The management thinker Peter Drucker once stated, “Insight lasts; theories don’t.“ Breakthroughs and insights require going beyond your habitual approach to issues and seeing them in new ways. This topic offers three brief stories to help shift your perspective and promote insights on current issues within your organization. These thought-provoking stories range in topic from perfume magnates to physicists to baboons. What they all have in common, is that they provide different “lenses” through which you can view your organizational challenges.
The objectives for this session are to:
- Notice previously unseen aspects of issues and problems in your organization.
- Apply new insights to resolving challenges and seizing opportunities.
- Provide you with a method for ongoing innovative thinking.
