001: A Path to More Creative Thinking

Innovation is a skill – it’s not a gift. It’s not something you’re born with. You can actually learn to be creative like you could learn any other skill whether it be in business or in your personal life or some other skill that you want to learn like a new sport.

Innovation Inside the Box is a podcast dedicated to creating a culture of innovation and a flowing pipeline. Each week, we feature structured creativity and innovation strategies for leaders who want to think differently and who want to be more innovative, implement change, and grow. 

This podcast is about the idea that creativity can be systematic. 

With each episode, you will learn how to generate ideas using a method called Systematic Inventive Thinking (SIT), which you can apply individually or with other people. You’re going to learn how to break fixedness and discover great ideas that will help you generate even greater ideas. 

If you’ve struggled many times to come up with great ideas, this gives you a way to actually generate high quality, innovative ideas on demand – anytime you want.
