The Seed of Innovation
How to Foster Extraordinary Possibility in Others

Let's cut to the chase: Innovation doesn't begin with processes. It begins with people — inspired, committed, and collaborative people.

When people are in the right mindset, your company has thousands of daily, spontaneously occurring opportunities for innovation to take root. All too often, however, these opportunities are missed.

Why? Because they are usually invisible to people. Like the rarely seen white arrow in the FedEx logo, people have a hard time seeing what's right in front of them — the opportunity to identify, spark, and co-develop promising new ideas.

The Seed of Innovation teaches people how to create the conditions that radically increase the odds of bold, new ideas being identified, nurtured, and developed on the fly.

It does so not by requiring people to add another initiative to their already maxed out schedule, but by leveraging the countless interactions they are already having on the job — in hallways, elevators, parking lots, lunchrooms, bathrooms, conference rooms, and cubicles.

Includes:

  • The art of listening
  • Best innovation practices from leading organizations
  • Teaching and practice of LCS (idea feedback tool)
  • Seven ways to maximize the seed of innovation moment
  • Free annual license of Free the Genie (online brainstorming tool)


    "Thank you! As a result of your efforts, I now have the most highly motivated, self-driven, creative and fun team this division has seen in recent history."
Karen Buczek, Marketing Manager, General Mills
