- 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.
