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!
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.

Steve Jobs, said that, creativity is just connecting things. When you ask creative people how they did something, they feel a little guilty because they didn't really do it, they just saw something. It seemed obvious to them after a while. That's because they were able to connect experiences they've had and synthesize new things. Renee Hopkins, the moderator of #innochat is our first guest for the creativity series and will co-host the remainder of the series. We will explore the role that creativity plays in innovation and how important it is the success of innovators...and innovation. Please join us as we put Renee in the hotseat!
Denise Griffitts Interviews James M. Kerr
A rapidly shifting and complex economy is ushering in a global restructuring of the business world. In order to keep their organizations vital for the future, executives must respond to this new commercial age by re-imaging their organizations' structures, enhancing product and service offerings, and leveraging emerging technological capabilities.
Today I am speaking with James Kerr. He is is a management consultant, organizational behaviorist and partner at BlumShapiro. He specializes in strategic planning, corporate transformation, and project and program development. Consulting with many Fortune 100 firms, he has worked with diverse organizations as The Home Depot, JP Morgan Chase, Mitsui Sumitomo, IBM, and the Joint Chiefs of Staff.
James is the author of The Executive Checklist (Palgrave Macmillan, 2014) as well as three other business texts.
In The Executive Checklist: A Guide for Setting Direction and Managing Change, James provides a primer for how to set direction and manage change within the 21st century enterprise and he is here to share examples of new organizational concepts being implemented in businesses today and how it's helping them to be better and stay better.
Today, James is going to share some great stories about his work with companies that we all know, love or loathe.

Are you and I an Antient or a Modern? If a better, improved hammer or a chisel harder and resistant to dulling blows, was handed to a craftsman even Christoper Wren was happy with the result. In the old days, a lot of wives died during childbirth. Rooms were cold and not so long ago. Voice and note but no wireless; no power brakes, or power steering. Would we give up LED lights, A/C and safety equipped cars when our loved ones drive off?
Sometimes I flirt with the idea that actually understand why the old boys codifed their local ways into Charges and Constitution. It occurred to me that some freemasons have been happy to innovate by replacing the first Local Traditions with their own. It's a thought I can't get out of my mind. And it is why I must be an Antient because I'm beginning to see LT's as unwanted innovations. Changing the first LT's is changing the ways. Bloody hell! Moderns are everywhere but being an Antient feels right. The first LT's were created by early craftsman. By perserving them, I feel a singular connection that isn't there with LT's only 20, 30 or 50 years old. If the 'modern' LT's were a revival of the first LT's then I'm good with them. But they aren't. Masonic history still tells the stories and explains the old traditions. And I like that a lot. Modern LT's is printing money with limited value.
I am not going to throw myself on a sword to protect them, but I won't support new LTs. The older boys aren't around anymore to reclaim their concerns. But some freemasons are restoring the old walls, setting one stone at a time. There is a need to use the newest tools to keep our Lodges in touch- of course. Have at it, but protect the first local traditions and keep the connection alive.
