    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.

    Healthcare Innovation Through The Lens Of Abundance: Ayelet Baron

    in Business

    One of the biggest challenges in healthcare is that we are still using practices that are stuck in the 1900s.  Ayelet Baron, Futurist and Chief Instigator at Simplifying Work is our guest today and we are going to take a deep dive into the concept of abundance and its impact on healthcare. Think back to the 19th century, where we did not have enough, and lived in a world of scarcity driven by economic depression and war; we had to take from others and had a deficiency mindset. In the 20th century we reshaped management practices based on scarcity where we needed to compete to survive, and now the 21st century, with a mindset of abundance, we discover unique opportunities to create new markets, products and services. 


    Healthcare is part of the mix because it is scrambling to meet new expectations from the informed consumer.   Organizations that make a commitment to thinking from a perspective of abundance will optimize strategies by collaborating across industry walls and including the voice of the healthcare consumer to continuously generate and manage insights.  Ayelet will share where the concept of abundance is in play and making an impact. Please join us as we put Ayelet in the innovation hot seat

    Smart Change: Dr. Art Markman

    in Spirituality

    How can you release harmful habits and foster beneficial ones? How can you influence the creation or ending of habits in others? Art Markman, Ph.D., shares insights from his new book Smart Change: Five Tools to Create New and Sustainable Habits in Yourself and Others.


    The key to changing habits is leveraging the power of the brain rather than fighting against it. Only then can we bring lasting behavior changes into our lives and the lives of others. Dr. Markman provides real, accessible advice for change based on understanding how the habit system works. Building upon the insights explored in his earlier book Smart Thinking, Dr. Markman provides a deeper understanding of how to unleash the power of the mind.


    Art Markman, Ph.D. is the Annabel Irion Worsham Centennial Professor of Psychology and Marketing at the University of Texas and founding director of the Human Dimensions of Organizations program there. Also the author of Habits of Leadership, he blogs regularly for Psychology Today, The Huffington Post, 99U and Harvard Business Review Online.
