As innovation and disruption is accelerating in the marketplace, it can be difficult to keep up with the pace. Creativity is not only acknowledged as essential to innovation, it's become the most critical skill requirement for today's leaders.

With a creative mindset, economic pressures, accelerated industry adaptations, increasing volumes of data, and ever-changing customer preferences are opportunities - not obstacles. By applying creative techniques to real business challenges, leaders can broaden their mindsets and learn to break out of the box to create new opportunities. Join Destinations International to learn how creative change and critical leadership competencies of successful change efforts can significantly impact your destination.
