Behavioral training is emerging as the best way to teach someone how to develop the courage to step out from the pack and assume a leadership position, according to Carol Dweck, author of the New York Times Best Seller Growth Mindset.

Innovators introduce new ideas, practices and products.

Their ideas are unfamiliar to us, they change the way we see things and open us up to unconsidered and more effective ways of approaching challenges and solving problems.

Innovators pilot digital transformation projects.  Leaders determine the overarching mission and direction of the organization.

Both are willing to take risks and challenge the status quo for sake of what could and should be.

That's tough to do. It requires guts.

Particularly at big organizations that have been doing things the same way for decades.

So innovation is really just another form of leadership, and behavioral training is one of the best to learn to rise to the challenge.
