What Is Your Innovator Profile? with Gaia Grant

Discover how well you navigate the 4 key innovation paradoxes to realise your innovation potential

Have you ever discovered your innovation strengths? Where you sit on the continuum of 4 key innovation paradoxes can determine how you can most effectively contribute to the innovation process. You may be more of an Entrepreneur or a Processor, a Collaborator or Connector. Each of these has specific strengths and contributions to the innovation process. Gaia Grant’s research with the University of Sydney Business School has led to the development of the unique iCLi Profile Tool, which reveals how different innovator profiles can best manage innovation. By identifying 4 key innovation paradoxes and how to navigate them, Gaia demonstrates how to not just survive but to thrive in ‘the innovation race’. Her research on the paradox theory and how to apply it to innovation has caught the attention of leading international academics and companies, and she has presented on at a number of universities and for corporate clients internationally.

Taking a fascinating global perspective and drawing on 30 years of international innovation consulting with world innovation leaders, the presentation includes fascinating facts and case studies from Gaia’s breakthrough book The Innovation Race. The result is a fast-paced immersion experience that combines both practical examples and unique theoretical perspectives.
