Are You Brainstorming the Right Way for Innovation? [Podcast]
In research on innovation, there has been an idea that breakthrough innovations, those with the highest impact, are ones that are produced through … what we call “re-combination” or combination processes of distant and diverse knowledge. Specifically, we found that different types of creativity contribute to the novelty in the knowledge space — how novel the idea is relative to the economic value that is created.
Leading a Brainstorming Session with a Cross-Cultural Team
Brainstorming is the default way in which many teams and organizations come up with new ideas. And it’s commonly said that the more diverse the group, the greater the potential for innovative ideas. However, it doesn’t always work out this way.
Mindfulness at Work: Using Mindful Leadership in the Workplace
The workplace can be a fast-paced, stressful environment. Is it possible to thrive, rather than flounder, in the work environment? The key may lie with mindfulness – gently noticing what is going on for us, in the present moment, without passing judgment.
Though the research is somewhat lagging in the area of mindfulness at work and mindful leadership, it is nevertheless growing in interest. This article allows me to (hopefully) capture and share the power of mindfulness at work, and the article will also explore another relevant and related topic – mindful leadership.

Corporate D&I - CQ Researcher
Although corporate America spends billions annually on diversity and inclusion (D&I) programs, most companies have not made many gains in hiring a diverse workforce. An influential 2019 study by Coqual, a New York think tank, found that corporate America's efforts to increase diversity are failing, in part because of a reluctance to discuss race at the workplace. Efforts to improve D&I programs took on greater urgency in the wake of George Floyd's death in May and the nationwide protests against systemic racism that followed. CEOs from Walmart, PwC and other companies announced plans to fight economic and racial injustices, including strengthening their D&I efforts. Conservatives, however, argue that D&I training can be divisive and anti-American, and the Trump administration issued an executive order restricting government contractors and federal agencies from providing diversity training that includes such terms as white privilege. Incoming President Joe Biden is expected to undo this order, and he has appointed the most diverse Cabinet in the nation's history.
Systemic Racism - CQ Researcher
Black Americans are more likely than white Americans to get shot by police, to contract COVID-19 and to be incarcerated. Anger at a lack of racial equality boiled over after the killing of George Floyd, an African American, at the hands of Minneapolis police in May, igniting possibly the largest civil rights protests in U.S. history. The national conversation that followed Floyd's killing has focused on what many activists call systemic racism and what should be done about it. More than 150 years after slavery's abolition, Black Americans still lag in many common measures of opportunity and prosperity, including income, homeownership, education and health care. Democrats, including presidential nominee Joe Biden, want substantial changes in police practices and more government investment in housing and education. But President Trump and many Republicans say the nation has made considerable progress on achieving equality and that the best way to help Black Americans is to strengthen the economy and lower unemployment. They see the Black Lives Matter movement as divisive.
