May Virtual Monthly Talk - Courageous Cultures: I.D.E.A. Inspiration Summit

Talking Points & Agenda:

In this time of extraordinary uncertainty and change, your team has learned to quickly adapt to do the best they can, with what they have, from where they are. You’ve seen what can be done, despite constraints, as you worked to find creative, sometimes even Herculean solutions to serve your customers while keeping everyone safe.

As we look beyond this immediate crisis to establish a new normal, how will you leverage this spirit of micro-innovation, problem solving, and customer advocacy on your team?

Karin and David’s research shows that employees have game-changing ideas but frequently don’t speak up to share them. Don't risk returning to “business as usual” and waste money and miss opportunities to make your project teams better.

We’ll draw on our techniques from our new book, Courageous Cultures: How to Build Teams of Micro-Innovator’s Problem Solvers and Customer Advocates.
