The Innovator’s Mindset By: Gabriel V. Lechuga The Innovator’s Mindset was first and foremost written with the innovator in mind. With approximately only 1% of all innovations succeeding in the marketplace, the pursuit of success and the chances of failure are extremely high. With odds like those there is a great need for advice on how to navigate the innovation field. Inside are insights, advice, true stories, experiences and examples of what it takes to become a successful innovator from the author’s firsthand knowledge. It also stresses the importance of being mentally ready and why preparation is so important to help face coming challenges. Additionally, there is a call for all individuals wanting to make positive changes in this world especially when it comes to countering poverty. With the ideas in this book it is hoped that all innovators reach their goals.

The traditional system of education requires students to hold their questions and compliantly stick to the scheduled curriculum. But our job as educators is to provide new and better opportunities for our students. It's time to recognize that compliance doesn't foster innovation, encourage critical thinking, or inspire creativity--and those are the skills our students need to succeed.

Innovation isn't optional—it's imperative Everyone wants to create new products and services, find new customers and markets, stay ahead of the competition, and work smarter instead of harder. Yet with all the focus and attention on innovation, the term has become an overused buzzword rather than a real, tangible concept. If you want to seriously pursue innovation—you need to strip away the hype. Real innovators need to transcend the existing ideas, rules, and patterns to discover exciting new outcomes. They must step outside the best practice box and get their hands dirty. The spirit of a true innovator is rooted in wanting to do something that has never been done before, to solve problems that have never been solved, and to run through walls and leap over tall buildings to get there. In The Innovator’s Spirit, author Chuck Swoboda—retired chairman and CEO of Cree, a company that fundamentally changed the way people experience light and drove the obsolescence of the Edison light bulb—explains that innovation is fundamentally about people and shows his readers how to develop a mindset of creativity, risk-taking, and hard work. He also instills in them a belief that there is always a better way.

It is not hard to find credible resources on how to start a business once you have a great idea. However, it is extremely hard to find credible resources on how to generate compelling business ideas in the first place. How does innovation happen? Why does it happen? What are the common sources of great ideas? More importantly, how can we use this information to develop great business ideas of our own? THE INNOVATOR'S SOURCEBOOK was written to provide detailed, actionable answers to these questions. This book is about where to look for the sources of innovation and, for once, how to exploit them. What is not in the book: * Vague suggestions for being creative * Random idea generators * Belabored analogies * A rebranding of brainstorming * Claims to a science * Ambiguous implementation steps

Personality is the Key to Professional Success Personal relationships are key to success: In a time when workplaces are becoming more digital and more automated every day, our mindsets and our personal relationships will determine whether we succeed in tomorrow’s markets. We all have one shot to make a lasting impact. Innovators with the changemaker mindset know how to see that opportunity when it comes and make it matter. The human success factor: In the coming years, the human success factor will determine who is among the winners and who is among the losers. All business adventures start with a focus on the self. When you know who you are and develop a deep sense of confidence in yourself, you’ll have the flexibility to roll with the punches. Change comes from within: Whether your goal is to lead a self-determined life, position your company for the future, or be a successful part of a team, external change starts with internal transformation. With The Changemaker Mindset, you’ll master the three Ps of personal development: • Purpose. Reconsider what motivates you and find your non-negotiable core principles. • People. Build a strong inner circle of peers, because nobody wins alone. • Persistence. Develop the confidence to take action, navigate setbacks, and implement change. Readers who liked The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey, Leading Change by John Kotter, and The Innovator's Dilemma: When New Technologies Cause Great Firms to Fail by Clayton Christensen will love this new approach to effective business management from personal development.

We May Not Be in Kansas Anymore . . . With so much change in education and so many teachers feeling like they're in unfamiliar territory, Herbie Raad and Nathan Lang-Raad offer a guide through this ever-changing landscape by turning to the classic story of The Wonderful Wizard of Oz. Each chapter in this heartfelt book centers around a character from the novel and examines how that character's virtues (wisdom, heart, courage, and spirit) can help inspire and reinvigorate teachers and school leaders. Offering a charming mix of the pedagogical and the personal, this book paves the way through the wilderness of rosters, meetings, lesson plans, and initiatives so that teachers can engage with their most authentic selves in the midst of the assumptions and illusions inside of education. "The way Nathan and Herbie bring out challenging ideas and opportunities in education through the connection to The Wonderful Wizard of Oz did all the things that I hope for when reading any book; it made me laugh, cry, and think." -- George Couros (@gcouros), author of The Innovator's Mindset and Innovate Inside the Box "Written from the heart and based on experience and expertise in the field, Nathan and Herbie guide educators down the 'yellow brick road, ' encouraging us to make connections, challenge assumptions, and land back on purpose." -- Dr. Jennifer Williams (@JenWilliamsEdu), author of Teach Boldly "By traveling through Oz, we learn concrete strategies to embrace the type of teaching and learning that will light a fire beneath us! And the magic of the strategies is this: everything we need to become the teacher we always wanted to be is already inside of us."-- Katie Novak, Ed.D.

More than a decade ago, Clayton Christensen's breakthrough book The Innovator's Dilemma illustrated how disruptive innovations drive industry transformation and market creation. Christensen's research demonstrated how growth-seeking incumbents must develop the capability to deflect disruptive attacks and seize disruptive opportunities. In The Innovator's Guide to Growth, Scott Anthony, Mark Johnson, Joseph Sinfield, and Elizabeth Altman take the subject to the next level: implementation. The authors explain how to create this crucial capability for unlocking disruption's transformational power. With a foreword by Christensen, this book provides a set of market-proven tools and approaches to innovation that have been honed through fieldwork with innovative companies like Procter & Gamble, Johnson & Johnson, Pepsi, Intel, Motorola, SAP, and Cisco Systems. The book shows you how to: Follow a market-proven process -- so your company can reliably create blockbuster businesses Create structures, systems, and metrics -- so the disruptive innovations that will power your firm's future growth receive the funding and personnel needed to succeed Create a common language of disruptive innovation -- so managers can reach consensus around counterintuitive courses of action Incisive and practical, this book helps your company take the steps necessary to benefit from disruption -- instead of being eclipsed by it.

“Jeff and Staney emphasize that small acts of creativity can have huge consequences and that ordinary people can do extraordinary things if they can see the opportunities in front of them.” —Mitch Jacobson, Executive Director, Austin Technology Incubator, UT Blackstone LaunchPad, University of Texas at Austin Nearly all of today's major innovation workshops and programs call on organizations to drive innovation. What they miss is that innovation comes from the personal creativity of individuals. And creativity doesn't require an advanced education or technical skills—all employees can be creative. Often, all they lack is a fitting mindset and the right skills. The Creative Mindset brings how-to advice, tools, and techniques from two master innovators who have taught and worked with over half of all Fortune 500 companies. Jeff and Staney DeGraff introduce six essential creative-thinking skills that can be easily mastered with limited practice and remembered as the acronym CREATE: Concentrate, Replicate, Elaborate, Associate, Translate, and Evaluate. These six skills, sequenced as steps, simplify and summarize the most important research on creative thinking and draw on over thirty years of real-world application in some of the most innovative organizations in the world. It's time to rethink the way we make innovation happen. Individual creativity is an immense untapped resource, and you don't have to be Beethoven to make a big difference. As the spirit of chef Gusteau proclaims in the Pixar classic Ratatouille, “Anyone can cook.”
