A suite of concise audio tutorials aimed at supporting managers advance their personal and team innovativeness. Ideal as part of a structured personal development plan, or for leaders or managers to use as trigger events within a wider innovativeness campaign.
Call me if you would like to explore customising these around your company initiatives or innovative projects.
Kickstarting an innovators network
You feel proactive about innovation, several of your managers and wider team do too, and there are opportunities to build a movement for innovation. So, how do you create an innovation network, how do you engage your more innovative colleagues, and start a pro-innovation movement around the broader team?
Nurturing an innovative culture
Your managers could, should, and maybe want to be more innovative. But something keeps getting in the way. Maybe the culture needs to change, maybe the way leaders and managers engage with innovators? What can you do to better nurture innovativeness, to provide managers and teams with the ‘air cover’ they need to behave more innovatively, and to tolerate it in others; and how can you build the climate of trust people throughout the team need to reveal their innovative side?
Building diverse teams of innovators
Not all innovators approach innovation the same way, nor do people attempt innovation for the same personal goals, or have the same views on what 'good' looks like. How can you use this diversity approach in a positive way to get more creativity and engagement with innovation; and how should you best approach the challenge of building a balanced network of innovators who will be able to make changes 'sticky'?
Understanding why people react differently to innovation
You love innovation, even as other people seem bothered or even scared of it, or don’t get why it matters. Understanding why people react differently to innovation is key to initiating transformative thinking in organisations, and making big change happen. Learn why the differences occur, why they matter, and what you can do to get a better reaction to innovation.
Innovating under uncertainty and ambiguity
The biggest threat to innovative behaviour, at the very moment when it matters most. Probably one of the biggest operational challenges - how to re-frame uncertainty and ambiguity as opportunities for innovation rather than threats to it.
