What is the Essence of Innovation?

Everyone measures innovation differently. Most businesses use some metric that compares productivity, speed, or efficiency with industry benchmarks. If you can do it bigger, faster or cheaper, you’ve been innovative.

At the Team Clock Institute, innovation is seen as the freedom to create and take risks. This freedom arises from the security of having a strong team foundation built from a common vision and tested trust. In this view, innovation is the natural consequence of team health.

Healthy teams are not limited by emotional depletion, controlling relationships or toxic culture. They are empowered by cohesiveness and an appreciation for the wealth that grows from mutual respect of differences and the celebration of change.

Perhaps the result is greater efficiency, a better widget, a string of victories, or a new idea. For innovative teams, the sky is the limit.
