Innovation— most know it is necessary for survival yet it is often categorized as a “nice to have” (right next to “soft skills” training) when it comes down to budget. When people talk about innovation there is a lot of talk about new ideas and trends, about the innovation process from ideation to market, and even about discovering new markets. All of these are valid, but all of these are “things” outside of the business. If we continue to treat Innovation as a “thing”, we will continue to miss the point.

When companies simply copy the methods and tools from Silicon Valley, they often miss that these tools were created in a specific cultural context. Much of the success of Silicon Valley was not just due to the technologies developed there, but also due to the personal development technologies that shaped much of what we associate with California.

Innovation starts with “I” — with the individual.
Each individual involved in the process.
Each individual is responsible for innovation and for creating a culture of innovation. Each individual holds a field that will allow for certain ideas and behaviors to emerge — or not.

Come learn what it takes to be an innovation leader and...

increase your capacity to enroll people in change,

build resilience in the face of resistance,

shift who we are to create new results and

create a culture of ownership and innovation starting with personal transformation.
