Dear Reader,

Last night, Martina Skender gave an inspiring talk about a critical point of innovation projects...the start.

As a researcher & innovation strategist, her work involves many business stakeholders.

But her approach to innovation is still very human-centric, and I think you will enjoy hearing about how she handles the difficulty of innovation work.

She gave concrete ways to:

  • Establish a culture of courage
  • Design a system for people to disagree
  • Improve communication through humility

You can watch the full talk below:

Martina was also kind enough to share her slides in a Miro board. Check them out here for a nice collection of innovation assets from the toolbox of a working strategist.

Until next week!
