There is a formula to gaining a competitive advantage, and it is simple – Speed, Agility and Focus. But complexity is holding most organizations back from creating a culture that embraces these three principles of success. Simplification is the solution, and every organization wants to know the techniques to help them eradicate complexity and get back to meaningful work that drives innovative change.
Lisa inspires leaders and their teams to consider what it means to have an innovative company. It isn’t about creating a culture of cool lounge areas with ping pong tables. More than anything, your culture will be predicated on the work people do every day. If your organization is mired in meetings, emails and reports, then that is what your culture will be known for; but, wouldn’t you rather be known as the company where people are engaged in truly meaningful work every day? Lisa gives you the tools to make this a reality.
Winning innovators embrace change—do you? What holds you back from better innovating, every day? In too many organizations, we’re stuck in the land of status quo. We’ve forgotten how to think differently, and lack the simple tools to solve problems creatively. The very structures put in place to help organizations grow are now holding us back. This keynote is an inspirational call to arms: to start a revolution in how we think and how we work. If you want people to approach change differently, you have to help them change their approach!
