TEDx: How We Deny Innovation

Innovation! Isn’t it Great?!

We just love talking about innovation and thinking about innovation, and tweeting about innovation. But we actually suck at it, for entirely human reasons. There are 3 things we need to understand about our own humanness in order for us to unleash our own potential (and the potential of our organizations):

- How we deny power to ideas,

- What bias looks like in every day life, and

- How we hold ideas to allow them to be big (or not).

The future is owned by those who know how to innovate. And when it comes to work, the key how is whether we allow ideas to be brought to force, and embraced, and built into something bigger than what any one person can create …

These are the things that will let you be innovative, and your organization to compete.
