Innovation Just for You!

What are your biggest challenges to leading a culture of innovation?

Recently we created an innovative process for delivering a presentation that answers this question. We call it, Designed by YOU for YOU!

One week in advance of the event, we sent an email to the entire audience and asked, “what are your biggest challenges to leading a culture of innovation?” We are pleased to note; 10% of our audience responded and we designed a 90 minute presentation to answer their specific innovation challenges. It was so successful, we are invited back in January 2013 to present a half day program.

Here is a comment from the event host: “Thank you for an outstanding, remarkable and very compelling presentation this morning. The time and energy that you put into it was noticeable. We have received great verbal feedback. We look forward to working with you on the January event.”

Thanksgiving!

We love music, it inspires and it moves us, literally and figuratively! Music also calls us to seize the day.

As we focus forward and anticipate time with family and friends we hope the lyrics in Darius Rucker’s (formerly Hootie) song.
While I still Got the Time” might be refreshing…
I’m gonna..
Work like I don’t need the money.
Laugh like I’m not afraid to cry.
Dance like nobody’s watching.
Love while I still got the time.

What better chance than Thanksgiving to practice doing work that matters, laughing till it hurts, dancing just because, and loving unconditionally!

The End of Your Comfort Zone

While speaking at Western Family Foods, vendor conference a US Olympic Bronze medal winner, @GarrettLowney, shared his favorite quote, “Life begins at the end of your comfort zone.” We love it! Likewise, we are fond of saying, “Get comfortable being uncomfortable,” for in that awkward space you may discover an opportunity to innovate.

Where are you a little too comfortable these days?

Let life and innovation begin

Local and Global Power

November 6, 2012

Recently at the Opportunity International Summit, we met Carly Fiorina. While addressing a group of global micro finance sponsors, Carly said, “the single greatest point of leverage in the world today is women.”

When women are empowered the economy, productivity and literacy rates improve. In addition, disease, poverty and acts of terrorism decrease. Understanding women is not just an economic necessity, it is a social and moral obligation.

The SheEconomy is not only local it is global. Women control upwards of 87% of US and 65% of global purchasing power. Global micro financing has determined that when you loan to women they invest upwards of 93% back into the family and they pay the loan back. Men only invest about 35% into the family and their payback rates are far less than women.

Understanding women as financially literate and financially powerful is a key to earning her loyalty and her business. How do you rate when it comes to marketing, advertising, and serving women?

Is your approach tired, dated, condescending and stereotypical, or are you finding a way to provide innovative solutions for the lifestyle she controls locally and globally?
