The Idea Farm

By: David Veech

Change is sweeping through organizations at an exciting and challenging pace. Those who can’t embrace this or build resilient systems will suffer in many ways. Building resiliency skills in the workplace is the best preparation for any kind change. To build these skills, we’ll need a system of structures that allow ideas to surface and then flourish through collaborative refinement that leads to more ideas.

We need an idea farm.

It begins with changing the way we lead and work so we can create a confident workforce. Then provides a simple structure to allow those employees to frequently and rapidly share, analyze, synthesize, and evaluate their own ideas with a helpful coach.

In this presentation, we’ll explore all of these systems and structures and offer you ideas to take home and immediately plant to cultivate your own idea farm.
