In this week’s episode, hosts Brandon Miller and Darren Virassammy dive into the 7th of the 12 Manager Intelligence Skills – Innovative. The Manager Intelligence Skills are the habits of what the Best Bosses do – they become the skills that are honed and developed as habits to create sustained teams of highly engaged employees.

In this episode, we will look at the Innovative skill by focusing on the power brought to teams through fostering a team culture which values
collaboration and cooperation. Increasing this skill will allow you to pull
forth the genius found within your team and provide you with the
platform to credit team members for their brilliance.
You will learn to
challenge your team to think outside of the proverbial box and discover
the members of your team who have keen minds for creative solutions.
Problems will be solved and progress will be made!

The Highs and Lows of the Innovative Skill

  • High: I like to bring new ideas and validate new ideas to the team and validate new ideas that come from my team. I challenge my team to think outside the box and welcome their opinions to improve processes and performance.
  • Low: I like to keep things running the way they are. New ideas waste everyone’s time. If my employees want to learn and grow, they do it outside of work.
