    Day 17: Set the stage for innovation

    November 29, 2007 2178 Views

    An excerpt from Chapter 17 of Change is Good…You Go First:

    Stage Door

    Linus Pauling said, "The best way to get a good idea is to get lots of ideas." Not rocket science, but it works! The only way to keep a change culture alive, long-term, is to set the stage for innovation. Kevin Kelley, in his book, New Rules for the New Economy, said

    "Wealth today flows directly from innovation, not optimization. It is not gained by perfecting the known, but by imperfectly seizing the unknown."

    Tomorrow comes at us with lightning speed, and your competitive advantage is a fleeting thing. As leaders, we must create an environment that puts innovation front and center. Your people must know it is the key to you company's survival. You must create a climate that rewards risk and creative effort. Your people must not fear mistakes, but understand that honest mistakes can be life's main source for learning.
