Not everyone gets ideas the same way. Some love to brainstorm and pull ideas out of thin air. Many read, research, search the web, and find what others are doing and build from what they find. Some draw or doodle or create ideas with sticks or clay. Still others look for patterns and systems and project them outward.

Are you up for the challenge of ensuring your people feel supported in how they instinctively approach the challenges of the future?
