THIS EPISODE IS PERFECT FOR…entrepreneurs, purveyors of ideas, and those yet to be sparked into innovation and entrepreneurship!
TODAY’S MAIN MESSAGE…Creativity is a skill that can be built and developed, it isn’t a rare talent granted to a select few. Josh is here to help us dissect the anatomy of any idea and how you too can be a part of the “creative wizardry” we know as innovation and entrepreneurship. How can you build rituals and rewards into an organization that cultivates desired outcomes? How do you implement techniques that bring ideas to the surface? It’s all discipline, not magic. It’s all reps and iteration. So, let’s take a look under the microscope with Josh!
WHAT I LOVE MOST…Josh’s suggestions for how to incorporate more creativity and innovation into our everyday lives!
