Innovation Training Around the World … and in Thailand

Suppose that you are a leader in your organization, and that you would like to unleash the creative potential of all the people throughout the organization.  Is that not one of your goals?  Almost certainly it is.  One of the most impactful actions that organizational leaders can take to do so is to examine the ways of working – how do we communicate, ideate, consider, decide, and innovate?  And what are the patterns and structures in our organization the enable innovation, and what are those that inhibit it?

A very fine book on this topic that we strongly recommend explores the topic of what the authors refer to as “liberating structures,” by which they mean those ways of working that enable people to be more effective at all of the highly complex cognitive tasks associated with coming up with useful new stuff – that is, with innovation.  Click here to check out the web site that promotes the book The Surprising Power of Liberating Structures.

These structures will certainly be essential for everyone working in the advanced economies of the world in the coming years, and The Economist has recently published a very fine overview of some of the key issues and challenges that we will be facing in the global economyTake a look at it here.

One of the economic processes that is essential today, and whose importance will only increase, is of course innovation.  If you are an innovation trainer, or an aspiring one, and you are in Thailand, you should definitely consider participating in the upcoming train-the-trainer course that will be held on February 28 and March 1, 2015 in Bangkok.  InnovationLabs Thailand is offering this course for all those who are interested in leading the unique InnovationLabs programs on YourKohSamuiVillas.com.  Please access additional information here.
