"Diversity of thinking is critical to all four stages of a typical innovation process: problem identification, idea generation, exploration of potential solutions, and implementation.
Organizations best leverage differences when they identify and match the strengths of particular styles with each of the four stages of innovation."

Every offering is customized for your specific training, speaking, or consulting needs. Customization includes examples and/or challenges specific to your team. Every offering is highly interactive and uses the proven principles of adult learning. We'll work together but I won't take any more of your time than you have to offer. For example, if we're having an innovation training workshop or event, we can use your real-world problem or desire when we practice the innovation techniques. This increases learner engagement and further... your return on investment is greater when you have real-world ideas and actions from your participants.
If you don't see exactly what you're interested below, I always customize so we can precisely meet your needs.
