Innovation Fueled by Respect
You may ask yourself how do these two seemingly unrelated thoughts fit together. What I have learned by running teams focused on creating innovative ideas, approaches and products is that we must create environments that foster respect for innovation to flourish.
The environment that nurtures respect will allow diverse ideas to be expressed. It is this space that is the lifeblood of new thinking. Innovation requires the looking at a situation from as many perspectives as possible. Respect for all perspectives must be present in order for the team to truly see all the possibilities.
What are you thinking here? I am curious about your perspective??
