Live outside the norm. Work free from fear. Create beyond convention.
At ICI, we leverage the power of art to guide visionary, entrepreneurial leaders like you in reconnecting to your vital creativity and awakening your inner rebel.
So you can make real magic happen.
We’ve been where you are: Stuck. Feeling like you should be farther. Knowing that the kind of joyful, impactul work you want to do feels just out of reach. Certain you’re destined for something greater.
There is no shortage of standard-issue coaches and consultants who only have a limited, methodical process. A left-brain approach that lives on the surface and tends to get tangled up in a skewed focus on superficial results.
Cookie-cutter coaching programs don't lead to real change. So, we asked: How can we shift the paradigm?
Then, we explored. What we learned: Creative companies hold a more commanding market share. According to Creativity at Work, creative companies’ market leadership position outnumbers their less creative counterparts by a factor of 1.5. That impact extends to revenue — and it starts with leadership that embraces creativity.
It was this — and lots of other data and experiences binding creativity, leadership, and results — that sparked InnovationCompass, LLC in 2006, where we brought the worlds of entrepreneurship and art together through experiential education. More a decade later — with lots of learning, coaching, and results under our belt, InnovationCompass morphed into the Innovation & Creativity Institute, where we further our merging of business and creativity to help leaders make real-world impact today.
After all, extraordinary results require an extraordinary approach.
The Creative Rebel's Voyage
Our signature paradigm for masterful leadership that starts from within.
Creative rebels are fully seen and heard. Creative rebels do less and achieve more. Creative rebels live a life of abundance and great impact.
Creative rebels start with art.
Since 2016 and the inception of ICI, The Creative Rebel’s Voyage has evolved from watching leaders struggle to get to their next level, limited by what they know — and what they don’t — and fearful of embracing the art-filled path that will unlock their true potential.
At ICI, we have one guiding principle: Art is the way.
Did we just hear you say, “That’s cute, but I have work to do?” We get it. Now, hear us out: Creativity is play. It’s opening your mind to possibility. It’s the ability to be comfortable with failure. And it’s the (science-backed) key to changing everything.
The Creative Rebel’s Journey is the new paradigm for the leader who:
- is craving renewed energy
- is willing to be vulnerable
- is open to exploring their creative potential
- is constantly seeking
- is weary of worn-out models of entrepreneurship
- is craving more ease and wealth
- is hungry to expand their capacity to serve
- is driven to envisage what society can become
…and wants to do their part to make it
If you’re here, the Creative Rebel is already within you. It just needs to be awakened.
With that in mind, The Voyage journeys through two levels of mastery:
1. Leadership of Self
Creating change starts by seeing that change in yourself first and foremost. Heal yourself, find what is just beyond your reach, discover who you are becoming, and uncover what is wanting to be created.
2. Leadership of Others
Develop your creative genius, then cultivate and nurture a culture and team that enables you to stay in your genius and live your legacy.
Artists are society’s most daring visionaries
ICI exists to amplify the inner artists of the world and give leadership the new paradigm its been craving. Each of our programs are built upon The Creative Rebel’s Journey, where moonshot thinking becomes your norm; 10xing your results becomes a reality; and working less, living more, and loving it all beyond belief is your everyday.
