Creativity, mental flexibility, and collaboration have displaced one-dimensional intelligence and isolated determination as core ingredients of competitive advantage. But these methods and mindsets needed to drive innovation are only found by tapping into the discretionary levels of passion, creativity and initiative within us. This is where Out Think leadership comes in. Each chapter focuses on a key idea, behavior, or mindset of innovative 21st century leaders and describes techniques to show how the mindset or behavior shift can be implemented, with real-world examples, including assessments, exercises and actionable messaging. Through interviews and collaboration with thought-leaders across industries, this book gathers insights, stories, and actionable take-aways, with an emphasis on results, that can drive the change that leaders want and need in their organizations.
