Members of Poetic Change have noticed a problem, that there are too many leaders who under utilize the talent that is present on their teams. Conformity and uniformity has its benefits. But an environment that is too rigid, is not conducive for innovation. Innovation is born from diversity - diverse talents, different ways of thinking, and diverse people. When a leader does not know how to properly lead and embrace a diverse team, that leader will not receive their full investment from their human capital.
Our Poetic Change Agents set out to change this dynamic in a creative and entertaining way. Our first solution is to bring awareness to the under utilization of talent, and then discuss solutions with our fellow Americans. Our first prototyping of this idea was conducted in Washington D.C. - the home to many Poetic Change Agents. One of our Agents- Ian Tran of Michigan has a background in sustainability and leadership development. He also is a classical violinist with an amazing ear for music and a heart for fusion.
Below are highlights from our first Creative Leadership Pop-up Concerts.
