Value diversity and inclusion, embrace differences and create alignment, maximize potential and achieve significance... These are the things organizations say they must do to innovate, attract top talent, and compete in America’s uncertain, multigenerational, multicultural marketplaces. But most organizations have no idea how to do this sustainably, if at all. The new book The Innovation Mentality: Six Strategies to Disrupt the Status Quo and Reinvent the Way We Work by Glenn Llopis offers a new solution.

The Innovation Mentality offers a new strategy for success, because without that strategy, change is merely substitution not evolution. The book instead compels leaders and entire organizations to embrace a new mindset – an innovation mentality mindset – for renewal, reinvention, and growth that empowers them to stay ahead of the rapid changes in the workplace and marketplace by:

*seeing beyond the obvious

*identifying opportunity and performance gaps

*avoiding complacency and unknowingly creating tension

*maximizing people’s full potential

*driving sustainable growth through the Cultural Demographic Shift

To achieve this, The Innovation Mentality lays out six strategies that require leaders to embrace diversity of thought as the competitive advantage for business evolution in the workplace and marketplace and driving growth throughout the organization:

  1. See Opportunities in Everything

  2. Anticipate the Unexpected

  3. Unleash Your Passionate Pursuits

  4. Live With an Entrepreneurial Spirit

  5. With a Generous Purpose

  6. Lead to Leave a Legacy

In The Innovation Mentality, leaders learn to master those strategies and operationalize them by forging like-mindedness through our mosaic of differences rather than a melting pot of inauthentic and manufactured assimilation.

And here’s the most important thing about The Innovation Mentality: It works – the content has been validated through Llopis’ work with and research on Fortune 500 companies and others.

“Leaders claim to want innovation but they keep managing by the templates of old,” says Llopis. “These templates see people as cost centers not profit centers. The result is dysfunctional, tension-fueled workplaces that make it difficult to drive sustainable growth. Instead of seizing opportunities, organizations of all sizes and across all industries are solving for the wrong ones and thus widening productivity gaps, weakening the potential of our workforce, and dismantling the evolution of business growth.”

The Innovation Mentality is an urgent call-to-action that guides organizations on how to immediately apply evolutionary thinking, strengthen their wisdom, achieve significance, and reinvent the workplace to create and sustain real growth in the marketplace.
