Abstract Building a culture of innovation through learning depends on effective leadership. By its very name and nature, 'innovation' requires thinking and acting outside the square, and this requires leadership in the organisation that fosters an element of risk-taking. In turn, effective leadership in any organisation depends on building a knowledge culture that supports risk-taking. One wonders how innovation can flourish in a world that works hard to minimise and manage risk and does not continuously create a knowledge workforce. This talk outlines some basic steps in managing the change culture of organisations through an innovative new model of leadership. The correct use and interaction between enabling leadership and management releases the human, knowledge and social capital potential and in so doing allows a strategic handling of risk, innovation and change.
