    Believe in Your Innovation Through Storytelling

    Believe in Your Innovation Through Storytelling

    Why do stories matter to the innovation process? What values can be instilled in innovators who share stories? How do innovation leaders inspire creators to tell and share their success and failure stories? We speak with Eric Cohen, CEO, Entrepreneur, Speaker, Award-winning Inventor of the Reebok PUMP, Technologist, Mentor, Innovator in Consumer, CPG, and Healthcare. We discuss the issue with an innovation that does not have a story. If your innovation falls flat at first, you craft a compelling innovation story and fight for an innovation that you know has an audience by getting to know how to communicate with that audience. Eric shares how even a successful innovation like Swiffer needs a good innovation story, and how no matter what sector your innovation is in, you too can really connect with your audience.

    Building Your Brand Through Internal Storytelling with Scott Kirsner

    Building Your Brand Through Internal Storytelling with Scott Kirsner

    Why do stories matter to the innovation process? What values can be instilled in innovators who share stories? How do innovation leaders inspire creators to tell and share their success and failure stories? We speak with Scott Kirsner, CEO of Innovation Leader, a media and events company focused on Chief Innovation Officers, senior R&D execs, and intrapreneurs at large organizations who are responsible for making change happen. He is also a weekly columnist for the Boston Globe. Find out from Scott why internal storytelling could be the difference between an initiative that is shut down and an initiative that has corporate backing. He also shares how innovation storytelling favors the first teller. Once someone owns a particular story in people's minds, it's very hard for the second player to come along and own that same story; therefore, it’s important to learn how to tell the innovation story best so it sticks in the audience’s minds. Tune in to our latest podcast episode for more insights!
