Innovation is the life-blood of organisational survival. We need the big break-throughs and we need the small brilliant solutions to day to day problems. Innovation comes from surprising places.
So why don’t we take the time to think brilliantly and independently? Why do quiet experts find it hard to be heard in meetings? Why do people listen to interrupt rather than to understand? Why are meetings a competitive sport? Why do managers rush to give solutions rather than encourage us to think for ourselves? All these common behaviours waste talent, potential and money.
If you can create & use a Thinking Environment™ and encourage independent thinking you will save time and dramatically improve both your innovation potential and levels of team engagement. It will also help you talk to your loved ones!
We are running our first open programme in January teaching leaders & managers how to build these skills. If you’d like to know more about this, give me a ring on firstname.lastname@example.org .
You can also read the seminal book on this topic by Nancy Kline called More Time To Think.
