Innovating Innovation

Leadership Tools to Make Revolutionary Change Happen for You and Your Business

By David Morey

Breakthrough Innovation Tools for Successful Leadership

Innovation needs innovation: Innovation is broken. Business leadership and management struggle to find ways to crack through their own corporate politics or bureaucratic silos, to move from defense to offense, to nurture real breakthrough, to drive visionary creativity in ways that add new value to everything they do. In "Innovating Innovation", David Morey, one of America’s leading strategic consultants, will teach, coach, and guide you across eleven concrete and pragmatic steps that unlock and drive day-to-day innovation in your business and help you gain a long-term competitive advantage in your marketplace.

Make change and innovation happen: "Innovating Innovation" synergizes what is best in classic innovation theories with an insurgent strategic model inspired by one of Morey’s first corporate clients, Apple founder Steve Jobs. It shows how to lead innovation that creates the products of visionary genius without the necessity for actual genius. It provides practical tools and guidance on building and leading the teams, working conditions, organizational structures, and cultures of market-made and market-making innovation. It illustrates a roadmap to the disruptive periphery, the organizational margins at which real innovation actually takes place.

Innovation can be taught: "Innovating Innovation" is a framework to counter failure. It directs you, the reader, to the consumer, the very person who will actually tell you how to innovate the benefits to create a future you can own. This book invites you to “think different,” to become a change leader, to go the “wrong” way to get to the right places. And it shows you how to apply the pragmatic lessons of Agile software development to absolutely everything and to accelerate your leadership career and your company’s success by stepping up from mere evolution to punctuated equilibrium, evolution as breakthrough.

Your business needs unique innovation: You and your business need innovation as never before and unlike anyone else’s. This is lesson number one. And in the space of eleven chapters, "Innovating Innovation" offers lesson number two: You don’t need to be a genius to deliver the performances, products, and services of innovation at genius levels in the most opportunity-rich and threat-intensive business environment in history. Your management and leadership skills will improve immensely, taking your business to a level of innovation success beyond what it has ever achieved before.

"Innovating Innovation" is a step-by-step handbook for teaching, and at times even tricking, your organization, your culture, and your company into real-world change. After reading this new battlefield manual for innovation, you will:

  • Learn the Disruptive Periphery Concept and how it can give you the tools to help your business
  • Discover a practical marketing-centric focus applied to innovation
  • Reap the benefits of lessons developed from thirty years of real-world global consulting and training experience

Zen Bender

By

Forty, chronically single, and up an extra 20 pounds, TV news producer Stephanie Krikorian fell victim to The Great Recession, finding herself suddenly unemployed. One unwanted pregnancy away from being a Lifetime Original Movie, Stephanie had to reinvent herself . . . and fast. So, to keep her head above water, she started ghostwriting self-help and diet books for a variety of well-known experts. However, she didn’t just write each book she took on, she lived it—chanting, journaling, reflecting, reframing, removing SIBO foods from her diet (or was it adding?)—whatever it took to get deep into the heart of each project. And then, as her ghost-writing business grew, she started reading other self-help books as well—for “research." Or so she told herself. That’s when things went next level. Overwhelmed by the sheer number of life fixes available, Stephanie scrambled to plug the multiple holes that surely must have existed in her mind, body, and soul. She went on what turned out to be a near decade long Zen Bender. She hit the guru circuit hard, like it was her job —no psychic, class, coach, fixer, or self-help book left behind. She did what Oprah said to do. She did what the Spiritual Owl said to do. She did what anybody said to do, frankly. With every radical effort came the unfulfilled promise of massive live-altering change and improvement. And then right around her 49th birthday, with one year left in her forties, screaming towards age 50, she was walking out to the end of the Venice Pier in Los Angeles, exhausted after a grueling session of Reiki, listening to, you guessed it, a self-help book (that was saying she was chubby because she must hate her mother) when it hit her: maybe I’m good enough already. Maybe she had been all along. Zen Bender is a collection of witty, moving, insightful stories, bookended with both the zany words of wisdom Stephanie picked up during her decade seeking personal growth and enlightenment, and some more concrete, grounded advice of her own. This book is a hilarious snapshot of one woman’s 10-year journey on the self-help circuit woven with insight on embracing age 50 with a wine glass full of acceptance and a chaser of self-love. Stephanie, who doesn’t hate her mother or her father or her seventies childhood that included the Dorothy Hamill haircut, was born and raised in Canada. She currently splits her time between New York City, and East Hampton, and spends a lot of in Los Angeles. Prior to launching her ghost-writing business, Stephanie worked in the news business for CNBC, BusinessWeek, Reuters and the Wall Street Journal. One Emmy nomination and nearly 20 book collaborations later, including a New York Times Bestseller, her essays and articles have appeared in multiple publications including O, the Oprah Magazine. Zen Bender is Stephanie’s first solo book.

The High Achievers Guide

By

Are you trapped in a gilded cage of your own making? Successful, but not necessarily fulfilled? Stuck, but not sure why or how to get unstuck? Your life looks fantastic on paper. You’re making money, have a career, family, lifestyle, etc. that you thought you always wanted. But now you’re there and it’s not all you expected it to be. If this sounds familiar, you’re not alone. But where do you begin? You want life to be better, but you don’t know *how* to make it better. The High Achievers Guide: Embrace the Uncomfortable, Do the Deep Work, and Create the Life You Are Here to Live provides the reader with the tools, mindset and process to do the deep emotional work, get clarity, and create the life that is truly aligned to them. A dismal 1 out of 3 people reports feeling happy with their lives. And what does happiness mean anyway? Is it fulfillment? What does fulfillment mean? Is your definition the same as the person next to you? To have something you’ve never had, you have to be willing to do something you’ve never done. You need the tools and process to determine what fulfillment means to you. The High Achievers Guide guides you through four major themes of personal development: · Clarity regarding your baseline – how you’ve been programmed to operate and how to identify the limiting beliefs and outdated mindset that holds you back · What drives you – achievement-oriented focus largely defined by outside factors rather than internal drivers · How to leave behind outdated programming and make space for the new, updated mindset that will take you to the next level of operation · Taking inspired action and committing to the vision you have created for your life A former corporate career professional, Maki Moussavi grew up in midwestern small-town America, a first-generation citizen born to immigrants. Her early life was filled with messages of hard work, chasing the dream, getting the degrees, and making the money. After creating the “success” that she’d been taught to value, she found herself questioning how the hell she ended up feeling stuck, restless and unfulfilled. An avid consumer of self-help, she found that the literature available, while helpful in the pursuit of personal betterment, didn’t quite get her to where she needed to be. She discovered the key to deep and rapid transformation is a willingness to do the uncomfortable self-examination and commit to raising the bar of expectation in pursuit of thriving rather than surviving.

The Changemaker Mindset

By

Personality is the Key to Professional Success

Personal relationships are key to success: In a time when workplaces are becoming more digital and more automated every day, our mindsets and our personal relationships will determine whether we succeed in tomorrow’s markets. We all have one shot to make a lasting impact. Innovators with the changemaker mindset know how to see that opportunity when it comes and make it matter.

The human success factor: In the coming years, the human success factor will determine who is among the winners and who is among the losers. All business adventures start with a focus on the self. When you know who you are and develop a deep sense of confidence in yourself, you’ll have the flexibility to roll with the punches.

Change comes from within: Whether your goal is to lead a self-determined life, position your company for the future, or be a successful part of a team, external change starts with internal transformation.

With The Changemaker Mindset, you’ll master the three Ps of personal development:

  • Purpose. Reconsider what motivates you and find your non-negotiable core principles.
  • People. Build a strong inner circle of peers, because nobody wins alone.
  • Persistence. Develop the confidence to take action, navigate setbacks, and implement change.

Readers who liked The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey, Leading Change by John Kotter, and The Innovator's Dilemma: When New Technologies Cause Great Firms to Fail by Clayton Christensen will love this new approach to effective business management from personal development.
