The Best Idea

PRESENTED ON DEC 01, 2016
IN ST JOSEPH @ VOL 7

Frank Cheswick believes that sometimes our best ideas are not new products or services.  A game changing idea may come from an insight into a defect of our character.  Once the defect is identified and controlled, good stuff can happen.

Creativity Loves Constraints: Improvisation, Always our Very Best Alternative

BY GERT POPPE
IN MAASTRICHT

In business as in life, we try to control the future by making (business) strategies and (marketing) plans. But most of the time, things turn our differently, don’t go as planned. And then we fall back on improvisation.

Improvisation always is our very best alternative. We improvise when something unexpected happens; we improvise because we have forgotten to take certain influences into account; we improvise when people behave differently than we expected.

The best leaders, the best managers, the best professionals are not those that excel in analysis and making plans and strategies, but the ones that fully master and exploit their improvisation skills.

And, by the way, improvisation is also a very useful approach to living one’s life.

Passion over Ego, please!

BY DANIËL BECKERS
@ VOL 36 ON JUN 19, 2018

Certain events in life may lead you to find your true passion. But what happens once you are a filmmaker? Do you decline an offer because you do not believe in the project? Do you say no to a project because it’s not in line with your passion even though it may be a good offer or something that may boost your ego? Daniël Beckers explains why we need to protect true passion.
