Conquering The Enemies of Innovation: Silence and Fear

Conquering The Enemies of Innovation: Silence and Fear | Innovation and Creativity in Leadership | Scoop.it
What's the biggest impediment to innovation within an organization? Fear.

As early as 2004, research from Elizabeth Wolf Morrison and Frances J. Milliken for the Academy of Management Review and Stern Business pegged fear — and the resulting silence when employees operate within a culture of fear — as the biggest roadblock to innovation.

A recent survey by the Robert Half Group confirms that in 2012, the problem remains. What makes employees afraid?

Patricia D. Sadar - Leadership Strength Coach's curator insight, December 11, 2012 10:03 PM

Great article!  It is crucial that your executive team creates an enviornment where you leave titles at the door.  All leaders much be coachable, and willing and open to listen to ideas, observations, and suggestions.

 

When fear is present, innovation and new ideas from all levels are absent.

Anne-Laure Delpech's curator insight, December 12, 2012 6:56 AM

Pour innover, il faudrait créer un environnement dans lequel les salariés n'auraient plus peur de s'exprimer, de proposer des idées et suggestions.

Great article on getting to what really matters in our world, on our planet, in 2012 and beyond.  Getting over the perpetual crisis mode that began a half decade ago.  "If you are weary pursuing the mirage--here's a secret: stop chasing it already.  The unasked gift of crisis, perhaps is this:  not to squander one's life hunched over in the dark, sweating to mine yesterday's fools' gold, but to navigate our ways, at last, towards humanity."

Ten Reasons People Resist Change

Ten Reasons People Resist Change | Innovation and Creativity in Leadership | Scoop.it
Leadership is about change, but what is a leader to do when faced with ubiquitous resistance? Resistance to change manifests itself in many ways, from foot-dragging and inertia to petty sabotage to outright rebellions. The best tool for leaders of change is to understand the predictable, universal sources of resistance in each situation and then strategize around them. Here are the ten I've found to be the most common.

Blog | Narrative Communications

Blog | Narrative Communications | Innovation and Creativity in Leadership | Scoop.it

What I didn’t realize at the time was that by naming my business ‘Narrative’ I would find myself on a journey I never expected. My name has led me to people who study narrative therapy and leadership, to conflict resolution specialists and mediators, it has even led me to performance artists around the world who recognize the art form of storytelling. My business is expanding to include new ideas and new ways of building narrative. I am working with clients who understand the need to focus on the internal state of their organization while at the same time sending messages out to the general public through websites, video and twitter.

 

Corporate Storytelling can be a powerful tool that can build bridges and help people see eye to eye within an organization. My role is to bring different groups together and use the simple, yet often neglected, role of storytelling to help people connect at a more personal and emotional level.
