The Secret Sauce to Innovation in Government

Free Online Workshop | Exclusive for Public Servants & Policymakers

“The greatest enemy of knowledge is not ignorance, it is the illusion of knowledge.” — Daniel J. Boorstin

All of us have a limited capacity for knowledge; we simply can’t know it all. Ultimately, this means that we have to rely on our teams — and this is where our different backgrounds and diversity come into play.

Yet to fully leverage your team’s collective knowledge, you need to build trust in a way that fosters a common understanding and encourages people to share openly and honestly with each other.

In this workshop we’ve partnered with Policy Ignite to show you how to create strong teams using self-reflection and feedback. You’ll also learn how to optimise the collective knowledge of your team and how to use this to start innovating.

What you’ll learn:

  • How to maximise your team’s capacity for knowledge sharing
  • How to build trust horizontally
  • How to create psychological safety in teams

Who you’ll hear from:

Adrian M. Senn – Acting Manager in the Research and Innovation Lab at the Canada Revenue Agency (Ottawa, Ontario)
Cedric Jean-Marie – Manager of Data Stewardship in the Chief Data Office at Employment and Social Development Canada (Gatineau, Quebec)

Who should watch:

Anyone who wants to learn how to tap into their team’s collective knowledge and create a space where innovation can take place.
