    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.

    Linda Hill- Collective Genius: The Art and Practice of Leading Innovation

    in Business

    Collective Genius: The Art and Practice of Leading Innovation by Linda Hill


    This on demand audio series is a part of the Executive Girlfriends Group Vignette Series. Chicke Fitzgerald interviews Linda Hill. The original live interview was 4/10/15.


    At the heart of innovation is a paradox: you have to unleash the talents and passions of many people, yet you have to harness them into a work that is actually useful. Management professor Linda Hill offers three keys to overcoming this paradox and building a truly innovative organization. If you want a more innovative organization, you may need to change the way you lead.


    Great leaders of innovation don’t fit the conventional mold of “good” leadership. They’re not visionaries who set direction and inspire others to follow. Instead, they create the context in which others are both willing and able to innovate. As one leader said, “My job is to set the stage, not to perform on it.”


    This is the key insight gleaned by the authors of Collective Genius who, led by Harvard leadership scholar Linda Hill, spent a decade studying leaders of innovative firms in the US, Europe, India, and Asia, including such companies as Pixar, Google, Volkswagen, HCL Technologies, IBM, and the Sungjoo Group.

    CUTV News Radio spotlights Toni Newman of The Innovation Advantage

    in Business

    Kirkland, Quebec – There’s a difference between customer service and customer experience. When a customer’s experience exceeds their expectations, they become excited about doing business with you.


    We can do things better or we can do things different, but better isn’t good enough anymore. Better keeps you in the game; different gets you ahead of the game. If you can create an innovative customer experience, you will attract more customers. The more customers you can engage, the more stories they will tell. They become your built-in marketing force.


    Toni Newman is a five time award-winning business owner and the founder of The Innovation Advantage, where she specializes in helping businesses turn innovative customer experiences into a competitive advantage.


    “I’ve spent the last 10 years creating a body of knowledge around innovation and customer experience. That’s where we believe the competitive advantage is today,” says Toni. “You can innovate products, processes, but your competition can copy you five minutes later. The competitive advantage is how you create innovative customer experiences that people will share, talk about and remember, so you can grow your business.”


    What do the things we consider innovative have in common? According to Toni, an innovative customer experience is surprising, strategic, seductive, sustainable and simple. These 5’s represent the Innovation Advantage’s core philosophy; it’s not only their formula for success but the means by which you can evaluate if what you’re doing is innovative before you invest capital into it.


    “One of the key things I talk about is being outrageously courageous. Dare to be different,” says Toni.
