Breakthrough solutions start with assumption-challenging questions—and it’s a leader’s obligation to surface them. As Hal Gregersen explores in his Harvard Business Review piece, leaders can learn a lot from photographers about how to lead and ask the right questions. In this video, he discusses how photography has impacted his own work as a leader and the framing questions that he asks and lives. The intersection between inquiry and images is the foundation of the MIT Sloan Executive Education workshop “Leadership and the Lens: Learning at the Intersection of Innovation and Image-Making” that Gregersen teaches with world-renowned National Geographic photographer Sam Abell.

Building Young Innovators
The next generation – our children – will soon be walking into an environment more tumultuous than it ever was before. As a result, it will be more critical for them to practice the problem-solving power of innovation than it ever was before. For this reason, Hal Gregersen founded the 4-24 project, which provides the tools and inspiration needed to sharpen and cultivate the questioning ability of the world’s children. In this video, Hal Gregersen discusses why it's so important to sustain our children's curiosity and how we can achieve this by encouraging questioning, exposing them to new people and places, and embracing failure. Together, we can improve our global society today and nurture the next generation of innovators tomorrow.
