In the interview, Mel explains the tight linkage between innovative leaders and the development of a strong workforce. He also addresses how future leaders are developed via a robust science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) and arts (STEAM) pipeline. In the book, he drills down to illuminate what makes leaders so good at innovation and talent, and describes how to move an innovation strategy from “chasing shiny objects” to a powerful, sustainable cultural change and create a magnet for great talent.
