We bring 'Cross Pollination' to corporate learning & innovation.
Why would a corporate marketing team spend time with a comic book writer? Why would the R&D team at a cosmetics company collaborate with a car restoration specialist? Because we can learn critical SKILLS and find disruptive SOLUTIONS by looking to OUTSIDE and UNEXPECTED fields. And since most companies don't have a formal system in place to facilitate these unique collaborations, they call us.
The most innovative leaders and organizations "go off the beaten path" and spend time with experts and thought-leaders from OUTSIDE and UNEXPECTED fields to learn about their strategies, processes, tools and technologies...and then CONNECT-THE-DOTS between the information they gather and their own business objectives and priorities.
Unfortunately, the majority of executives and teams aren't taking the time to explore outside areas and perspectives to find novel solutions and learn crucial skills, because this type of industry "CROSS POLLINATION" is an unfamiliar and uncomfortable practice that companies haven't formally systematized or trained their employees to do.
That’s where we come in.
…we strategically pair teams with members of our global network of DIVERSE thought-leaders (the BigHeads) so they can discover UNIQUE insights, strategies, technologies and ideas that will dramatically influence their business. So we'll bring a car restoration specialist to a cosmetics company to help them design disruptive color-matching innovations.
…we develop unique CORPORATE LEARNING PROGRAMS where leading EXPERTS from OUTSIDE fields teach employees critical SKILLS and STRATEGIES they can apply to their business objectives and personal development. So we'll bring an Emmy-winning writer together with a corporate marketing team to teach them storytelling techniques they can use to tell a more compelling brand story.
…we offer an invaluable CROSS POLLINATION TRAINING PROGRAM to help companies foster a culture where collaborating with diverse sources happens more organically and readily, which is essential in today's Disruption Economy.
