What do you feel is a common roadblock to “INNOVATIVE THINKING” or “COLLABORATION” in the organizations you work with. This answer might pertain to other aspects of your organization, simplexity creative thinking or both.

There are several roadblocks. Some key ones include:
1. Existing culture of the organization and leadership mindset and behaviour (e.g. “my way or the highway” or “I know it all”)
2. Functional silos and desire to maintain status quo
3. Frequent use of killer statements
4. Lack of a structured process for innovation and problem solving
5. Lack of understanding of benefits to an organization that invests in development of innovative thinking skills of its people

Yes.

If Yes, how do you utilize the Profile?

I use the profile in executive selection engagements when there is a need to balance the innovation styles and capabilities at the top of the organization. I use it with employees at other levels to help construct teams problem-solving teams and even relate to each other one on one. I have also given it to coaches and consultants to understand how they typically intervene and what the implications are for what they offer their clients.
