Don’t put yourself in a box

Successfully innovative companies know that they are more than just their products and services.

Instead of only defining your company by what it sells, identify your assets and strategic skills.

Whether it’s a weekly all-staff meeting or a company bulletin, foster a space where employees can meet across teams to discuss and present their research, experimentation or intrapreneurial ideas from their 15 % time.

The idea of innovation is taking off just as fast as the businesses that embrace it.

Encourage your team to do their own research as well. 

This allows employees to spend 15 % of their paid work time daydreaming, doodling or experimenting with ideas that don’t necessarily have to do with their work at the company.

An intrapreneur can be defined as someone who thinks like an entrepreneur but brings their ideas to the company where they are employed instead of launching their own business. 

Studies show that certain activities that foster a truly unplugged environment, such as hiking in nature, can actually boost creativity by up to 50 %.

Innovation starts at the top -- leaders should be role models for workplace passion, positive outlook, clear direction and vision, and of course, embracing change.

Get your employees to think outside the box by assigning them new and exciting projects outside the scope of their daily activities.

Beyond just giving your employees time to experiment, you should also reward innovative habits.
