GHWCC Global Businesswomen's Pod Episode 97 KIM CHRISTFORT CHIEF INNOVATION LEADER DELOITTE GREENHOUSE SUZANNE VICKBERG RESEARCH LEAD DELOITTE GREENHOUSE In this illuminating episode of the Global Business Women's Pod, we are joined by Kim Crisfort, Chief Innovation Leader at Deloitte. The conversation revolves around The Breakthrough Manifesto, a book presenting ten principles designed to spark transformative innovation. Kim and Suzanne share how these principles, though adaptable, serve to encourage an innovative way of thinking that identifies opportunities while solving problems. Deep diving into a major study involving over 28,000 professionals from multiple organizations, we discuss factors that discourage idea contribution during group discussions - a key ingredient in fostering a culture of innovation. Besides psychological safety, other elements include perceived value of contribution, impact of ideas, team dynamics and sense of belonging. Addressing these can significantly improve active participation and idea sharing, fostering a staunch culture of innovation. In a radical realm, our guests discuss how changing routines and exposing oneself to new experiences encourages innovative thinking. By reimagining approach towards major life challenges using creativity, everyday issues can be transformed. Further, the power of curiosity, questioning assumptions, breaking routines and actively seeking new ideas are emphasized as key stimulants in our innovative journey. Listen to this inspiring episode to transform your view on innovation, enabling change and growth in your personal and professional life.
