Episode #7 of the Invisible Solutions podcast is now live.
What if loving your ideas can lead to failure? I first address this question and why confirmation bias and positive test strategy can destroy your innovation efforts.
Then I have on my first guest, Jack Elkins, the former Director of Innovation for the National Basketball Association’s Orlando Magic. He and I discuss the question: How can we help organizations solve their own problems in a collaborative environment?
We explore a number of key points for setting up the right environment:
- Generate laughter and listening through improv comedy
- Reduce anxiety
- Reinforce why they are there – and remind them they have permission
- Remove labels and hierarchies
We also discuss a great story on how observation led to a problem-reframe for a college football team, along with a few other helpful tips.
This one is an action packed 17 minutes!
