Innovation & Creation: Your Jumpstart to a New Year & a New Vision (Part I)

Meeting Description:

Join ?What If!, the world's largest independent innovation consultancy, as they share six creative behaviors that will help you unleash creativity and unlock innovation.

Why behaviors? Adopting and following a specific process won't guarantee innovation. It’s getting people to behave in the right way throughout the process that creates the magic.

These behaviors are based on what some of the world's most creative people and companies do on a daily basis. Whatever your job, whatever you do, these behaviors can be adapted and applied to how you work.

The six behaviors will be brought to life with:

  • Stories from ?What If!'s experience on over 2500 projects around the world for companies such as Coca-Cola, Johnson & Johnson, Unilever, American Express, Kimberly-Clarke, HSBC, Red Bull, etc.
  • Examples from companies that embody these behaviors and have been recognized by the Great Place to Work Institute  

These are the same behaviors that ?What If! learning specialists have trained to more than 10,000 people globally: Greenhousing, Freshness, Signaling, Realness, Momentum, and Bravery.

Join us to discover your maximum innovative potential!

Before joining ?What If! New York, Hal was President of Great Place to Work ® Institute, the global management research and consulting firm that creates the gold standard for recognizing great workplaces; the "FORTUNE 100 Best Companies to Work For". Prior to assuming the position of President at the Great Place to Work® Institute in 2006, Hal held various leadership roles on the Institute's consulting team, heading up employee focused workplace transformation projects for large and small companies across a wide range of industries. He was also the founder of Training Arts Institute, as well as the VP of Talent Solutions for the Center for Talent Retention.

Hal brings a wide, diverse perspective to his life and client work. Professional opera singer, orchestral and choral conductor, chef and San Francisco restaurant owner are just a few titles that Hal has held during his pre-consulting days. All the while, his favorite title has been dad (or dude, depending on who he's hanging with). Hal lives right outside of San Francisco with his wife and 2 young children.
