The thinking that got us into the situation we are in now is definitely not the kind of thinking that will get us out. We need to leave our comfort zones and explore new possibilities. We need innovative learning.
The rational mind sees itself as our safety referee. Stray too far away from the familiar and it cries foul and reins us back in so we can stay within the comfort zone.
However as the complexity of global and organizational problems increases so must our comfort with a different kind of safety: the kind where you can explore possibilities, experiment with radically different approaches and work with others as part of a collaborative and diverse team. That takes innovative learning.
Jack Barnard, author, musician, speaking coach, performer, radio show broadcaster and founder of SourceWorks, which merges improvisation and theater techniques with personal growth and development, speaks to us about how innovative learning can help us change our thinking so that we can get out of the perplexing conundrums that limit performance.
After all, the thinking that got us into the situation we are in is definitely not the kind of thinking that will get us out.
The Evolutionary Provocateur bi-monthly show is for executives, managers, and supervisors (OR for leaders at all levels) who have noticed that it is not what you know but who you are that has the biggest impact.
Dawna Jones, the show's host, believes that by raising awareness and understanding we can make a quantum leap to a new level of innovation in business - but it has to be done collectively.
What better way to do it than by provoking the evolution of how you see yourself and your role!
