Citation: "Let us be clear: No human group can survive, let alone effectively cooperate, without being able to develop a shared outlook on the world which is the precondition for acting together. But it is also the case that social groups thrive by making room for plurality, dissenting voices, and different perspectives."

Innovation Isn't Just About New Products

Innovation Isn't Just About New Products | Mindful Leadership & Intercultural Communication | Scoop.it

Innovation intent must be vividly clear for everyone in your organization, especially at the top. The intent must be concise to help drive alignment to business initiatives and must help articulate specific employee behaviors necessary at all levels for an innovation climate to take root. When designed correctly, innovation intent is clearly linked to and driven by the business strategy.

Roberto Abramovich's curator insight, October 4, 2013 5:11 AM

Its difficult to talk about innovation capabilities without falling into cliches. If there is one which is true is the C-level sponsorship, namely CEO and peers. There are so many barriers that hinder the ability of a group to trully innovate, that if there isnt a strong support from top this just doesn't happen. Good ideas get killed to "sustain" initiatives, like line extensions and other limited impact activities.

"Employees are tired of excuses and just want people to be real about how they feel and honest about what needs to be accomplished.   Employees are fed up with the office politics and corporate rat-race and  are ready to start having fun again.   They want a workplace that is challenging, encourages trial and error and makes them feel that they matter."

John Michel's curator insight, September 24, 2013 12:54 PM

Employees want an awakened, dynamic spirit to come alive at work.  They are tired of excuses and just want people to be real about how they feel and honest about what needs to be accomplished.

John Michel's curator insight, October 9, 2013 1:43 PM

True listeners look beyond the words themselves—they search for meaning in the speaker’s tone and body language. This is especially important when the communication has an emotional component.

Estelblau's curator insight, October 9, 2013 2:57 PM

How do interpreters really listen? What do you think about it?

 

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, October 10, 2013 7:03 PM

Listening and prayer share etymological roots. Deep listening is a quality of a servant-leader and mindful leadership.

MyKLogica's curator insight, October 2, 2013 4:13 AM

Un buen artículo sobre cómo ayudar a conseguir una mayor involucración de los colaboradores con la empresa, ahora bien, hemos de tener en cuenta que dicha "storytelling" ha de ir acompañada por algo más que una narración interesante. De nada sirve hablar sobre los sueños del fundador, dónde queremos llegar ... si después en el día a día, el storytelling se convierte en una "telling de miedo, abusos, desprecios ...".

 

El verdadero arte de una involucración de este tipo, es cuando se integra en el ADN de la empresa y no son sólo los "líderes" quienes te lo cuentan, sino los propios compañeros porque es una vivencia y experiencia diaria.
