I had the recent pleasure of interviewing author and thought leader Glenn Llopis. A few year ago we did a podcast about his book “Earning Serendipity” which was his first book. Glenn has a new book entitled “The Innovation Mentality”, which is focused on bringing awareness to the separateness and silo mentality that is hampering the evolution of our business and the people within the organizations.
The Innovation Mentality reveals the alarming leadership identity crisis that has developed at companies of all sizes and across all industries nationwide that has created dysfunctional, tension-fueled workplaces and made it difficult to drive sustainable growth. These companies are solving for the wrong opportunities, widening productivity gaps, and unknowingly creating tension with and weakening the potential of their increasingly diverse and multigenerational workforce. They are dismantling the evolution of business growth as they simultaneously elevate the risk profile of the global economy.
The Innovation Mentality puts a stop to all that. Its six strategies compel leaders to have the wisdom and courage to develop a new mindset that breaks free from the templates of old and to renew and reinvent the ways we work. The book shows leaders how business today has become less about the business defining the individual and more about the individual defining the business and what kind of leadership that requires. It forces leaders to be more vulnerable and intimate with people in the workplace and marketplace who have lost trust in and respect for those businesses and brands and have grown frustrated with how they are mismanaging opportunities. It enables leaders to embrace the intellectual capital that lies within the workforce and see diversity and inclusion as a profit center to create change and the future America needs.
