    GRACEbreak Radio | Be Prepared to Take Risk & Innovate

    in Business

    When you are prepared to imagine, innovate, and risk within your gift set you are no longer living within the set standard of average! ~ Tracy Worley


    Who are you inviting to the dance floor to innovate, collaborate, and have fun?


    We all have risk and either we embrace it or do everything in our power to avoid it. Imagine the playground where a group of children are jumping off the top of the monkey bars and then there are the few who stand at the edge pacing waiting for the school bell to ring so they do not have to jump.


    I want to encourage you to JUMP! Not in the sense of physical, mental, or spiritual harm but to really jump back into a childlike state and use your imagination, create, and innovate right where you stand. Ken Robinson states the risk of imagination eloquently, be prepared to be wrong. When you are prepared to risk, be wrong, and basically stand there looking like an idiot you are onto something!


    The risk takers are the ones you watch rise to the next level, the risk takers are the ones who are creating original ideas.

    "To create sustained innovation excellence..it is necessary to create innovation platforms and netowkrs of individuals within them where the selected innovative individuals can share with each other, be lead, and GROW." ~ Davila, Epstein, Shelton


    You are meant to have a life and career of significance so embrace your natural gifts, talents, wisdom, and knowledge to create original ideas.


    Look UP & OUT!

    Innovate Your Brain: Chris Steely of BizKickers

    in Entrepreneur

    So how do you prepare for this new economy?  It is high-tech and evolving quickly.  It is also low wage for workers and low margin for businesses.  The key to success appears to be innovation.  But not just technological innovation -- but mind innovation.  It’s something I have heard Chris Steely talk about for years now.  Chris is a business consultant and trainer.  His site is www.bizkickers.com.  He explains how to innovate your mind.  He also cites some good books.


    3:40-6:08 So when we talk about innovation… how do you innovate yourself? … deploy like never done before… innovate how we think… how we deliver a solution… new economy … in this new economy.”


    How do you innovate your brain for this new economy?


    It’s really the metaphor of sharpening the edge… Stephen Covey… Quantum Warrior by John Kehoe… leaders are readers… Success leaves clues: Jim Rone … getting out in community… what you don’t know … science of programming language of your brain … we are all Einstein to some extent … we all get to heed it.”


    I think awareness is the key… Secret cliché… Secret doesn’t talk about taking effective action… systems of leadership … track your business… read… seminars… to get results.”


    My take-away from this one:  It is not easy out there.  This is a new economy.  And you need to understand the new economy and then know the rules or if you are innovative enough recreate the rules.  That’s informed not inflamed.  Catch you next time.

    Steven Overman-The Conscience Economy: How a Mass Movement is Great for Business

    in Business

    The Conscience Economy: How a Mass Movement for Good is Great for Business by Steven Overman


    This on demand audio series is a part of the Executive Girlfriends Group Vignette Series. Chicke Fitzgerald interviews Steven Overman. The original live interview was 7/31/15.


    A generation of people around the world, from Boston to Bangkok, from New York to New Delhi, are making everyday choices in ways that defy traditional logic. They are judging where and how their clothes were made, not just how they fit. They are thinking global but buying local.


    Steven Overman provides context, inspiration and some basic tools to help readers reframe how they evolve and grow whatever it is they lead—whether it’s a community, a business, a product, or a marketing campaign. From the boardroom to the startup loft, from the State Department to the pulsing marketplaces of the developing world, The Conscience Economy will help international leaders, influencers, investors and decision-makers to manage, innovate and thrive in a new world where “doing good” matters as much as “doing well.” Ignore it, and your consumer or voter base will rebel, using a host of free tools and cheap connectivity to spread their rejection to peers around the world in real time. Leverage it, and Conscience Culture is a wellspring of financial upside. Steven Overman recently joined Kodak as Chief Marketing Officer, where he will lead the renewal of one of the world’s biggest brands.
