Innovation Profiles

In Episode 24, Innovation Profiles, Lori Lovens and I nerd out about the important role that trust and safety play in innovation. We also discuss the innovation spectrum on how people naturally innovate and improvise, while others seek to stabilize and maintain.

As Lori puts it, we all are on a scale of change from chaos to order. On the ends are destructive chaos and stifling control. But in the middle exists space for change and innovation to actually occur through creative chaos and constructive order.
