LAUNCH OF NEW BOOK BY BUSINESS PARTNER, MICHAEL GELB.
You may be familiar with Michael Gelb through his New York Times bestseller How to Think Like Leonardo da Vinci (1998). Michael has just released a new book Creativity On Demand: How to Ignite and Sustain the Fire of Genius , I feel that it is his most powerful work yet.
In preparing for this book, he brought these passions together by interviewing many of the world’s leading masters of these internal energy arts. He asked, “What is your most powerful practice that the average person can do in 20 minutes or less to empower their creative energy?” Michael took the best of their responses and then integrated them with the creativity methods he teaches to executives from companies like Genentech, Microsoft and Nike. The result is profound: a practical, evidence-based approach to igniting and sustaining your creative fire.

La innovación centrada en el cliente
La innovación más efectiva ocurre cuando entendemos cuáles son las necesidades y los deseos de nuestros clientes. Pero ¿cómo se lleva a cabo este tipo de innovación? Lo primero es formar a los empleados que están en el front line, ya que actúan como observadores privilegiados, capaces de ver oportunidades y de inferir en las futuras necesidades de los clientes. Así, los empleados se sienten más comprometidos con la empresa, y esta aumenta las posibilidades de que las nuevas soluciones lanzadas al mercado sean más atractivas para los consumidores.

Reading John F. Kennedy and some of his quotes, here is one that is so relevant to today, its ominous:-
” Never Before has Man, had Such a Capacity to control his own environment, to end thirst and hunger, to conquer poverty and disease, to banish illiteracy and massive human misery….We have the power to make this the best generation of mankind in the history of the world, or make it our last”.
JFK was murdered, like so many others that had something relevant and challenging to say. Those who are still bringing misery of spirit, are humanly impoverished, and emotionally illiterate will keep fighting to their dying breath to ensure that the “power to make this the best generation of human kind” does NOT occur.
Borrowing from Emma´s Watson´s speech at the UN in NY:
IF NOT ME, WHO? IF NOT NOW, WHEN?
How many of us are prepared to stand up and be counted? To make this the BEST GENERATION of human history.
I AM. Are you?
