Getting clarity to kickstart innovation.

We all think about creativity and innovation differently, and we often use them interchangeably without even thinking about it. Unfortunately, not having a clear definition makes being innovative feel out of reach for everyday people, creates misunderstandings around expectations and outcomes, and makes it difficult to communicate and collaborate.

I want to clear up the confusion between creativity and innovation, and about innovation itself. This definition of innovation will change the game for you and empower you to be the innovator that you’re meant to be and ignite innovation in your team. So, the way I distinguish creativity and innovation is to think about creativity as the pursuit of artistic endeavors, while innovation is thinking differently about what's right in front of you to create an advantage. I explain why this definition works and how it can be applied to your own workplace, as well as how this definition takes away that "out-of-the-box" fear that most of us have.

I'm also releasing a special 4-Part Innovation Workshop in September where I cover:

1) How to be a confident innovator (how to overcome internal resistors to change)

2) The language of innovation (how to get buy-in for your ideas)

3) The culture of innovation (how to ignite innovation in your team)

4) Bonus!
