Perhaps no other country celebrates innovation the way America does.

We are reminded of the life changing power of inventiveness everyday.

I aks your audience tothink about some of these unanswered questions.

  • Who or what are we today?
  • Who do we want to become?
  • How do we get there?

Lets commit to consistent execution because in consistency success emerges.

An idea does not a visionary make.

That guy named Steve Jobs knew the difference. At first, Jobs didn't want to open up the App Store to third-party developers for fear of "polluting" Apple's pristine first-party ecosystem--that is until his close advisors urged him otherwise.

Refusing to be held captive by (his own) bad ideas, he altered his vision to capture the best of both worlds, retaining control of iPhone apps with a strict app approval process while allowing third party apps to flourish.

The lesson, then, is this: Being that the future hasn't happened yet, no idea is toocomplete to change or too incomplete to start on.

Pursue the change," not the idea itself.

Transform how you think not what you think.

Examine new ideas, in a new light, and differentiate to win.
The status quo may have won in the past, but that was yesterday. Your being asked to do more ...with a lot less. Most people are time challenged. Priority challenged. Financially challenged. As a leader it's time to be 'pardoned' from beingheld captive by bad ideas, help others altertheir vision to capture the best solution, while allowing them flourish professionally and personally.

There are lots of challenges to creating a culture of Innovation. Innovation is a product of discomfort but culture eats innovation strategy for breakfast. In other words, corporate culture is more powerful than any individual strategy. We must challenge and change culture to create innovation. Effective innovators have a history of volunteers selected from high achievers and offered functional diversity. We have to stay one step ahead by doing the opposite of what everyone else is doing. To understand what drives innovation we need to address Innovation Challenges 1. Failure to understand the need for innovation by employees, customers, stakeholders 2. A pipeline uninspiring ideas. 3. An aversion to risk taking 4. Poor execution Leaders need to drive innovation by 1. Inspiring curiosity 2. Challenging current perspectives 3. Support an environment of freedom 4. Campaign for discipline Associates should always 1. Question assumptions 2. Think differently 3. Experiment 4. Set Goals that get done
