Growth Mindset for the Future: Innovation as a Way of Learning, Creating and Mitigating Risk

Pulling together a coaching approach to an innovation culture it became clear that the language we use to talk about innovation triggers a threat response making it harder to achieve; fail often, fail fast, fail forward, it’s risky, it’s difficult and so on.

Jacqueline has done a u turn on this language and instead of reframing failure we have removed the words altogether in our collateral.

Innovation relies on experimentation and exploration through rapid iteration and each iteration provides an opportunity to learn which actually mitigates risk. Innovation is creative exploration and learning to achieve an outcome that adds value to people. Jacqueline offers insights into how she is applying new thinking to building a culture that fosters and enables innovation.
