Management Salt: 3 Cs of Creating an Innovation Culture

3 Critical Components of an Innovation Culture are:

Curiosity

Compassion

and

Courage.

Curiosity:

Curiosity is the primary driver for learning, exploring, asking, observing, seeking and experimenting.

Curiosity allows us to suspend our opinions and judgements, and stuckness to the past and opens the possibility of finding out new facts, new paradigms, new data points and through all of them new worlds or parts of the world we didn’t know exist.

Compassion:

Compassion allows the space of empathy, deep connection with people, seeing the world from other’s eyes.

Innovation is difference making, when it is done enriched by the viewing the situation, challenges and opportunities from the view of the users, customers and stakeholders.

Courage:

Courage facilitates a new relationship with fear and failure, which is critical for the space of innovation. Courage to try out the new,take some risk, experiment, fail, learn and try again many times over.

Curiosity, Compassion and Courage in the teams will allow learning, collaboration and co-creation as the stepping stones for innovation and innovation culture.
