Innovation starts with two self-assessments—one devastating, the other uplifting: what’s the worst part about yourself and the best part about yourself? Once you’ve really identified your greatest weaknesses and strengths, you can determine what kind of people you need to surround yourself with. Find people who are unlike you and who can push you to create the things you can’t on your own.
The Innovation Code presents four dominant worldviews—the main opposing approaches to growth and creativity:
- the Artist
- the Engineer
- the Sage
- the Athlete
