Become Your Better Self
As people we are naturally creatures of habit. Every morning we slip on our daily routine like a coat and begin our day without a second thought. However, complex as human nature is, we also have a natural need to do better, be smarter, look better, and thrive. Innovation You: Four Steps to Becoming New and Improved is the book to help you become your better self, while being nothing like a self help book. Jeff asks that you show; not tell and that you be honest and direct with yourself on your innovation journey. Jeff’s 4 steps are easy to follow and get results.
- Rethink Innovation: Take small but consistent steps out of your comfort-zone by paying attention to the world around you and “riding what moves.”
- Rethink Your Approach: Use the Competing Values Framework to identify your natural innovation profile—do you compete, collaborate, create, or control?—and then deliberately draw from the other styles to augment your usual tactics.
- Rethink Your Methods: Put your reinvention plan in motion—set specific, realistic, and meaningful targets, cultivate relationships with relevant mentors and experts, and try alternate methods to achieve your goals.
- Rethink the Journey: Understand that innovation is cyclical, not linear and that there will be a margin of uncertainty along your journey. Learn to accept this uncertainty while still being successful by paying attention to areas that you can improve.
