IDEAS WITH LEGS

go from lame ideas to game changing ideas

 

Now more than ever, innovative ideas are the currency for success. While we know innovation is valuable, it’s a sad fact that too many organisations just don’t know how to innovate. 

The good news is no matter how time poor, or how crammed our heads might be with traditional business management skills, with Nils’ innovation techniques we can still find a way to bend time to our advantage and shake up our thinking patterns to start innovating. 

YOU'LL LEARN:

  • What your customers really want and what they are willing to pay for

  • How to tap into the innovation cognition regions of the brain

  • How to facilitate and prompt innovative thinking ideas with just one question

  • How to transform mediocre ideas into game changing ideas

  • How to create a rainmaking idea from scratch

UNTHINKABLE

go from lame ideas to creating ideas that bring fame

We live in a rapidly evolving world that needs people to be adaptive and open to changing how they think.  Rethinking business and life challenges, and who also the ability to think differently to create the ground breaking ideas that effect positive change.  

Being able to ‘un-think' of how things used to be done and rethinking how things 'need' to be done in our evolving world are a must. In this session you will learn how to identify the habits and thinking that hamper your ability to contribute to game changing thinking  & how to re-wire your mind in order to accelerate your success from thinking the unthinkable.

YOU'LL LEARN:

  • How to break your limiting habits and beliefs

  • How to start rewiring what you thought was possible

  • Ways to eliminate unwanted behaviours

  • How to deal with discomfort

Interesting. Great ideas. Insightful.
— Lisa Barnes
I have started using your innovation techniques in every day life as well as work, and experienced startling results. By applying the “Opposite” mindset as a guide, it has opened up a whole new world of thought. There is no better gift then breaking the habits and paradigms, and for that 1 simple thing alone, I will be extremely grateful.
