In this episode, we present a conversation with Dorie Clark, CEO of Park Strategic Communications and named one of 50 Top Business Thinkers in the world by Thinkers 50. This previously recorded conversation occurred during Ewald’s Vision 2021 Conference.
- Too often, innovation is something called upon only when needed. Dorie explains that’s not how it works anymore. Innovation should be a constant skill we use and improve upon.
- Challenge the status quo. Many organizations have been doing the same things for years, simply because that’s the way things have been done. Question your organization’s practices and utilize your experiences to bring in more perspective.
- Ideas come from problems. Your unique perspective on problems you have faced can open up new doors for innovation.
- Connectors are often the most valuable people in an organization — and it’s become easier than ever to become one. Finding gaps in communication and filling them makes you indispensable in your organization. Putting the effort in to network and get a feel for others’ ideas will help you disseminate the best ideas throughout your organization. Previously, it was difficult to meet up with peers across the world or the country. Now, we can hop on Zoom calls instantly.
