Leadership for Creativity and Innovation

Recently I attended the Creativity and Innovation Management Conference at Buffalo State College.
One keynote that especially moved me was the presentation given by Michael Mumford on the Role of Leadership in an Innovative and Creative organization.
Here are some quick bullet points that Dr. Mumford stated are needed for effective leadership - I believe this is not just in creative organizations it is needed for all leadership!
Roles Of The Leader:
  • Promote Idea Development
  • Bring the Right People Together
  • Define a Viable Mission
  • Ensure Effective Planning and Implementation
  • Develop Organizational Absorptive Capacity

What do you feel is missing, if anything?
