Businesses Finding Their North Star

Finding your North Star - Innovation in high growth small and medium enterprise

Innovation is the lifeblood of business, and ideas are the pump that keeps it flowing. Innovation keeps business moving forward, and a failure to innovate can lead to stagnation and decline. Innovation is core to growing businesses and focal to hgkc’s approach. We have spent more than 18 months exploring the challenges and enablers of innovation with leaders of established and start-up businesses, resulting in our latest hgkc white paper.

Professional Lecture Series – What are the responsibilities of business leadership?

Upcoming EventProfessional Lecture Series – What are the responsibilities of business leadership?

Date: 06 Jun 2019 18:00

Professor Steve Kempster will be delivering the Professional Lecture, organised by the Bristol Leadership and Change Centre, at Bristol Business School, on Thursday 06 June 2019.

The talk will focus on Steve’s new book that explores the role of leadership in making manifest societal purpose to everyday business activity. Too little attention in leadership is focused on the responsibilities and activities of those who lead.

Responsible leadership moves the axis of leadership from leader – followers to leader – stakeholders; away from looking at leadership as person-centric – the qualities, abilities, and effectiveness of the leader – to a focus on the purposes, responsibilities, and activities of leadership.

Contact hgkc

We work with clients who…

  • are only innovative when your customers ask you to be
  • concerned you can’t see what your R&D team is achieving
  • are kept awake at night by fear of failure and risks to your business
  • are focused so much on today that plans for tomorrow are overwhelmed
  • are not confident enough to invite partners into your business (and definitely not competitors)

hgkc have helped us invent a whole new way to manage and communicate about our innovation projects – BAU, “the pond”, Blue-sky, horizons, Game Plans and RACI techniques have enabled us to focus on the key projects and direction for our innovation at TasteTech.
