Global Product Management Talk is pleased to bring you another episode of The Everyday Innovator.
The podcast is all about helping people involved in developing and managing products become more successful, grow their careers, and STANDOUT from their peers.
Our Guest: Karla Phlypo is an avid dreamer, builder, artist, and scholar. She holds a Ph.D. combining research in social innovation, knowledge management, and decision science. Her background is in automotive product engineering. Although she has many interests, the common thread is contributing to a culture of sharing and innovation through collaboration.
Highlights from the discussion include:
Karla studied how people participate in innovation environments (open, crowdsourcing, and collaborative communities)
Key contributors needed in innovation environments are solution providers that tend to be quiet (may not offer ideas until asked to do so), non-political, and boundary-less with a systems view
Organizational innovation is improved by knowledge managers who aid the flow of knowledge in an organization and identification of best practices
“Hardy perennials” are not flowers, but problems that keep showing up in product efforts that need to be pruned
Idea management systems that collect suggestions for employees can destroy trust when they don’t understand how their ideas are used – they can be counter-productive when not managed properly

Scottsdale, AZ – Studies confirm the importance of leadership development and the positive impact effective leaders can have on company performance. Organizations committed to leadership development often outperform their competition.
Margo Boster is the co-founder of ImpaQ Solutions, an organizational consulting firm concentrating on the people side of business. ImpaQ Solutions works with clients nationwide to improve business and organizational achievement while enhancing the experience of the people within those businesses. Margo specializes in providing effective leadership and management development that includes coaching, assessments and organizational support.
“Sometimes a business is successful, but they don’t understand why they’re successful and what they need to do to continue to succeed,” says Margo. “We work with companies to help them do more than they ever thought possible.”
When a company experiences rapid growth there may be a new team working together. People get promoted because they were good at what they did. But just because they were a good contributor or manager does not mean they’re going to be a good executive or leader. Margo says she’ll often be called in to an organization when a team is not working together cohesively and performing as well as they should.
“I was them. I was that manager. When I became a leader I learned the hard way. So it’s not theoretical to me. I understand it and relate,” says Margo. “I’m very good at listening and asking the right questions. A lot of what I do as a coach is to help them increase their awareness, willingness and skills.”

In many situations we see our decisions as an ‘either/or’ dilemma. Author and Ph.D. Bernie Mayer argues in his new book, The Conflict Paradox, Seven Dilemmas at the Core of Disputes, that the real challenge is to find a new path that incorporates both approaches. These apparently opposing conflict practices need not be mutually exclusive—in fact, each is necessary to the other.

Bernie has facilitated many complex environmental conflicts, commercial and organizational disputes, interpersonal conflicts, public decision-making processes, and has an extensive background in family mediation as well.

Jeff Becker has been a student of science most of his life. His world view was turned upside down when he started investigating extraterrestrial contact and experienced undeniable telepathic interactions with lights in the sky. Not one to deny the evidence, he continued to seek contact, organized a group of like-minded individuals, and has had amazing experiences for over six years. He’s also met many people with their own fascinating stories to tell.
Paths to Contact: True Stories from the Contact Underground, is about ordinary people having extraordinary experiences of extraterrestrial contact. These people are doctors, computer programmers, sanitation and postal workers, healers, meteorologists, biologists, pilots, artists, engineers – people from many different walks of life. They have each volunteered to tell their story of extraterrestrial contact and how it has affected their life.
When Becker floated the idea for this book project in December of 2011, the response from so many people eager to tell their stories convinced him that the project would be a success. This has been a team effort, with most people doing their own writing and telling their story in their own words. These are stories of amazing sightings, personal transformations, and even healings.
Most of these stories involve human initiated contact. That’s right, these are people who go out under the stars and ask for contact, and it happens with amazing reliability when done correctly. Perhaps these stories will inspire you to embark on your own path to contact.
While this is not a “how to” book, numerous resources are referenced in the book and even more can be found on the book website. For more information about this ongoing project, see www.pathstocontact.org.
