Linkage Developing Leaders Worldwide
Contrary to conventional wisdom, opposites do not attract. As a result, organizations hire and retain people who think alike. Although this is great for efficiency, it destroys innovation. The key to high performing innovation teams is make sure that each individual is “playing to their strong suit” while the organization as a whole is “playing with a full deck.” You need to make sure you have all of the innovation styles fully addressed in your organization.
There are four primary styles with two sub-styles for each:
- Do you love facts and principles?
- Do you crave new ideas and experiences?
- Do you delight in planning and taking action?
- Are you a people person who takes relationships seriously?
- In other words, are you spade, diamond, club, or heart?
