Today, 18% of jobs advertised on seek.com under $100k pa, require innovation or innovative thinking. This compares to 25% of jobs over $100k pa. To accelerate your career you need to have an innovation mindset and be able to show your current or prospective employer.
It is obvious to say that the ability for organisations to innovate has long been recognised as a source of success. It can be hard for an organisation to objectively identify and assess the skills of their people to be innovative.
Tess Julian, CEO of Catalyst Exchange identified that “Research shows that an innovation mindset, combined with methods such as agile, lean, design thinking and project processes, can deliver up to 58% improvement in performance.”
“To be a high performing professional, innovation mindset is a vital ingredient” says Jon Kerr, DeakinCo.
Tess outlines that “Most people already have a good deal of innovative thinking, but they haven’t recognised its importance, haven’t had permission to apply it or haven’t applied it in the right way. You should start off with the assumption that you are half-way there, the glass is half full, and through storytelling and conversation, learn to articulate your strengths and pinpoint what you need to work on.”
Hargraves Institute is proud to present Innovation Mindset in collaboration with DeakinCo. of Deakin University.
Innovation Mindset is a one-day Masterclass for people who want to achieve more at work… your license to innovate. Once completed the next option is a Professional Credential from DeakinCo.
Jon says “DeakinCo. brings together business and university learning to provide flexible and tailored measurement and recognition solutions. Through Professional Practice Credentials and vocational and higher education qualifications, DeakinCo. enables organisations and individuals to build, assess and recognise skills, knowledge and achievements.”
Why is this Masterclass different?
Innovation Mindset shares Hargraves Institute’s best practices on nurturing and inspiring innovative organisations.

Innovation Mindset endorses our belief that organisations need more than elite teams and methods to tackle today’s tough challenges.
