Fri Mar 24 2017 (57:52)

Innovation…do you have what it REALLY takes to lead from a place of innovation? Our guests on this episode are Andrew & Gaia Grant. This husband and wife team are co-founders and executive directors of Tirian International Consultancy. they are the co-authors of the international bestseller “Who Killed Creativity?”, and their brand new book: The Innovation Race: How to Change a Culture to Change the Game They have designed and produced more than 30 leadership resources and programs which they use with their Fortune 500 clients. On this episode we will examine: * What cultures around the world are the most innovative and what can American business learn from them? * Why open offices, ideas boxes and hackathons don’t automatically lead to innovation. * How leaders can support both disruptive innovation and incremental innovation within their organizations, and be mindful to not put too much focus on one or the other. * How and why leaders and businesses must become “ambi-dexterous” – cope with the pace of change through exploration, and also maintain business viability by exploiting resources they have. * Fresh ideas from the fringe – what outsiders can contribute to innovation.
