LEARNING GOAL: DRIVE GROWTH AND INNOVATION
SKILL: DISRUPTIVE THINKING
Embrace change and challenge the status quo to drive real transformation.
Winning innovators embrace change – do you? What holds you and your organization back from better innovating, every day? Too often we’re stuck in the land of the status quo.
We’ve forgotten how to think differently, and lack the simple tools to solve problems creatively. The very structures put in place inside organizations to help them grow, all too often hold them back.
This keynote is an inspirational call to arms: to start a revolution in how we think and work. If you want people to approach change differently, you have to help them change their approach.
