  • Chart taken from “How GE Teaches teams to lead change” “ Before attending the Leadership, Innovation, and Growth program, the senior managers of a GE business would assess their team’s success in creating a climate supportive of creativity. The chart below compares the average score of the Power Generation team with the average scores of 10 innovative and fi ve stagnant organizations. The team members were pleasantly surprised to fi nd themselves largely aligned with the innovative organizations, but their scores sparked a discussion of whether they took enough risks, spent too much time debating issues, and were too serious.”
