Sparking innovation through changing the way leaders lead.

"When Chris is with us, our conversations spark into life in surprising and unexpected ways...and this aliveness stays in us, even when he’s gone” Dolf van den Brink, CEO HEINEKEN Mexico

Is it possible to bring a new spark of life to our strategic conversations, the ones that can often feel boxed in and rather dead? Is it possible for us to bring this lively way of working the creative tension between us, as leaders, back into our everyday work?
