Transcript of Copy of Innovation through collaborative ingenuity

The importance of language and how we use it.
"People move in the direction of their conversations"

- Ed Morrison
Leadership: the importance of critical reflection to modeling failure
Good leaders are mindful of incorporating positive, solution focused language that imbibes a sense of power and responsibility.
Good leaders model vulnerability by allowing themselves to be 'seen'.
The most powerful way of demonstrating this is by being prepared to fail and to be seen to fail.
Collaboration: Connecting people to resources and mobilizing them towards new opportunities.

Maintaining change using Strategic Doing

The Unusual Suspects: Facilitating innovation and ingenuity in organisations.
American Social Worker Brene Brown mapped the relationship between Creativity, Courage and Vulnerability. She discovered that, creativity requires courage, that courage comes from vulnerability, where being vulnerable is being prepared to 'be seen'.
Innovation requires people moving from problem soaked to solution focused language.
Conversations that are mindful of their solution focused language invite responsibility from participants to engage productively.
What are the Origins of Innovation?
"Conversation may not yield new meaning, but new meaning will not take hold without conversation."
Mark Strom

In order to collaborate systems, networks, communities and organizations need to be able to connect up in new and unusual ways.

- H. Jackson Brown
