I participated in a wonderful event last night hosted by Kerryn Powell from Your Time Matters and Innovation was what I spoke about – This is my take on the subject, I would love your input?
What is your definition of innovation?
My definition of innovation is looking at better ways of doing things that meet a need or a purpose in the world. We should be human and planet-centric and look at ways of future proofing our society.
Innovation is the key to survival, and is what we as humans need to do to ensure we adapt and improvise and impact our world in positive ways.
Innovation is not…..
Is not change for change sake, is not automation for automation sake, is not new technology or new apps or self-driving cars – it is not the What we do – but why we do it and how we respond
What 3 things could your business or Industry do in 2017 to Innovate?
1. Get back to your WHY and your impact! Make sure your values and purpose are aligned
2. Get out of your comfort zone, get to the core, have conversations that matter, challenge your norms!
3. Collaborate – it is the new Black – Be Authentic – Be human – Build relationships and trust
How would this solve a problem?
We cannot change what we do not acknowledge or know what to do unless we know our why – We don’t know what we don’t know and we are at our best when we allow our minds to open up to the possibilities
What difference could this make or what would that achieve
We need to create a culture of accepting change and adaptability as inevitable and be part of the solution rather than the challenge. If we become more aware of our responsibility to each other and our world and to the future generations it will help and guide our decisions based on impact rather than financial gain.
