USE THE FORCE: WHAT TO DO IF YOU WORK FOR DARTH VADER
Back in July, I wrote a post titled “Searching For Your Jedi: What Star Wars Can Teach Us About Hiring Innovative Talent.” I offered specific interview questions managers could ask to ensure they are hiring their next Luke Skywalker or Princess Leia. But I was checked by a reader who offered me some constructive feedback, saying my advice was all well and good for managers, but what about the creative, problem-solving, go-getter employees who find themselves facing down an evil boss like Darth Vader. How do they stay motivated to innovate if they work for the Dark Side?
YOU SHOULD READ THESE - WE DID!
WHAT CLIENTS SAY
“Exactly"…is what I said after every chapter. This book put words in my mouth, literally. After reading part one, I was armed with a clear point of view of the friction between operations and innovation. The demand for creative and innovative solutions with policies, systems and culture of the past is an impossible feat, or so it seemed. But after reading the rest of the book, I truly did see a path forward. I could try the activities and how to guides in real-life work situations and oh my…I got others saying “exactly" too.
