How to Accelerate Ideas…

Photo by Sujan Patel

Do you accelerate ideas or do you drain ideas?

Idea Accelerators…
Interesting, tell me more…
Help me understand the positive impact?
Can you cost it out?
What is your timeframe?
What burning questions do you need answers to?
Who else should you share this with?
What stakeholder will be impacted?

Idea drainers say…
We’ve already tried it.
Yes, but…
“They” will never buy into it.
It’s not possible
It’s too expensive.
It’s not realistic.
It’s not feasible
It’s too time consuming.

Are you guilty?

Next time someone brings an idea to you, how will you be more supportive?

Are You An Intrapreneur?





















(Joachim von Heimburg)

A recent US based study on corporate culture discovered that people are eager to be entrepreneurial (AKA innovative). Sadly 52% of the people surveyed, said they have pursued an entrepreneurial idea at work, but, their biggest frustration… No support from their managers.

What can you do to drive creativity by supporting innovation and intrapreneurial culture at work? If your boss isn’t supportive, maybe you should forward this and initiate a conversation.

Delivering Happiness!





We recently delivered a speech, “Happiness is Everyone’s Job.” We followed Jen Lim, who shared the Zappos story… Our job was to answer this question, “Now that we know how Zappos does it, how do WE deliver happiness, everyone, everywhere, everyday?” As a part of the keynote we shared a clip of our dear friend, Kim Francom, he inspires happiness everywhere he goes. Kim is the most sought after Ski Instructor on the Sundance Mountain, although he is a beautiful skier, people request Kim because of his attitude, his spirit, and his ability to bring out the happiness and “can do” spirit in others.

Watch a second clip on Kim Francom here

Ken Blanchard on Collaboration!

(Click the image to hear Ken)

The practice of collaboration will enrich our lives and lead to a more enlightened future. “Essence” paves the way for unlikely partnerships and leads to more engagement and fulfillment in life and at work. Ken shares great stories that prove innovation and our ability to affect positive change happen when we collaborate with people who bring very diverse talents to the partnership.

What if we commit to essence.. There a good chance our partnership will be more fulfilling, more innovative and certainly more fruitful!

Enjoyed the post “say it forward” share it with a friend or two!
