    Carla Johnson - RE:Think Innovation

    Carla Johnson - RE:Think Innovation

    Interview by Chicke Fitzgerald of the Game Changer Network, showcased on C-Suite Network 
    "All my life I’ve found opportunities where others didn’t. And I’ve delivered results others couldn’t. I’ve launched companies.
    Grown others. Taught people how to think differently. Helped them reach extraordinary results."
    People think innovation isn’t sustainable, so they make it much harder than it has to be. Experts portray it as confusing and complicated so they can charge big fees. Executives make it intimidating and complex, so they appear smarter and important. Traditional innovators imply you need a special degree or training to know how to do it right. The truth is, consistently coming up with great ideas isn’t a talent one is born with or a skill that takes years to learn. It’s actually a simple 5-step framework that anyone can follow to look at the work that they do differently, and have a bigger impact on the people they serve.
    RE:Think Innovation answers the question of how to tie individual competence with innovation techniques to direct corporate outcomes. Within its pages, Carla Johnson shows how to create a unified, idea-driven employee base that delivers more ideas in a shorter amount of time. Ultimately, this is the path that makes organizations genuinely nimble, passionate, innovative powerhouses that deliver extraordinary outcomes for sustained periods of time.

    Susan Tyson - Marketing Essentials for Small Business

    Susan Tyson - Marketing Essentials for Small Business

    Interview by Chicke Fitzgerald of the Game Changer Network showcased on C-Suite Network 
    Marketing strategy is so important to a small business, yet oftentimes marketing initiatives are relegated to the bottom of a business owner’s to do list -- after sales, operations and finance.
    Without some background and training, marketing can seem superfluous and unnecessary.
    A focus on sales – and that big sales win -- is more likely to get a business owner’s adrenalin pumping.
    Getting the office into shape, hiring under control, manufacturing processes structured and financial processes established can be so neat and structured and satisfying when you cross off the items on your to-do list.
    Yet the lack of a comprehensive overarching strategy can lead business owners to decisions that aren’t the best for the company’s long-term health and, in fact, could stifle the organization.
    Chinese general and military strategist, Sun Tzu, said it best:
    Tactics without strategy is the noise before defeat.
    In my book, Marketing Essentials for Small Business, I cover the basics of marketing strategy in simple, direct, easy-to-understand language and direction.

In grade eight, his poem was published. By grade nine his dream was forgotten and he settled for working with his family in their meat shop. His dreams of being an actor faded because he didn’t see or seize the opportunity to act and entertain. Today he entertains, trains and coaches thousands of people how to live the life of their dreams.

    Dianne Crampton - Becoming TIGERS

    Dianne Crampton - Becoming TIGERS

    Interview by Chicke Fitzgerald of the Game Changer Network, showcased on C-Suite Network
    When is the last time you cried while reading a business book? Be warned, Dianne Crampton’s fourth published work, Becoming TIGERS – Leading Your Team to Success, is not your father’s business book. In this emotionally engaging novel, Crampton uses the best traditions of learning by parable to take us on a transformative journey through the jungle of myths, mistakes, and mastery of leadership. Apply the lessons from this engaging novel and you’ll improve your leadership skills for the rest of your life.

    Derek, a young manager and project team leader, is a mess. He has been given an ultimatum: improve his leadership behavior or find employment elsewhere. Multiple employees quit because of him and provided a laundry list of reasons why Derek is a terrible boss. Now, Derek has only the weekend to self-reflect and craft a plan to save his job. He digs deep to muster the energy to help his third-grade daughter with a weekend reading assignment about a tiger lord on the brink of losing his tribe when faced with a life-threatening event. The parallel to Derek’s own crisis is... enlightening.

    Through the pages of Becoming TIGERS, Crampton addresses key leadership and teamwork mistakes from the lens of a micro-managing, command and control leader who is faced with devastating losses. What Derek learns from a pointed children’s fable just might change everything!

    Sometimes the best lessons in life are the simplest. If you are tired of traditional business management books with very little empathy for the challenges you face, then add Becoming TIGERS to your bookshelf today. It just may transform your life!

    DIANNE CRAMPTON is one of North America's leading experts on corporate team culture and is a sought-after Workforce Development Consultant, Workforce Behavior Improvement Coach, Speaker and Author. While obtaining her advanced degree in Organizational Leadership from Gonzaga University, Crampton conducted comprehensive research on group dynamics, and discovered that the six TIGERS® principles (Trust, Interdependence, Genuineness, Empathy, Risk and Success) are necessary for building ethical, quality-focused, productive, motivated and successful groups of people. Her TIGERS system has been independently tested twice for its ability to predict and prescribe -- with certainty -- on-target and just-in-time team interventions and training. 

    Crampton has presented the TIGERS model to organizations like the National Institute of Applied Business Ethics and the United Nations Sponsored Inter-generational Conference. TIGERS was nominated by Merrill Lynch for Inc. Magazine’s Entrepreneur of the Year Awards.
