If you deconstruct the origins of how innovation really happens, you’ll discover a fascinating phenomenon – almost all great breakthroughs were the result of creative partnership, i.e Crick & Watson, Jobs & Wozniak, Lennon & McCartney. While individual genius may spark innovation, it’s collaboration that fans that spark into a roaring fire. These days, unfortunately, in most organizations, collaboration is in short supply. Silos and turfs rule. Teamwork is a poster on the wall. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Enter Breakthrough Collaboration – Idea Champions' guide to realizing that 1+1 is not 2. It’s 11.

“The beginning is the most important part of the work,” said Plato 2,400 years ago. It was true then. It is true now – especially in large organizations where a faulty project launch is often the difference between a “good idea” and measurable results. Most project leaders, unfortunately, stumble their way through the launch process – unclear, unfocused, and untrained. Enter Let's Do Launch -- Idea Champions' new initiative insurance policy designed to teach project managers how to launch impactful projects in the most effective way possible. Schedule a workshop.
How to Ensure Team Commitment
All successful teams share one thing in common no matter what their product or service – and that is their ability to make and keep commitments. That’s the DNA of a high performing team and always will be. All too often, however, the act of making commitments is a sham – or, at the very least, disappointing. The same holds true for its twin brother, accountability. Keeping commitments and being accountable is not all that difficult. That is, IF you understand what's at stake and how to master the art. That's what How to Ensure Team Commitment is all about. Schedule a workshop.
