On this week’s episode of “The Innovation Engine” podcast we take a look at the power of productive thinking. We talk about why the act of thinking can actually be physically demanding, the 6 steps in the productive thinking process, and how to avoid pitfalls like Monkey Mind, Gator Brain, and the Elephant’s Tether.
Tim Hurson, one of the world’s leading experts on corporate innovation, joins us to talk about those topics and more. Tim is the author of Think Better: An Innovator’s Guide to Productive Thinking and co-author of Never Be Closing: How to Sell Better Without Screwing Your Clients, Your Colleagues, or Yourself. Throughout his career, Tim has helped Fortune 500 and FTSE 100 organizations in the US, Canada, and the UK create innovation, marketing, new product, and workplace transformation programs.
He’s a Founding Partner at ThinkX Intellectual Capital, an innovation consulting firm that teaches Productive Thinking, a core skill for developing new products and processes, new organizational structures, new marketing and business strategies, and solve problems in general.
