Fishing and Innovation?

You may be wondering what innovation and creativity has to do with fishing! True, at first glance, it is very unclear! But, Dennis Stauffer author and founder of Innovator Mindset™, a company that helps organizations enhance their innovative capacity, uses fishing as a way to explain “innovation essentials.”

Ok, the analogy goes something like this…. You can “give” someone a fish or provide them with the expertise needed to catch the fish, just like the old saying goes! The feeling is mutual, in Stauffer’s eyes, when it comes to being innovative. You can “give”  someone (or a team) the answers or provide them with an added level of expertise that boost innovation! The goal is to “Take your business to the next level by taking your thinking to the next level!”

“The charm of fishing is that it is the pursuit of what is elusive but attainable, a perpetual series of occasions for hope.”  

~John Buchan, Scottish Novelist and Historian
