Special Article – From SOS to WOW!
Dear ASQ Innovation members –
I trust you are using the tips from my “From SOS to WOW! – Breaking Barriers to Innovation” discussion in November to unleash your creative ideas and take courageous action to move innovation forward in your personal and professional lives. Remember to check in on the assumptions we all make about ourselves, others, and situations. Most of the time we are jumping to the wrong conclusion, and it holds us back.

I challenge you to continue to ask yourself, “What would you do differently if the assumption wasn’t true?” We are ALL CREATIVE – solving problems, modifying, and improving ideas, coming up with new ideas – it’s all creativity.

When we decide where we want to be (SWOWSo Well On the Way) to being a creative/innovative person, we make a big goal, think about the options to use to get there, analyze our risk taking tendencies, and practice ways to improve our chances of success (test a prototype, try out our ideas or conversations on others, collect more information…) - we then speak up and take action!
Remember to connect to the values of others and the organization to make sure you are heard, understood, and championed. People will listen if we connect our ideas to what is most important to them.

May the holidays bring you rest, fun, and joy! May the new year be a creative, innovative, joyful journey!

Professional regards,
Ms. Margaret Johnson
