The Hidden Innovation Barriers: Company Culture and your Brain | Innovation Management | Organisational Leadership | Scoop.it
When you ask Executives what they want beyond short profit and revenue growth they’ll likely say ‘more innovation’. Why? Because they face unprecedented business challenges. Let’s look back. The current modern corporation was invented about 100 years ago – at the start of the 20th century. That’s when the big companies were born like the US railroad companies, US Steel, the big banks, IG Farben. Some exist still today (GE).

Perhaps with the shift in ethos coming with the millennial workforce there will be a deeper understanding that innovation is a cultural value that encompasses many different and interdependent conditions. It's ironic that these same thoughts were stated by Mary Parker Follett in "The Creative Experience pub. 1930 when she said: “Through circular response we are creating each other all of the time. . .  ‘I’ can never influence ‘you’ because you have already influenced me.”

Gallup surveys show that when people have positive interactions and close friends on the job, they will be significantly more engaged in their work (not to mention more productive and effective) than those who do not. Employees want to feel a sense of belonging at work--that people care about them, and that they are doing meaningful work.

Angie Mc's curator insight, February 10, 2014 11:50 PM

This same logic can be applied to families. Consider teens who feel no sense of optimism,  authenticity, belonging and meaning in their families.

Cramming every bit of information into a speech should never be the objective. So besides going over the main points, be sure to repeat yourself, constantly.

Graeme Reid's curator insight, February 10, 2014 7:42 PM

Some good advice for making a presentation.  The best advice is keep it simple and remember that you are telling a story not downloading information.

Emeric Nectoux's curator insight, February 16, 2014 1:36 AM

Always good to remember...


Here is one of the four:


Keep it Simple 

Every speech should be distilled to the simplest points so your audience will be able to retain the information. "When you see someone with 100 different bullet points on the slide," that's boring, says Holman. "Follow the rule of threes ... a simple grouping of things is much more powerful."

Influence is becoming more and more challenging.  It’s hard enough to attract attention, much less retain it or use that attention to shape the behavior of others. And yet, in a world of scarce resources and mounting pressure, the ability to influence others becomes more and more central to the ability to set big things in motion.
