Let's face it. You've got a WHOPPER of a problem. Perhaps you or your organization must:
Innovate the Future
Change is Hard)
from the Crowd
Income & Impact
Promote Your Idea
Success to Significance
Get Something Done
Stop the pain
So you build a problem-solving community that dives in valiantly.
But solutions are underwhelming, a far cry from the bold visioning required. Proposals feel oddly
familiar--repackaged status quo with minor surface tweaks.
Worse yet, your team is at odds. Competing priorities and a lack of focus mean conversation
leaps unpredictably, possibly landing in paralysis.
