Welcome to the launch of Women Who Innovate! Our inaugural guest is the renowned Vivek Wadhwa, who has been relentless in the pursuit of getting more women involved in innovation. The purpose of this radio show is to provide a platform where the voices of women innovators can be heard. I could not be more honored that Vivek is opening up a subject that I am passionate on – inspiring women to get out of their comfort zones and innovate. A few things about Vivek – in 1999, was named a “leader of tomorrow” by Forbes magazine; in 2012 was named one of six 2012 Outstanding American by Choice” recipients and was recognized by Foreign Policy magazine as a Top 100 Global Thinker. In 2013, was named to Time magazine’s list of the Top 40 Most Influential Minds in Tech. Join us as Vivek shares with us his groundbreaking crowdsourced campaign on gathering innovation stories from women!
Innovation Women is an online speakers bureau for entrepreneurial and technical women that help women get visibility for themselves, their careers and companies. We help event managers gender-balance the speakers at their conferences, trade shows and events. Founder Bobbie Carlton will discuss the importance of elevating the voice of women in innovation and business.
Bobbie will also discuss Innovation Nights, which started just outside of Boston as Mass Innovation Nights (“MIN” -- supporting Massachusetts companies), and has launched more than 650 new products; she will share that every month 10 companies launch new products at a local event and the social media community comes out to support their local entrepreneurs and more! Please join Renee, Wanda, and Lea as we put Bobbie in the Innovaiton hotseat!
Ashley Tappan and Jessica Pfennig will share their insights and personal stories on the importance of being fit to lead and the relationship to being an effective leader. Both Jessica and Ashley are influential through both net and sweat working, but neither randomly decided to get in shape; they both took charge and became leaders...and now influence others to do the same. They set SMART goals, develop programs, and, manage to run triathlons. Please join us as we connet the dots between leadership, innovation, and fitness.

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.

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.
From Harvard to Stanford, from Yale to Wharton, today's scholars are taught to recognize the value of learning to critically think, problem solve, and innovate. In fact, the top 100 U.S. companies practice these rudiments to help their organizations profitably compete within their specific market sector (industry). Entrepreneurs must dynamically be able to acquire a core capability to expertly think, problem solve, and innovate in order to sustain a competitive advantage and maintain a healthy and evolving business. That is our focus on this edition of, “The Strategist Radio LIVE."
