9Leaders…a movement on leadership and corporate innovation…
Join our LinkedIn group here! It’s free for individuals to join us, but we do ask for companies, organizations, scale-ups and a few service providers to support our initiative (EUR 2,500 annual fee).
# Assessment and Action
What is the state of your corporate innovation capabilities or a specific initiative related to this? You get an assessment by Stefan Lindegaard including a list of suggested action points. This is a private 3-hour session at or near your location.
# 90-minutes sessions - What’s going on with corporate innovation?
You and your colleagues join other 9Leaders to learn about the best and next practices on corporate innovation in interactive sessions led by Stefan Lindegaard (2-3 per year per city).
# Workshop - Leadership & Corporate Innovation
At least once a year, we do a half-day workshop on leadership and corporate innovation in your city. Here, we get into a more practical mode with insights, discussions and exercises. You can join with 3 colleagues.
# Attention to your needs and interests (eyes and ears)
Stefan Lindegaard travels the world and he is happy to connect your needs, interests and opportunities with like-minded people. Let him know and he will try to help.
Your time, that it the most precious, but we do hope that you will invest some of it in 9Leaders. Besides your time, we also offer you all of the above for just EUR 2,500 a year (per city, if you want to join with multiple cities). Get in touch to learn more.
Please contact Stefan Lindegaard if you want to learn more and support us!
What is 9Leaders?
9Leaders is an initiative founded by Stefan Lindegaard and our mission is to help companies get better at innovation. This requires a different mindset and better approaches for leadership and corporate innovation. We are guided by nine leadership principles. We refer to these as our Impact Manifesto:
# We put people first, processes next, then ideas
# Individuals don’t win in the long run, teams do
# We build organizational capabilities with an inside-out approach
# We believe in the power of ecosystems and networks
# We focus on customers and markets (through a lense of new and merging industries first)
# It starts at the top - with the right mindset and new approaches
# We don’t work with digital strategies, but with strategies for a world that is already digital
# Our metrics and KPI’s focus more on behaviors than outcomes
# We put sustainability at the center of the business
At 9Leaders, we aim for impact, business results and career development in a sustainable way. We focus on helping our friends from large companies/organizations and scale-ups, but others with an interest in our mission are welcome to join us.
