Leverage and get value out of differences.

Each and every one of us is different. We have different perspectives, different styles of innovation, and different approaches to tackling problems. Yet, it is often the case that these differences are a cause of friction because we are so focused on being harmonious and avoiding conflict. We fail to leverage and get value out of the differences that each of us brings to the table.

When we don’t take the time to understand this friction that exists and our unique perspectives, it can bog us down. When we understand that each of us brings our own unique style of thinking, we can turn that into our competitive advantage to elevate our solutions and strengthen innovation.

I share more about the Everyday Innovator Style — a combination of nine different ways of innovating that are different for each of us. Through some examples from my own experiences, I explain what happens when we do not understand how each of us innovates — we have a hard time valuing that type of innovation. I also have some examples of how you can bring more innovation to your team and organization, just by understanding and working with everyone’s differences.
