Innov8rs Community Guide
Hey! I'm part of the Innov8rs team and I'm here to help you have the greatest experience with the Innov8rs community. Please reach out any time with questions, music suggestions or must-visit destinations.
Take a moment to recognize the great work you're doing and share a recent win! 

It can be minor, such as a conversation that went better than expected, or major such as learnings from a recently implemented approach or experiment. What are you proud of right now?
I set up my consultancy company "Advice & Impact" couple of weeks back. This week I am preparing the vision statement. The goal of the company is to support the leadership to embrace changes.

I found it a great experience to participate in #SwissDigitalDays. What I found fascinating was, for example, that there were so many different ways of involving / inviting people - including use of hashtag on social media, live chat through live stream, and surveys through slido. I found that moderators did a fine effort in making the initiative participatory / inclusive. What was / is, as I view it, a truly great "win" is that participants had the possibility - via the different platforms / technologies used - to flexibly take part in numerous events across the entire country.
I'm getting the first positive results of facilitating ideation workshops.
People are spreading the positive results and coming back to me to organize more of it.
Culture change on the move!

Big or small, our wins matter! Take a moment today to celebrate and share a win you've had this month.

Comment below with something that worked out well or better than expected, or possibly an approach/experiment that didn't go as planned, but ended up giving you some great insight.
 

A personal 'win' - I presented a fireside chat (as the interviewer) and moderated a panel of transformation experts from my home office... and I actually enjoyed it!  Loving the remote life :-)
We are working on an internal training program to teach lean experimentation and intrapreneurship skills across the firm. I have raised a team of 5 part-time volunteers to help create some of the content. They are very motivated and have started to pick up other innovation related topics (internal communication, culture, HR, etc.) out of pure enthusiasm for the topic. I can’t wait to see the results!

Get your program sponsors or supporters to give you 15 minutes a month. Use this to help develop concepts / business cases or even practice pitches with ideators. It should be a strict 15 minutes.

This week we sent someone off to practice their pitch with a program supporter and they ended up getting the funding they needed to take the next step.

They went in thinking it was a practice pitch with no pressure and ended up giving a great pitch and getting the funding to run until the end of the year and expand the reach of the PoC. If they didn't get it, they would have been ready for the real pitch .. that we have to now cancel or very quickly find something!

Win win.

  • Friction by Roger Dooley - love the concept, not made on the book
  • Engaged by Amy Bucher - designing for behaviour change on a massive scale - super interesting
