Maybe the bosses want to protect the company and are not as open to innovation as you’d like them to be. In this situation, it is important that you keep your enthusiasm and start implementing the tips below.
- Innovate your meetings: For faster, more effective meetings, try stand-up meetings. The whole meeting changes when you get up. It takes a lot less time to finish the meeting standing up, and you’re taking real action at the same time. Plus, attendees aren’t distracted by phones or computers, so the meeting stays more focused. You will soon find that the meetings become much more effective and shorter at the same time. Because you spend less time in meetings, you have more time for real work.
- Stop whining and start doing: Whether you have a problem that you want to solve or just a new idea that you think is cool, don’t just talk about it and start working on it. Write a report, draw a business model, give a presentation or prototype it. When you have materials to show to others, others may take you more seriously and give you their support. Otherwise, at the end of the day, no one will remember your idea just talking about it with no evidence.
- Have brainstorming meetings: Gather a group of co-workers, especially those you trust and are comfortable with, and think about what issues you think need solving or improving. Encourage each other to try new things and contribute to each other’s ideas. This way you can inspire and innovate from one another.
- Start small: You don’t have to do a major innovation from the start. Start with small projects that you believe will eventually add up and make a difference. Small projects are completed faster and thus you can achieve success and the appreciation of your employees more quickly. For example; You can start innovating your meetings first. By doing these small projects, you may be able to jump into larger projects with ease. When people see you deliver, they’ll trust you more and keep you working on bigger projects.
