INNOVATION IMPOSSIBLE

How Brilliant Teams Make Creativity a Habit, Not a Hail Mary, to Routinely Exceed Expectations

It’s one of the most frustrating things in the working world: some organizations seem to be creative and innovate with ease, while most feel stuck or evolve after it’s too late. As a result, most teams hear “INNOVATE” and panic. They pull last-ditch stunts, work at an all-out sprint, and try to “go big” and make radical changes. Anything to spike the numbers. Anything to innovate. But everything is on fire.

This. Isn’t. Sustainable.

So what’s the difference between those two types of teams? It turns out that the world’s best organizations don’t have the creative “gift.” They have a system — one that approaches creativity as an ongoing process, not a one-off stunt. Their everyday way of operating naturally leads to innovative work. In the end, these teams know that success isn’t measured by random spikes but by the trajectory of the entire line. In other words, they do what seems impossible: They make innovation consistent.

What does that really take?

In this eye-opening, insightful, and hilarious talk, Jay Acunzo helps attendees rethink what it takes to be creative. Together in the room, they reject the need to search for the mythical Muse and instead search for — and find — a sustainable process everyone can implement right away.

Attendees will learn:

  • The cultural and behavioral forces that prevent teams from innovating in the first place.

  • A repeatable system to answer three crucial questions: WHAT should we change? WHEN should we change? HOW should we change?

  • A team-wide framework to make innovation proactive and consistent, instead of reactive and risky.

PERFECT FOR AUDIENCES WHO WANT TO…

  • Create better experiences for others they serve.

  • Improve constantly and systematically to deliver bigger results.

  • Grow a loyal audience and create brand affinity.

BREAK THE WHEEL

How to Make Better Decisions, Faster, When Surrounded by Too Much Information

We live in a world flooding with best practices, conventional wisdom, and trendy tactics. It’s all we can do to simply keep up, let alone take control. It’s like we’re trapped on this always-spinning wheel of reactive decisions and good-enough work. It’s time to escape this cycle. It’s time to break the wheel.

In this fast-paced, inspiring talk, Jay Acunzo hands attendees a sledgehammer. He’ll share lessons learned from researching over 200 teams and individuals who broke from conventional thinking to do exceptional things — without ever feeling like it was risky.

Today, THE skill isn’t finding answers and ideas. It’s vetting them. Jay’s talk will help attendees put a system in place for making better decisions, faster, when surrounded by too much information.

Remember: Finding "best practices" isn’t the goal. Finding the best approach for you is.

Attendees will learn:

  • How to find clarity, faster, when surrounded by information overload.

  • A simple framework for making better decisions than the conventional wisdom — and the competition.

  • The one behavior change we all need to bridge the gap between average and exceptional work.

PERFECT FOR AUDIENCES WHO WANT TO…

  • Transform everyone from the C-suite to practitioners into strategic thinkers.

  • Move faster as a competitive edge.

  • Make sense of constant change and endless noise to make decisions with clarity.
