Innovation Savvy’s Executive Team Workshop provides the opportunity for a leadership team to explore their individual and collective strengths in the context of innovation.
Understanding your instinctive strengths, how you naturally take action in response to risk and uncertainty, can increase your clarity, confidence and capability in leading for growth and innovation. Leaders who are aware of their strengths and take responsibility for when to lean into them, and when to invite others to lean into their differing strengths, empower collaboration and deliver innovation.

Leading for growth and innovation requires continuously increasing your capacity to navigate complexity and volatility, to allow for the emergence of new ideas and solutions. It requires creating a culture in which people can take risks, where collaboration is expected and rewarded.
We help leaders understand how to navigate this journey based on their specific leadership team dynamics and their unique situation.

“Lori has given us a common language and construct for collaboration and innovation that is really valuable in meeting our challenges...how we appreciate each other's strengths instead of criticizing people who are not like us. There's huge value for the team, but there's arguably even more value at the individual coaching level...that's the good stuff!
Lori has a depth of knowledge and the experience to back it up...she brings that credibility. She knows her stuff, and her style and energy and presence...it works, it just works.
Working with Lori gives me a lot of peace and I'm grateful for that.”
Andrea Kayne, Professor & Leadership Program Director, DePaul University
"When covid hit, everything went online and online teaching was not my strongest venue. Lori helped me design an approach that worked for me and gave my students what they needed. It was a huge success... I received my highest teaching evaluations ever!
Lori is a right brain and a left brain person, very logical and analytical, understands organizations and businesses, but she's also super creative and has really great ideas. She has lots of compassion, but can also challenge me with a question in a very gentle, supportive way...and point out things that maybe I didn't see."
