THE MAKING OF A MAVERICK … Building Intrapreneurial cultures using the power of purpose and creativity

Mavericks are creative dreamers, independent thinkers and radical doers. They are changemakers, innovators and visionaries.  They are what business today needs more of  – those who have the courage, the creativity and the tenacity to turn today’s challenges into tomorrow’s opportunities.   However, some business leaders also fear Mavericks. Because they don’t understand them and don’t know how to harness their creativity and creative thinking. Or, because some don’t the courage themselves to embrace the positive and powerful change that can come from building a ‘Movement of Mavericks’ within their business.

ARE WE OUTSOURCING OUR CURIOSITY TO AN ALGORITHM? … the challenges to creativity of a digital world

Rich, inspirational and dynamic creativity needs rich and diverse sources of foundational nutrition for it to thrive. At the heart of these nutritional needs is Curiosity. It is curiosity that feeds creativity, and fills the brain with all the stimuli, context and imaginative roots we all need to join new dots in new ways the next time we are called upon to creatively engage in a new project, product or innovation.

However, in a world where we increasingly turn first to our screens for inspiration, we come upon a paradox: we have access to more information than ever, but because of our previous search histories and preferences, the algorithms feed us 'more of the same’ and far less genuinely diverse inspiration to spark and feed our curiosity. This limits our creative ambition and perhaps ultimately, our the creativity that forms the basis of our corporate innovation. In this keynote, Paul Spiers, Founder of The New P&L Brand Purpose Institute and Host of the global business podcast, - The New P&L – Principles & Leadership will explore:

  • Why curiosity is critical to business success
  • What the dangers to business innovation are from us ‘outsourcing our curiosity to an algorithm’
  • Why right now is a critical moment for businesses in regard to the Curiosity + Creativity = Innovation equation
  • How employees and leaders can be more intentional about their curiosity ‘in the moment’
  • What leaders and entrepreneurs can do to reengage their natural curiosity to the benefit of themselves and their businesses
