I’ve been getting some questions from people in the Free Innovation Workshop about the Everyday Innovators Tribe membership program, designed to unlock your innovation potential, create massive impact, and help you lead strong in your team or organization. I wanted to tackle these questions and give you some insights about what the program is all about, and how you stand to benefit from it.

 

I dig into these five questions:

  1. I’m not on FB much. Will I get value if I’m not on it?

  2. How do I buy for my team?

  3. Does my team member need to be a certain level (e.g. leadership level) to join the Everyday Innovators Tribe?

  4. If I feel totally lacking in innovation or creativity — will the Everyday Innovators Tribe help me change that?

  5. Why is the price so low given how much you get? I'm suspicious — do I have to buy in every time I do a jam session or a Q&A?

 

Such great questions, and I think you’ll be surprised by some of my answers!

 

If you are ready to:

  • get buy-in from key decision-makers on your next big idea

  • be a high-impact, high-value member that ignites change

  • foster a culture of innovation where everyone on your team is bringing innovative ideas that tackle challenges and seize opportunities…

2020 has been a year like no other, and we only have just over a quarter of the year left. So much that is happening is out of our control — the pandemic, the economy, working from home, the elections — but despite everything that has happened so far, we can still finish the year strong. What’s more, we can start 2021 strong. What we need to do is to focus on our own abilities to innovate, influence, and make an impact.

To help you do that, I’ve launched the Everyday Innovator’s Tribe and a free innovation workshop to help you become a better leader and innovator by giving you the tools to apply innovation to your world.

I want to share seven key things participants are saying about the workshop, the content in there, and about being a part of the Everyday Innovators Tribe, including how people feel empowered to take action with the real-world tactics and exercises I share, how they are influencing others and getting noticed, and how they are now able to pivot fast and effectively to see and take advantage of new opportunities.

  • be a high-impact, high-value member that ignites change

  • foster a culture of innovation where everyone on your team is bringing innovative ideas that tackle challenges and seize opportunities…

Would you like to know what the future holds? You already have the answers within your organization — you just have to know where to look, and how to listen. Geoff Thatcher explains how we can all get into the CEO’s Time Machine to start innovating the future.

Geoff Thatcher is Founder and Chief Creative Officer of Creative Principals, and an experienced designer. Since the age of 14, he has worked at theme parks, museums, and visitors centers and focuses on experiences. When the pandemic hit, Geoff’s main business had to hit pause, but he took the opportunity to bring to life a book he had been sitting on for some time — The CEO’s Time Machine.

The only way to invent the future is to go there and then look back. To Geoff, it's a matter of perspective. He explains his approach to helping people shift their perspective from the anchors that are holding them in today, to something in the future, and why it’s so important to hear others and be heard. Geoff shares why he believes we need to listen to young people and avoid shutting them down, how to set expectations in innovation, and why the future is truly only limited by our perspective, our imagination, and our creativity.

How can you become a better leader and innovator? The three keys to your success are in focusing on innovation, influence, and impact. By focusing on bringing these three things to life, you can ensure that you will go further, faster.

Innovation is all about thinking differently about what’s right in front of you to create an advantage. It’s something we talk about very often on LaunchStreet, and I share some of my strategies to unlock your innovation.

Innovative ideas are nothing if you do not get buy-in from others to execute and implement these ideas. That’s where influence comes in. It’s really all about communicating ideas and including them in the process of innovation and igniting innovation in those around you.

The last key is Impact, which is the value you create. By being an indispensable member of your team, and being the person whose ripple effect can be felt across your world, you can unlock your own success.

I share more about these three keys to your success as well as some real-life examples from our tribe, so be sure to tune in.

In an effort to drive innovation and create accountability for innovation, many companies have established a dedicated innovation team that is solely responsible for innovation. The unintended consequence of that is that everybody else in the team or organization gets the message that they're not innovative and their ideas don't matter. The unintended consequences of siloing innovation are not only that people become discouraged and disengaged, but we’re also leaving a lot of human potential on the table. In addition to that, when it comes to implementation, it can be a challenge to get buy-in from people who have had no say in the innovation process.

How can we avoid the negative consequences of siloing innovation while still having accountability? As leaders, we need to be moving away from being the “doers” of innovation and become “enablers” of innovation. We need to create jobs that allow space for innovation and give our team members the resources and tools to innovate. I also share a little about how an innovation feedback loop can help, and how we can create this shift away from innovation occurring in silos.
