Top 3 creativity and innovation priorities?

Disney Creativity Keynote Speaker
Most creative improvements happen on the front line. Small, low-cost to no-cost iterations that continuously improve things over time. Cast experience improvements. Customer experience improvements. Business-financial improvements. And of course, leadership improvements.

A leader and a direct report are paired and each has a Post-it note. The leader writes the top three creativity and innovation priorities she expects of her direct report. And the direct report writes the top three creativity and innovation priorities she thinks the leader expects from her.

What are the odds the lists match?

The entire point of clarity with expectations, priorities, and accountability comes down to scaling a winning formula. As employees become leaders, and as employees and leaders move around within an organization, the core mission, and the structure and processes to maintain and improve the mission are your cultural bedrock.

World-Class Organizational Vibrancy

Making selfies unique (cool?).

World-Class Organizational Vibrancy.

Self-aware, driven, and determined CEO’s understand the competitive immunity Organizational Vibrancy provides them.

Common sense is valuable but only when applied. And the commitment to the application is what drives your level of excellence. Smart leaders understand this intuitively. Smart leaders understand that the long way is the short cut.

You want to make your Organization a great place work, a great place for customers to do business, and a great place for shareholders to invest long term.

Want to know the incalculable value of a vibrant culture? Contrast it with a culture that never approaches vibrancy, an organization that is continuously reacting to stresses, challenges, and missed opportunities.

Regret tells the truth. Change tells the story.
