If there is one takeaway from my journey into the world of innovation, it’s that truly successful innovation requires courage and the willingness to let go of uncertainty.
Welcome back to the Innovators Academy – a behind-the-scenes, unscripted backstory of what it means to be innovative and how an organization like Better Business Bureau can make it happen. For the past month our cohort had two jobs – ideate and identify waste.
And by waste, I mean duplicated processes, inefficiencies and bottlenecks – the processes that plague instead of propel good intentions. For our team of innovators, waste was surprisingly not hard to find, and the solutions on how to correct them came pouring in.Read More

An Open Conversation About Women in Leadership
It was 7:45 a.m. on a Tuesday. My team and I were waiting on participants for a breakfast meetup we had organized at a global conference. The topic was Women in Leadership.
The meetup was meant to be an open, candid conversation about the state of women in leadership. But the event description included something you don’t often see for these types of meetups: “Men, we hope you’ll join us.”
That morning, our space filled quickly. We brought in more tables and chairs, and yet people still kept coming. The room was packed. We had attendees from all over the world, each with different backgrounds and experiences. The diversity in the room was beautiful.

A personal journey into the world of innovation and what it might mean for your business.
Few things can be scarier than challenging ourselves and our preconceived notions. Yet, fewer things can be more rewarding.
This is my behind the scenes, unscripted back story of how I challenged myself and staff. We tore down our preconceived notions and learned what it means to be innovative and how even a 107-year-old organization like BBB can make it happen.
Trust me, I get it. I’ve found myself in numerous situations where I felt like a fish out of water, grappling with an abstract idea or concept. It’s uncomfortable – especially if you’re a process freak like me!Read More

These days you hear and read a lot about innovation. It’s a common buzzword and there are constantly new articles and blogs written about it, but most of it is simply a rehashing of what has been written in the past. There’s very little new thought going into innovation, which is ironic if you think about it.
This is part of the reason Dr. Evans Baiya and I decided to write The Innovator’s Advantage. We wanted to share with leaders the link between innovation and people that we discovered through our work in innovation with our clients.
For effective leadership, innovation is not an option. Successful innovation requires leaders to have equal amounts of dedication to the process and new ways of thinking about people. Read More

Every idea has potential, so if right now you have a single idea, that is a start. In many cases, the full potential of an idea is not evident and may not be fund in the original problem it was intended to solve. This means you cannot put restrictions on the ideas; understand and acknowledge each idea and its potential without limiting its application.
A common mistake that kills potentially great innovations is the abandonment of ideas or projects if the desired outcomes are not met the first time after implementation. In other cases, innovative ideas are prematurely judged to be abandoned based on past experiences. Past experiences do not always guarantee current or future failures since the times, circumstances, team compositions, market conditions, etc., keep changing. Read More
