Almost everyone in our business is faced with difficult choices. The asset pool has shrunk, old job categories are disappearing, and decision making models have collapsed. Some people are taking this opportunity to innovate, both inside existing positions and striking out to create new ventures. This presentation focuses on the skills needed to develop an “innovation mind set”, with tips for both creative thinking and for handling the ups and downs of change environments.

 The First Five Questions
  • What do I want?
  • By when?
  • What do I need to get there?
  • What do I have; how will I get what I don’t have?
  • Am I willing to do what it takes?

Reinvention: Where Do I Start?
  • Activate creative thinking
  • Incorporate the past with the present with the future
  • See what others might miss
  • Execute a plan in a shifting world
Working with a Coach

  • Choose the right one for you
  • Establish clear ROI
  • Be ready to work and make the changes you want
