Innovative: Exceed Expectations

Last week I presented a one-hour "fluff" program for a group of bank managers. Literally, the client's entire expectation of me was to get the students (it was a one-week banking school) to know each other and to start the school off with some fun and interaction. Since almost 98.6% of my keynotes and workshops are fun and interactive, this was not a very difficult expectation to exceed. However, my expectation for myself was to exceed it by providing the group valuable leadership insights both at the program and afterwards via this blog.

This act in and of itself is an example of how to be innovative in the business environ. Take what is expected of you and push outside the envelope. When you force yourself and your team to do that habitually, you will in turn be creative habitually.
