Nov 19th, 2019: “Being Vulnerable is a Key to Innovation” at the Animal Welfare Advancement Fall Conference

November 19, 2019 @ 8:00 am - November 21, 2019 @ 5:00 pm UTC+0

New Horizon Strategies will be keynoting The AAWA 2019 Fall Conference: Advancing Animal Welfare through Collaboration, Leadership, and Innovation (November 18-21, 2019) at the Marriott Marquis, Houston, TX.

Join us on Tuesday, Nov 19th for the Kick Off Keynote at 2:00 – 3:15PM for “Being Vulnerable is a Key to Innovation”.

“We do things right and we do things well.” Would you say this describes your organization? Hopefully it does! Read the values,
vision, or guiding principles of most organizations and you’ll find some form of this description centered on the quality and integrity
of the service or product being delivered. In juxtaposition, for most organizations the word “fail” brings about an instantaneous reaction of “something to avoid”.

Innovation and integrity can be competing values. Though we may logically understand that trying anything for the first time will inherently provide the opportunity to succeed or fail, emotionally and culturally we are not okay with actually failing. The extent to which your organization promotes or chastises failure is in direct correlation with innovation, creativity, trust, collaboration, growth, and resiliency.

This riveting presentation is based in part on Dr. Brené Brown’s Dare to Lead™ concepts. You’ll gain qualitative awareness of failure resiliency, both personally and as perceived within your organization. Laurie will share the formula for creating and sustaining a culture of innovation to increase organizational awareness, plus a checklist of scenarios and keywords that help define missed opportunities for innovation.
