What if someone in your space came up with a product or service that radically outperformed yours and cost half as much? Someone is going to start a revolution that amazes your customers and disrupts your industry. And, they will define the rules by which everyone else must play the game.
Why can’t it be you?
Find out what happens in a culture where people aren’t afraid to question the unquestionable, leaders encourage risk by rewarding intelligent failure, unlikely partnerships lead to ingenuity you couldn’t achieve on your own, and designers look beyond customer imagination for what’s next.
Through real-life examples and powerful case studies, Kevin Freiberg will show your audience how the most innovative companies in the world continually load their pipelines with great ideas. He will demonstrate how limitations can be springboards to creativity and more elegant solutions.
What if you could create a culture of “constructive discontent” where everyone believes that innovation is his or her job and no one is satisfied with the status quo?
This presentation has received accolades from business leaders in companies all over the world—primarily because Dr. Freiberg demystifies innovation, clearly illustrates what innovators do that others don’t do and offers a roadmap for growth in an uncertain world.
Hungry for Change
In the future there will be two types of organizations: the quick and the dead—those that are unforgettable and those that reside in a sea of sameness, those struggling with commoditization and those that transcend price wars by competing on relationship, innovation and radical differentiation.
If you want to be built to last you must be hungry for change.
In this presentation Kevin will show you what happens in companies that are passionate about growth. He will also show you what happened to a few that got stuck in the ‘incumbent’s mentality” and failed to change because they thought they had too much to lose.
The rules of your industry are being rewritten. New business models are disrupting the old ones. Technology waits for no one and everyone and everything around you is constantly getting better.
Will the changes you make be opportunity-led or crisis-driven?
The business leaders and companies highlighted in this talk refuse to be held hostage by history. They are willing to LET GO of past innovations and unwilling to lean on yesterday’s headlines. Why? Because they know that they are never more vulnerable to complacency, arrogance, indifference and inflexibility than when they are riding the wave of success.
These organizations are far more interested in NEXT practices than BEST practices because they know that in emulating someone else’s best practices, the best they will ever be is a good #2.
What if you could create an organization like that?
Your audience will walk away with 5-6 strategies for building a YES-FAST culture where egos are checked at the door, great ideas are taken from anyone, anywhere, anytime, where people move with a sense of urgency and say “yes” to new relationships, new business.
Radically different. Unforgettably distinct. Truly Original. Easily distinguished. Do these words describe your business? Products? Services? Relationship with your customers?
In a world of mimicry and “me-tooism,” you can’t be a leader by playing follow the leader. This presentation is about growing your business by finding the courage to break away in a world where there’s so much pressure to conform.
Drawing from research on companies that dare to step out of the comfort zone and do what no one else does, Dr. Freiberg will challenge your audience to: Forget about normal and think abnormal. Forget about fitting in. Think about standing out. Forget about middle of the road. Think: On the edge. Forget about ordinary. Think special.
What’s so special about being special?
Special means you are unforgettable. Special means your customers can’t live without you. Special means that if we eliminated your business tomorrow you would be missed. Special means you stop competing on price and start competing on relationship, innovation and radical differentiation. Special makes the comparison with your competitors totally irrelevant because you give your customers something they can’t get anywhere else.
Find out how gutsy, go-for-it leaders in some of the most creative companies in the world “de-commoditize” their businesses and grow. Then, build your own strategy for blowing the doors off business-as-usual!
Will Work For A Cause!
ENERGY • ENGAGEMENT • COMMITMENT • ACCOUNTABILITY
What inspires impassioned employees to come to work fully awake, fully engaged, firing on all cylinders? What causes people to keep going when the critics fire arrows at new ideas and the demons of self-doubt set in?
What compels people to change?
Kevin will answer these questions by taking you into some of the most successful companies in the world and showing you how they raise the level of energy and engagement—even in the most mundane and routine jobs—by defining the business as a noble, heroic cause.
Start a movement!
Movements breed commitment; not compliance. People opt-in to movements. They don’t need to be motivated or micro-managed; they motivate themselves and set their own rigorous targets. They don’t need to be cajoled into collaboration; they willingly reach across boundaries because their passion for the cause is bigger than their need to control information or their fear of change.
Are your people just doing a job, or do they bring the maniacal focus and missionary zeal of a crusader to the game?
Dr. Freiberg will show you how to give your team a direct line-of-sight to a larger cause that releases a powerful flow of PASSION, PRIDE, PERSEVERANCE, AND PRODUCTIVITY.
