The Truth About Innovation With Stephen Shapiro – This Week's Six Pixels Of Separation Podcast

Posted by

Episode #589 of Six Pixels of Separation – The Mirum Podcast is now live and ready for you to listen to.

Here’s another individual that I have known for many years and – for some silly reason – has never been on this show. When I think about innovation and how to drive change for brands, I think about the work that Stephen Shapiro is doing. Stephen has spent decades showing business leaders and their teams how to approach, tackle and solve their business challenges. His core focus has always been showing brands opportunities to improve innovation models and the cultures that support them. The first innovation opportunity Stephen spotted was the opportunity to innovate within his own life. Halfway through his 15 year tenure at Accenture, while leading the company’s business process reengineering practice, he realized he no longer wanted to be responsible for people losing their jobs. So he did exactly the opposite by building Accenture’s thriving 20,000-person process and innovation practice, focused on growth and job creation. He then decided to become a noted bestselling author, thinker and consultant. He has published many great books including, 24/7 Innovation, Goal-Free Living, The Little Book of Big Innovation Ideas, Personality Poker and Best Practices Are Stupid. If that were not enough, He is also actively involved with Girl Starter. He is a judge and mentor on the television show (TLC), with the goal of encouraging and enabling your women to launch their own businesses. Enjoy the conversation…
