The Power of Wonder

What do the world’s most innovative people do differently than everyone else, and how to be more like them.

Jeff describes how he rediscovered how to harness his childlike sense of wonder. We stop seeing the things around us and questioning everything around us.

  • Remove filters and open your minds.
  • Info-sponge: Step outside of your industry and business and see how others do things. Let your mind go.
  • Connecting data points creates innovation
  • Filter data by determining what is and is not relevant to your customer.
Proven Principles to Scale Your Business

Businesses get stuck. You need to get certain critical points right in order to achieve hockey stick growth.

  • Team Building and leadership
  • Stop working on your business and step back and not work in it.
  • Automatic/outsource things that are not your secret sauce
  • Crowdsource questions – someone else has the answer. Connect with other companies in your industry.
  • Determine your leverage points for industry, exploit advantages do you have that other companies in your industry don’t?
Leadership

Leadership depends on teams. Traditional methods of finding employees will miss the rockstars. Find stars non-traditionally – you need to go find them.

  • Surround yourself with people who are smarter than you
  • Get out of there way
  • Lead by serving
