Not everyone is comfortable with innovation.
I once visited DoGaddy HQ outside of Phoenix.
The company is famous (notorious?) for ALWAYS making changes to their interface.
I asked them, “Are you guys every going to stop moving stuff around?”
Very loud laughter was the response.
Innovating is in their blood.
There are 3 things the public speaker/ cruise ship seminar leader can do to ensure they can innovate.
1. Increase your knowledge. Read more. Read things OUTSIDE of your normal interests. Warning – don’t buy the book unless you are going to read the whole thing. But read, watch, listen. Try TED talks, for example.
2. Think. Martin Luther King Jr. said that nothing pains some people more than having to think. Take your thoughts with you to the gym or during your commute and let them incubate. Dwell on them. Do the Old Testament version of mediate = chew the cud. Milk every idea for what it has to offer.
3. Experience Life. Try stuff. Do stuff. Go places, Eat things. Do something, anything that you are not used to. Remember the joy of discovering or learning to detest something new. Both make for great fodder for innovation to your presentation.
Try any or all of these 3 ways and your innovation in your presentations will improve … or your money back. 😎
