The Entrepreneurial You interviews Tamara Kleinberg

 

The Entreprenurial You Tamara Kleinberg

Building a Culture of Innovation, Moving Ideas From the Conference Room to Execution

 

To break the ice, I asked Tamara, whether she’d rather be an apple or a banana?

Her response, “Oh my gosh. I would rather be an apple, I love apples. I don’t think there is anything better than biting into a crisp apple”.

Tamara told me all about innovation and how to execute on ideas successfully.

 

Some questions we discussed throughout the interview are:

What is the greatest barrier to innovation?

When you say innovation what are you actually talking about?

Why do most ideas die before leaving the conference room?

What is the innovation quotient edge and how can we use it to get results?

What’s the one thing I can do right now to up my innovation quotient?

What are those innovation killers for individuals and organizations?

Main Take-Aways:

When you have a culture of innovation, it makes it easier for you on the back end. If you think about all those struggles, challenges that keep coming back – most likely it’s because you’re just churning through it with the same type of solutions.

People are happy and excited to hear your ideas and disrupted thinking. The ones that aren't, aren't because of their own insecurities.

The Innovation Quotient Edge tells you your unique innovative archetype so you can innovate on demand.
