    • Leading Innovation
      How can you encourage your team to innovate?
      It’s helpful first to be sensitive to what can
      discourage innovation
       
      A new idea is delicate, it can be killed by a sneer or a yawn; it can be stabbed to death by a quip and
      worried to death by a frown on the right man’s brow.
      [Charles Brower]
