CLS N°1 — Managing Creative Talents

creative leadership salon cokrea namename off-time


Have you noticed that we are entering a new era of leadership? We see that companies begin to sincerely work on their relationship with people and planet next to focusing on how to do good business. It is no longer a question of 'either/or' but one about 'yes, and…'.

Such a triple bottom line does not only make businesses more successful, it also is necessary we believe. A complex, volatile, unpredictable future demands for holistic ways of thinking. This kind of environment consistently creates disruptors and game-changers, affecting more and more industries. And we will most certainly see more of it.


The Creative Leadership Salon is Munich’s place to go for ambitious change makers. We gather professionals who are working at the intersection of leadership, creativity and business. Our mission is to help our leadership culture to make a leap.



We will continue on the journey of filling the idea of Creative Leadership with meaning: This time, our topic is MANAGING CREATIVE TALENT.

It is not definitions that we are looking for but deeds, experiences and intra-/ entrepreneurship. This series will be about celebrating the making and daring — because the time is ripe for genuinely reinventing business.

Why joining?

How you will benefit from participating:

  • Co-Shape Munich’s Creative Leadership hub together with professionals and leaders from various industries.

  • Become part of a community of pioneers, innovators and purpose-driven personalities.

  • Hear about personal experiences and stories. Leverage the paradigm shift in leadership and business developing.

  • Learn how to tap into group intelligence (Salon as method and Fishbowl). Harvest ideas around questions of facilitation, co-creation… and obviously learn from creative leadership by example.

  • We will make sure that you will feel at home at CLS. To us, this means: you may expect good vibes and good wine.

  • Please do us a favour: Creative Leadership comes in many colours and tastes. Help us to celebrate this diversity: We would kindly ask you to bring a cheese of your choice.

The approach of thinking holistically, humanely and imaginatively is mirrored in our idea of Creative Leadership.

Following our head, heart and experience we want fill the idea of Creative Leadership with action and examples. We strive to bring it alive.

And we would like you to join us!

3 • Evening’s topic: “Managing Creative Talent”

The key to successful talent management starts with the establishment of three fundamental approaches. Firstly, it is important to start with the right definition of what talent is. Secondly, it is necessary to see talent as something that develops in time. Thirdly, it is necessary to think of talent in three scales: individual, group, and organizational. Creativity can be viewed as talent, and can be developed as all other talents, and indeed it will be THE talent of the future. To develop it, we need to utilize these three approaches, and more, we need to radically change the conversation around creativity. Far from being a “soft skill”, creativity can indeed be measured and, with the application of creativity tools and techniques, it can be fine-tuned and effectively developed. We need to get serious about creativity, because this is the foundation for business to build innovation muscle, and deliver on all that the future promises.
