are great communicators. In the day to day CXO communication space, a CEO will have to deal with three types of communication: Business Communication, Presentation skills and Negotiation
a) Business communication
As a top business executive, a CEO must learn to communicate with clarity and outcome. Business communication with the team includes how a leader manages vision and keeps everyone aligned to achieve results together. Great communication with stakeholders and other partners help the CEO to mobilize resources effectively. And communication with customers keeps the brand distinguishable and profitable.
You will learn:
b) Presentation skills
Most often CEOs step into the shoes of a spokesperson to represent their business. As leaders they need to present their idea to people, customers and stake holders. They also need to have a voice to represent their products and services. They also need to sell to an audience from a podium. They persuade countless customers and even turn their critics into fans. Great CEOs possess presentation skills and story telling abilities. But you don’t need to be a great orator to accomplish this feat. During this session, you will not only learn the techniques on how to build better rapport with an audience but also learn persuasive communication skills to present anything to anyone.
Your key takeaways:
c) Negotiation skills
Every thing in life is about negotiation. The world you live in is a giant negotiation table where everyone is interested in guarding their interests and getting the best deal for themselves. So what do you do if your interest clashes with those of others? Will you resort to confrontation or will you negotiate to achieve mutual satisfaction? Negotiation is a master skill that can help you get a YES when there is a NO.
The CEO is the execution in chief who orchestrates everyone to produce a common outcome together. To be effective at execution a CEO must be effective at three things: Time Management, People Engagement and Crisis Management.
a) Time Management
Time management is about priority management. It’s about developing utmost focus on the majors and doing it with a sense of ease and urgency.
b) People Engagement
Engaging people and resources determine the quality of output. Some CEOs possess stronger people skills while others fail at it. But people engagement is a skill that can be learned.
c) Crisis management
Everything is not likely to go according to the plan A. Plan B is also essential for execution.
When the team hits a stumbling block, they turn to their leader and a leader must be well prepared to handle unpleasant scenarios.
Crisis management means having a plan in place, having identified who will do what, and having practiced the plan for most conceivable events. Many of us think that we are good enough managers that we can handle anything that comes up. We think on our feet all the time and often all called upon to make quick decisions on key issues. Don’t kid yourself. A crisis, by its very nature, can be overwhelming. People who haven’t experienced this sort of thing don’t realize the pressure it creates. Nobody can think clearly during crisis. Therefore smart CEOs prepare their own crisis scenarios based on speculations and prepare themselves with there own Crisis Management Plan.
