    Innovation 2.0: Shortcuts and Speed Bumps

    Innovation 2.0: Shortcuts and Speed Bumps

    Most of us love to brainstorm with colleagues. But so often, our idea-generating sessions don't lead to anything tangible. Teams fill up walls with sticky notes about creative possibilities and suggestions for improvement, but nothing actually gets implemented. Some researchers even have a name for it: "innovation theater." This week, we explore the science of execution. Psychologist Bob Sutton tells us how to move from innovation theater . . . to actual innovation.

    Innovation 2.0: The Influence You Have

    Innovation 2.0: The Influence You Have

    Think about the last time you asked someone for something. Maybe you were nervous or worried about what the person would think of you. Chances are that you didn’t stop to think about the pressure you were exerting on that person. This week, we continue our Innovation 2.0 series with a 2020 episode about a phenomenon known as as “egocentric bias.” We talk with psychologist Vanessa Bohns about how this bias leads us astray, and how we can use this knowledge to ask for the things we need.

    Your Questions Answered: Arash Javanbakht on Fear

    Your Questions Answered: Arash Javanbakht on Fear

    We all know what it's like to be in the grip of fear. And while our intuition is to avoid the things we're afraid of, this can paradoxically make the problem worse. We recently talked with psychiatrist Arash Javanbakht about how we can cope with these intense feelings. This week, he returns to the show to respond to listeners’ questions about everything from spider-related fears to anxieties over air travel.

    If you missed our original conversation with Arash Javanbakht, you can find it in this podcast feed. It's the episode called "Fear Less."

    Innovation 2.0: Multiplying the Growth Mindset

    Innovation 2.0: Multiplying the Growth Mindset

    Have you ever been in a situation where you felt that people wrote you off? Maybe a teacher suggested you weren't talented enough to take a certain class, or a boss implied that you didn't have the smarts needed to handle a big project. In the latest in our "Innovation 2.0 series," we talk with Mary Murphy, who studies what she calls "cultures of genius." We'll look at how these cultures can keep people and organizations from thriving, and how we can create environments that better foster our growth.

    Innovation 2.0: How Big Ideas Are Born

    Innovation 2.0: How Big Ideas Are Born

    Why is it so hard to guess where we're meant to be? To predict where we'll end up? Nearly all of us have had the experience of traveling down one road, only to realize it's not the road for us. At the University of Virginia, Saras Sarasvathy uses the lens of entrepreneurship to study how we plan and prepare for the future. We kick off our new "Innovation 2.0" series by talking with Saras about how we pursue goals and make decisions.

    Parents: Keep Out!

    Parents: Keep Out!

    If you're a parent or a teacher, you've probably wondered how to balance play and safety for the kids in your care. You don't want to put children in danger, but you also don't want to rob them of the joy of exploration. This week, we talk with psychologist Peter Gray about how this balance has changed — for parents and children alike — and what we can do about it.
