Stagnant Organisational Environments

 3 things you can do

1. Educate – flood the company with ideas, surround the company with ideas, brainstorming sessions without commitment to execute

2. Collaborate                                                                                                                        Seek similar thinking people within your organisation to create productive solutions

3. Demonstrate                                                                                                                          Take your own area of responsibility in a business or organisation and make it as excellent as possible.

Outcome: Opens peoples minds to advantageous opportunities       Add latest ideas, build a prototype

But what if the boss doesn’t let me?                                                                       You need courage as an innovator to take the calculated risks in order to reap the rewards.

Inertia

How can innovation drive change in Governments and other public bodies?

Advanced Leadership is much more about setting the climate in which new things can happen and acting on many fronts simultaneously.
