In This Episode: Carla Johnson, world-renowned keynote speaker and author of her latest book “RE:Think Innovation,” details the five step framework for innovation to inspire growth in business. 

Thoughts on Innovation from Carla Johnson:

  1. Innovation is everybody’s job; it’s not just about the product or service that you sell.
  2. Innovation is the ability to consistently come up with new, great, and reliable ideas.
  3. One of the great things about innovation is that it allows a company to spark idea generation, problem solving, and critical thinking in all their employees.
  4. To have inspiration for great ideas on a consistent basis, that are new and reliable, we must be aware of the world around us, and take in inspiration wherever and whenever we can.
  5. A key characteristic of innovative people is that they are willing to own their own ideas, and they’re willing to fight for them.
