With emerging markets and globalization creating competition in unprecedented ways, who will be the winners in the mad rush to the finish line in Biotech or Energy or IT innovation – or any kind of innovation? After hearing CEO Chris Kearney of SPX Corporation present in the Wachovia Lecture Series this past week, and then speak with his board member Emerson U. Fullwood, it’s no surprise Kearney’s team members are “surfing in the waters of our economic storm” in a fashion that may have some of SPX’s top competitors just a tad nervous.
In support of the kind of leadership that ahead-of-the-pack innovation requires, on March 26, 2010 the Triangle Business Journal quoted Henry Hutchenson of ReGeneration Partners on Daniel Pink’s book, A Whole New Mind: “As this is no ordinary downturn, it will require out-of-the-box thinking to make your way through. Pink scientifically demonstrates how we can better leverage our right brain to create innovative solutions to seemingly hopeless situations.”
The real question now becomes for our readers, “How can I tap into my right brain this way? And what the heck is housed inside my right brain anyway?” Creativity, empathy, and emotional intelligence among other jewels all occupy the right brain, and leveraging this part of your brain can be achieved through experiential workshops of a self-awareness nature.
