Three Critical Innovation Roles: Broker, Role Model, Risk-Taker

Three Critical Innovation Roles:  Broker, Role Model, Risk-Taker | #BetterLeadership | Scoop.it

Innovation comes from informal key leadership roles. Brokers, Role Models and Risk-takers are the engine of innovation cultures.

AlGonzalezinfo's insight:

Excellent scoop Kenneth.  I had a good exchange with the author about  failures being less the result of risk-taking, and more of ineptitude, as I disagreed with this. 


He clarified what he meant, in case anyone has a similar reaction.


This is an extremely relevant article.

Thanks for sharing!
Stephane Bilodeau's curator insight, August 10, 2013 9:14 AM

"You won’t find these functions described in job descriptions, nor will you find someone with a title like “risk-taker.”  You won’t find these roles being incentivized, or formally evaluated or even recognized, as a rule.   Like many aspects of an innovation culture, they happen – serendipitously – or they don’t.  And because the roles are elusive and difficult to measure, they can go unappreciated and unnoticed.  And then they gradually fade away.


But if you look hard in your organization, trust your own judgment, and use your best observational skills, you can find, nurture, and acknowledge these key individuals and keep their critical skill sets alive . . . and growing."

We should never speak theoretically about empathy :-) Empathy is a practice!
