You can only advance so much by doing the same thing again and again but just a little bit better. Monks could still be transcribing manuscripts...better...but without using the innovation of the printing press.

To reorganize yourself at a new and higher level requires innovation...doing something new that you've never done before. Since it's new and different for you, you have to learn how to do it and develop your skill at it. This ability to innovate begins with a change in have the self-efficacy and confidence that you can try new and different things in your work and life, and that you can learn how to do them even if you don't know now.

"Don't believe everything you think!"
I will always remember the first time I saw that bumper sticker on someone's laptop. Our thoughts get in the way of us adapting, responding to change, leveraging new opportunities, and innovating in our life and work. This online course will help you to cultivate the mindset for innovation through awareness of your thinking which is both an asset and a liability. Next you will learn techniques for changing your behavior to take action faster.

Big outcomes you could realize from focused action from this program:

1. Reorganize yourself at a higher level through innovation…taking action to learn and do something new and different that has a positive impact for you and others.

2. Get into action doing many small, new and different innovative things but also occasionally some big breakthrough ones that you strategically plan by innovating step-by-step.

3. Do the things you should do that you may not have done. Catch up. Leverage the most important source of new and better ideas…applying technology. Adopt technology at a faster rate. For instance, You use websites all day long. Have you built your own? You can do it in hours.

4. See that you have a history as an innovator (someone who has learned and done new and different things for higher levels of growth and impact). Strategize to do more of them and continue your timeline.

5. Understand the reality of innovation…it is not improvement. It is more like fishing. We may not catch something with each cast but we learn as we go. Fishing is fun…so is innovating.

6. Don’t let thinking stop you from action.

7. Move from less of a fixed mindset to more of a growth mindset.
