Like the monkey holding the fruit, many of us cling to the past with clenched fists. We clutch to painful memories, we hold grudges, and we harbour what-ifs.

Found at all levels of the workforce but often stifled by managers, gig mindsetters are disruptors who upend business as usual and bridge gaps while achieving surprising outcomes and charting new directions.

We welcome friend of the Innovation Show and author of yet another fantastic book, Smart Growth: How to Grow Your People to Grow Your Company, Whitney Johnson.

The consultation, the strategy and the sign off are all important parts of the process, but the real change only happens when the rubber hits the road. If you spend all your budget on the script, the expert opinions and the cast and skimp on the execution you fall prey to what I call “The Predator Effect”. Execution without strategy is better than strategy without execution. We learn from execution, what works and equally, if not more valid, what doesn’t work.
