DEC 2, 2021 - 6:19 am
STRIPES Leadership Program, the professional and personal leadership development program designed to challenge and inspire best-in-class leaders within the equipment finance industry in partnership with Monitor, announced that industry leader Denis Stypulkoski, founder and principal at Reimagine Advisors, will lead a Master Workshop titled Innovation Begins with Leadership — Enabled through Culture & Fueled by Curiosity.
This Master Workshop will acknowledge that we do not always have all of the answers. Knowing when to say “I don’t know” and how to move forward will help you and your team develop a culture of innovation. Innovation through curiosity and agility is the only sustainable competitive advantage. This workshop will allow participants to exercise the primary tool of curiosity: seeking answers to questions. Participants will practice the skills of group innovation, powered by “yes and” idea building.
“Curious innovators continually ask questions on a never-ending journey to learn more,” Stypulkoski said.
STRIPES Leadership Program is a 10-month, rich and unique leadership development experience. With a mixture of assessments, Master Talks are just one component of the comprehensive program tapestry, which also includes Master Workshops, mentor modules, breakthrough discussions and leadership development plans. Originally launched in September, the program cultivates a transformative journey to leadership advancement. The curriculum is designed to present opportunities for participants to expand both personally and professionally to enhance their leadership potential.
“Curious leaders are driven by their desire to capture new information that can solve problems and ignite innovation.” Lisa Rafter, CEO and founder of STRIPES Leadership Program, said. “In Denis’ Master Workshop, participants will discover how to think differently and how to leverage curiosity to open doors to new possibilities.”
