Safety 2016 Kicks Off With Inspiration to Innovate
Frans Johannson, author of the best-selling The Click Moment, shared his unique perspective on what drives innovative ideas in an uncertain world during the open general session at Safety 2016 in Atlanta, GA. Johansson advised attendees to "find inspiration in industries, cultures and disciplines other than your own." He calls these connections intersections and says these are the best places for innovation to occur. Johannson also urged attendees to pay attention when things don't go as expected. "If you are surprised you may have discovered something that can change the rules of the game."
Johannson also created a download for the conference that provides further insight on his ideas and guidance for creating your own click moments. Find the link on our EHS Works blog.
