How to Innovate: Go Wild With Confidence

In this Success Summit interview, Dr. Connie Reimers-Hild explains how one’s emotions, moods and perspective on life can predispose one to be more innovative at the office. She emphasizes the value of fun and a playful attitude, in particular, as a catalyst for thinking differently about solving problems, thinking out of the box and making a more strategic contribution in your career.

While talking with WOWBIZ host, Lynn Hinderaker, she suggests we think about ourselves as being “larger than we really are.” In this globally-connected world, it’s key to become comfortable with “failing faster.” Finally, Reimers-Hild introduces “open innovation,” which involves cultivating more partnerships as a catalyst for stimulating whole brain thinking and personal fulfillment.
