Innovation is a broad theme, but when you look closely, you can break it down to four main components. Understanding how these features impact your workplace dynamics creates fantastic results. (Namely, an environment that’s actually fun! And who doesn’t what that?)

Day of Innovation 2018 is presented by Centric, an Indianapolis-based nonprofit. I had a blast attending and wanted to share what I learned from Chris Denson’s talk with all of you. If you’re feeling stuck with a ho-hum office or a burnt-out team, this content will be right up your alley.

After you check out this video, head on down to the comments section. I’d love to hear your thoughts on how innovation makes your workplace better—and how you encourage it for everyone on our team. The whole world benefits when we share our insights!
