Innovation by Design – Keeping Your Feet on the Ground and Your Head in the Clouds
Gert Garman, Broad Perspective, LLC, Orlando, FL

All of us so easily get into the weeds and don’t see the big picture!  In this session, you will learn some tools to help you stay grounded in your challenges but still be able to think at 30,000 feet and get to some very different solutions that you may not have discovered before.  There is a process for this and a new skill set to help you continue to think differently and move the needle for your business.

Key take-a-ways:

  • Learn more about the creative problem solving process to innovate differently
  • Tools to help you get “unstuck”
  • Ways to think bigger and better
  • Behaviors to interact differently as a team for more cohesive collaboration
