Why we often get stuck in our own path and how to get out of it.
Everybody wants innovation and change, but most people don’t break from the path that they’re on. Why is getting stuck in our own path such a challenge when it comes to innovating and how can we get out of it? Jeremy Gutsche joins me on this episode to share some of his insights about developing disruptive thinking, both individually and at the organizational level.
Jeremy Gutsche is the founder of TrendHunter, a global crowdsourcing platform that helps you spot and understand trends. He is also a New York Times bestselling author and has just released his latest book, Create the Future: Tactics for Disruptive Thinking. Jeremy’s forward-thinking mind and ability to connect the dots in insightful ways is unique and he helps shed new light on the challenge of innovation.
What do horse butts have to do with rocket ships? Jeremy reveals how dependent we are on our past decisions, why that translates into people getting caught in their own path instead of finding the other paths of opportunity, and how looking at the problem from a different perspective can help you break out of that rut. We also dive into managing innovation like a stock portfolio, why disruptive ideas move slowly until the knockout punch, and how we can change our environment to produce better, more innovative ideas.
