Create a Pixar-Style Brain Trust!

Last week in the Annual Meeting of the World Economic Forum held in Davos Switzerland, 2,500 world leaders rallied to further their tall order mission…”committed to improving the state of the world.” The theme was “The Great Transformation: Shaping New Models.”

In their 100-page agenda, here is a list of the “hot” words along with the number of times each was mentioned:

Economic – 76
Innovation – 35
Political - 33
War – 24
Governance – 14

Wow, even in this media crazed political cycle, Innovation, won out. It takes more than political rhetoric…our world-leaders need to learn from Pixar-style innovation that can be applied in any organization, and is essential for any long-term transformation. One way you can revamp your culture is by forming a brain trust – a group of fellow “radical” free-thinking activists who are willing to dream big!
