We have a time crisis. Wherever I go I’m met with the same contradiction: “We desperately need more innovation but no-one has time. The leaders don’t seem to get it.”
Time is supposed to be our most precious asset. But my experience is that most companies have inadvertently designed themselves to squander it.
Bureaucracy, metrics and culture conspire to prevent people from doing their best work. That drains people’s motivation and robs the company of the performance that it hired them for in the first place.
For many, a sense of futility has pulled them into a state of victimhood. A shrug of the shoulders and a “what’s-the-point?” look in their eye. The tail is truly wagging the dog.
But I know that a different way of working is possible, where people’s sense of purpose and motivation are restored, where productivity is high, and where value-sucking activities are shut down quickly.
TIMEOUT is a one-day workshop that transforms the way teams think about time, work, value creation, energy and performance.
The workshop is based on first-hand experience with some of the world's most innovative companies, extensive research, and my own range of practical innovation tools that are designed to help teams make breakthroughs in every area of their performance.
