Fireplace or fireworks – which describes your business and innovation thinking?
Is this really what you want from your business? To constantly tend and feed a fireplace that absorbs you, entices you, continues to demand you stand vigilant over it at all times and forces you to rebuild it back to its former glory, every time it starts to wane or diminish.
Today’s businesses, and those that will succeed into the future, are more like fireworks, agile; scanning the sky and looking ahead; constantly predicting, changing and adapting to the environment; exponentially growing and collaboratively building towards a strategized crescendo always knowing that there is another fireworks display just over the horizon.
In the last 3 months I have worked with and surveyed thousands of CEO’s in Australia and New Zealand and found that 84% of them admit that their business, products and practices are fireplaces that haven’t substantially changed in the last 3 years with a further 89% conceding that they would like to be firework businesses, but don’t know how and where to begin.
So for all my fellow firework business owners I’ve dedicated the next three months of FREE webinars to guiding you through the how, why, where, when and who of firework business innovation.
Next Monday 13th May at 1.00 p.m. AEST we’ll start our hands-on journey together through the first of three phases of innovation and I’ll show you, give you examples of and share my tools with you as we explore how to:
1. grow a self-sustaining innovation culture and forward thinking business
2. know and harness your own unique innovation DNA
3. exploit the innovation that already exists around you
4. ask for and get innovation happening around you
5. get others to do your innovating for you, and
6. learn the only question you’ll ever need to ask to profitably kick start your innovation
I’ve developed, tried and perfected my unique secret-sauce blended innovation and foresight process over the last 32 years with solopreneuers, entrepreneurs, business owners, corporations, governments and fellow innovators around the globe and it continues to evolve and to always achieve incredible and profitable innovation and foresight results.
One of these extraordinary projects happened late last year where I embedded the foundations and seeds of an innovation culture across a client’s 900 plus employees; empowered and educated them into the purpose, imperative and methods of innovation; built transparent innovation capture processes and then set the employees free to evolve the company into what they believed it should become.
Within four months they had added $10.4 million of new thinking, products, services and changed work practices and we have only begun to stare into the sky and watch the fireworks go off.
Stop getting lukewarm by the dwindling fire and start getting exhilarated by the infinite possibilities of the fireworks, join me next Monday and let’s start innovating your sky.
Last month we had a record crowd online, so please join our ever growing tribe of Webinar Wisdom Warriors.
All you need is an inquisitive mind, a passionate desire to know what’s over the horizon and a computer screen.
