Keynote Topics

Winning innovators embrace change – do you? What holds you and your organization back from better innovating, every day? In too many organizations, we’re stuck in the land of status quo. We’ve forgotten how to think differently, and lack the simple tools to solve problems creatively.

The very structures put in place inside organizations to help them grow all too often hold them back. This keynote is an inspirational call to arms: to start a revolution in how we think and how we work. If you want people to approach change differently, you have to help them change their approach.

End the Status Quo, Start an Innovation Revolution. Using engaging interactivity, real-world examples and practical advice, Bodell shares how teams can actually do less and achieve more by learning how to pivot quickly and better embrace change. Leaders learn why providing guardrails to their teams instead of handcuffs can reignite critical aptitudes such as curiosity, inquiry, creative problem-solving, and more.

TAKEAWAYS:

  • Everyone is a change agent.
  • Change involves a toolkit, not a process.
  • Reignite curiosity, inquiry and creative problem solving.
  • Small changes can make a big impact.

Imagine what you could do with the time you spend sitting in meetings and writing emails every day. Complexity is killing companies’ ability to innovate and adapt, and simplicity is quickly becoming the competitive advantage of our time.

Drawing on research and themes from her latest book, Why Simple Wins, our CEO, Lisa Bodell, inspires leaders and their teams to proactively move beyond the feelings of frustration and futility that come with so much unproductive work in today’s corporate world, to create a corporate culture where valuable, essential, meaningful work is the norm.

By learning how to eliminate redundancies, communicate with clarity, and make simplification a habit, individuals and companies can begin to recognize which activities are time-sucks and which create lasting value. Using highly engaging stories and techniques, Bodell proves that by using simplicity as an operating principle, we can eliminate the organizational and individual busywork that consumes us every day, and instead spend more time on the work that matters.

TAKEAWAYS:

  • Get informed by examples that resonate: consumers will pay more for simpler experiences; people recommend companies that exemplify simplicity; employees are brand champions in companies that operate with simplicity.
  • Identify areas for simplification within your organization
  • Learn techniques to make simplification a habit.
  • Understand which tasks take the most (unnecessary) time both individually and as a team.
  • Start to create a culture of simplification and exemplify its practices.

Winning innovators readily embrace opportunities for change. They also recognize that both great changes and great innovation can occur during times of great constraint. 

As the pace of change continues to accelerate, teams that wish to survive and succeed must be able to leverage challenges to their advantage.

In this speech, Bodell will share methods that your teams need to ignite disruptive thinking, build agility, and turn problems into possibilities. 

Curiosity is a power skill that drives innovation. And in a world where information is increasingly accessible and abundant, knowing how to leverage curiosity and ask the right questions is more important than ever before.

In this speech, Bodell will teach how to ask Killer Questions.

With this technique, teams are empowered to shift their mindset from judging to learning and as a result, their questions can reveal candid information, uncover fixable problems, and illuminate competitive opportunities.
