I enjoyed Jack and Suzy Welch’s blog post the other day entitled, “You’re Getting Innovation All Wrong.”
Innovation is not something rare or exclusive. It’s part of finding a better way to do something.
It should be part of everyone’s job description and be an operating principle for every company and organization.
The real question to me is: why are so few companies about innovating? Why do so many companies (represented by their management teams) fail to reward improvements and success from their employees?
The truth is – even if your company does not focus on or foster an environment of innovation, there is no reason why each of us cannot adopt that value into our own core belief system. Striving to be an innovators gets our minds moving, energizes us and opens us to the kinds of experiences that we deserve.
