Dr Stephen Lundin, PhD, author of FISH! & Top Performer

Today I had the pleasure of hearing this top author & public speaker share CATS - the nine lives of innovation.

In addition to the 9 lives, he shared his learnings on innovation:
  • The goal is to simplify, not complicate

  • Everything starts with an idea, then taking a risk, then the action

  • Mind mapping is a powerful tool

  • Innovative firms are playful & light-hearted

  • Innovation happens on the 'edge' (different disciplines getting together)

  • Be uncomfortable

  • Engaging with others builds energy

  • Use "provocation" to create energy

  • Mix with unlikely partners
