Tips to help create an innovative culture

  • Engage and empower the entire team. Everyone in your organization should feel empowered to unleash his or her entrepreneurial spirit.
  • Suspend judgment. Identify “the good” in the ideas instead.
  • “Fail big, but fail soon.” Team members must also know that they have permission to fail.  Sometimes you must move quickly and you can’t always play it safe.
  • Set a good example. Take time to connect, mentor and develop your team members. Inspire them to create, look for new approaches and think outside the box.
  • Pay attention to the details. Designate specific goals, projects, times and expectations. These types of details ensure the innovation process doesn’t turn into a time suck.
  • Don’t forget about the physical environment. The physical environment people are in can influence how they feel, think and interact and can impact the quality and quantity in the innovation process.

Being A Great Listener

  • Focus on what’s being said instead of how it affects you or what you want to say.
  • Put away your phone. It’s rude and multitasking takes away from comprehension.

Listening influences up to 40% of a leader’s job performance

Beyond the spoken words, the tone of voice, body language, and what isn’t said also convey valuable information.

But most people overrate their listening skills.
