Innervation B I Z

  1. 2. Innervation Redesign Yourself For A smarter Future AUTHOR: Guy Browning PUBLISHER: Pearson Education Limited UK DATE OF PUBLICATION: 2001 NUMBER OF PAGES: 213 pages Book pic
  2. 3. <ul><li>Here is a funny, frank, and refreshing book on how to not only survive but also succeed in today’s new economy –or at least get what you want out of life and work while stepping on as few people as possible. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>This one tackles the big issues like what kind of person do you really want to be (a bastard? there are many of them in business) -are you living for the future or are you stuck in an old economy dinosaur company? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Guy Browning says exactly what nobody else dares to say about real-life/work issues, and that’s why it’s so fresh. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Redesigning yourself means working hard on the brand that is You. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>How do you get out of the rut you’re currently in? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>What are the new Ten Commandments for the millennium? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>How do you learn to really listen, relax, work, and be happy? </li></ul></ul>THE BIG IDEA Innovate where it counts. Inside.
  3. 4. THE BIG IDEA <ul><li>Everything from sexual politics to creativity, to trashing old economy leaders, discovering the real meaning of networking, and making effective, short, and simple communications, to managing people who are “less talented and good looking” than yourself – it’s all in a light and punchy addition to your business library! </li></ul><ul><li>The three big assumptions about you </li></ul><ul><ul><li>You want to make good things happen </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>You want to balance life and work </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>You can think for yourself </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Innervation is about a new way of being, thinking, and doing. You only have control over yourself. So it’s about time you started shaping up and getting with the program. </li></ul>
  4. 5. <ul><li>Communication, the Internet, mobile phones, and mass media assault us every day. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>They sell things to us, and tell us how to live our lives. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Ironically, increased communication doesn’t necessarily mean more people are happy today than they were ten years ago, nor do people actually listen to what the other person is really saying… </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Our work environments have changed, our offices are designed to be homey, and our homes are designed to have offices in them! Bosses have disappeared in this age of highly skilled workers. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>More and more people are working from home. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Small businesses thrive as specialized teams are assigned to tackle specific jobs and then disband once the project is completed. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Today’s information age has allowed consumers the power to choose. Brand loyalty may now depend on a company’s ethical practices. </li></ul></ul>THE FUTURE IS NOW
  5. 6. <ul><li>There used to be a lot of teen-age stock option instant millionaires that used their raging hormones to drive their slick new Internet companies. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>But it wasn’t long before these great whiz kids showed no profit, no office, and no truly great idea. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Most ended up losing all their money and becoming poor teen-aged students, like everyone else. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>How to get ahead by being a bastard (and waste your life doing it): </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Talk loud and don’t listen to other people </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Don’t help anyone do anything </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Over-promise and under-deliver </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Lie and then lie about lying </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Talk behind other people’s backs </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Take the credit for other people’s efforts </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Bully people weaker than you are </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Waste other people’s time </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Concentrate on money and power </li></ul></ul>THE OLD NEW ECONOMY
  6. 7. <ul><li>How to be happy </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Being busy doing something constructive is the fastest way to happiness because it keeps you and your mind occupied. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Clearly define your brand values. The brand is you. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Communicate brand definition to all. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Exercise rigorous quality control for the product. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Build functional and emotional benefits. What should people value you for? </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Brand every detail of delivery. Do things your own way! </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Be consistent in brand communication. Treat all people and situations equally. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Guard brand equities. Don’t let other people ride over what’s dear to you, whether it be your family, or your dreams and aspirations. </li></ul></ul>THE OLD NEW ECONOMY
  7. 8. <ul><ul><li>Train for better brand delivery. Keep acquiring new skills. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Constantly nurture affection for the brand. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Service your relationships with family, friends, and workmates. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Taking someone for granted is the surest way to lose them. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Life is continually evolving and you should evolve along with it. </li></ul></ul>THE OLD NEW ECONOMY
  8. 9. <ul><li>First. Get moving. Take your dog for a walk. Go to the gym. Ride a bike or go roller-blading. Do something! </li></ul><ul><li>Second, do your laundry, clean all your dirty dishes, throw away your trash and old stuff and pour yourself a large drink while playing a CD at an unethically high volume, then dance around like an idiot until you collapse with exhaustion. </li></ul><ul><li>When you get into bed tell yourself things are a lot worse in other parts of the world. </li></ul>EMERGENCY DE-GLUMMING PROGRAMME
  9. 10. <ul><li>Stick to your own agenda. Stress comes from doing too many things for other people. Learn to politely say ‘no’ and guard your time. </li></ul><ul><li>If it isn’t necessary, don’t do it. </li></ul><ul><li>Say thank you, but no thank you. Just say no when people ask you for too much of your time and energy. </li></ul><ul><li>Get ahead by meeting the deadline early so you know you have more time to revise and make improvements. </li></ul><ul><li>Never take your work home. Your family has better things to talk about. </li></ul><ul><li>Jealously guard your time and space. Put time in your diary for things you really need and want to do for yourself. </li></ul><ul><li>Relax your body and your mind will follow. </li></ul><ul><li>Laugh, eat well, and enjoy company. Life is meant to be enjoyed! </li></ul><ul><li>Relax, it’s only a job. It’s not Bosnia. </li></ul>RULES TO REDUCE STRESS TO A MINIMUM

  11. 12. <ul><li>As a general rule, the more painful the experience, the better you learn the lesson. </li></ul><ul><li>Things in life are sent to you in order for you to learn from them. Remember, you are a one-person learning organization. </li></ul><ul><li>Here are some useful lessons that are best learned the hard way. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>It takes real life experience to internalize them, you may not fully grasp some unless you put this paper away in a drawer, live your life a couple of years, and then return to it when you’re throwing old papers away. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>It would be good to look at this list of ‘tough and painful lessons to learn’ more often: </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Don’t neglect yourself. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Value you own judgment </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Beware of those you threaten </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Don’t be too open too soon </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Keep things in perspective </li></ul></ul></ul>HOW TO BE GOOD IN A BAD WORLD

  13. 14. <ul><ul><ul><li>Never assume </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Confront bullies </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Trust your instincts </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Everything takes longer </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Don’t trust “authority” </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Don’t play with matches </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>No effort, no reward </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Details matter </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Make sure instructions are understood </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Be nice on the way up </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>You can’t do everything by yourself </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Get it in writing </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Understand the value of “no” </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Understand other’s aspirations </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Other people have other standards </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Get it in writing </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>You have the right to get what you want </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Don’t assume support in a crisis </li></ul></ul></ul>HOW TO BE GOOD IN A BAD WORLD
  14. 15. <ul><li>Hard to say, but the sad truth is most of what evolution has done to men has simply transferred their hunting instinct to the workplace. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Everything they do at work is a sexual display of who can reproduce and survive better. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Today’s modern workplace appreciates and values the feminine qualities of multi-tasking, communicating, kindness, and consistency of service. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>In tribal societies, women always did 80% of the useful work, and men went off hunting, not really to supplement the vegetables women planted, but to simply show off. </li></ul><ul><li>There are many powerful, intelligent and high-earning women today, and many men are learning to accept that their spouses may be earning more than they are. </li></ul>SEXUAL POLITICS – WHO’S ON TOP?
  15. 16. CREATIVITY <ul><li>If you think Viagra was a hit, think of the profits for the first company that manufactures a legal, non-addictive, mind-altering drug. </li></ul><ul><li>Business is probably more creative than the field of the arts. Art has lost its function in a world where clever ideas are not limited to those who wield a paintbrush or a pot of clay. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Being good in business is the most fascinating kind of art. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>The biggest thing in the arts world in the last decade was a sliced sheep in a Perspex case. There might be more artistry in the latest mobile phone than in the Turner Prize. </li></ul><ul><li>Give yourself these 3 things and stop making the excuse that you are not creative. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>You need these three things: quiet, time, and permission, to unleash your creative nature. </li></ul></ul>
  16. 17. CREATIVITY <ul><li>Still blank? Try Object A and object B… </li></ul><ul><ul><li>A good formula is to take two unrelated things and see how you can associate them. Let’s improve a product, say, yogurt, by focusing on the qualities of water. The yogurt can come in transparent packaging. There! You just had a creative idea because you applied one concept to a product. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>If you’ve solved every aspect of the problem and you still have a problem, then maybe the problem is you. </li></ul></ul>
  17. 18. <ul><li>Use your personal opinions, knowledge, and experience in a more effective manner, or look for new opinions, knowledge and experiences other than those you currently have. </li></ul><ul><li>Ideas come when you relax and open yourself to them. Just let it all flow out of your mind and onto a piece of paper. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>You can take any two unrelated objects and use one to play off the other for new ideas. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>When you’re a creative individual you are able to shift your frame of reference at will, seeing all sorts of possibilities and potential in any environment. </li></ul><ul><li>Real creativity takes getting down to the real question behind the question. </li></ul>RULE NUMBER ONE FOR CREATIVITY IS TO THINK
  18. 19. <ul><li>Take this copy: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>“ We aim to delight our customers and exceed their expectations by supplying a one-stop shop of environmentally friendly products and services, anytime anywhere and anyhow, benchmarking against best practice to be a world-class organization. We will do this by empowering our greatest asset, our people, in an e-enabled, flexible, and coaching working environment.” </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Sounds like all the fancy new jargon but it really doesn’t mean anything to your audience. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Ditch the clichés and go for something more like this copy: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>“ You know money isn’t the end all and be all in life. You also know how important money is to do the things you want to do in life. You probably want to concentrate on holidays, education, getting a new car, paying for the house. We can help you with this – tell us how you want to manage your life and we’ll help you to manage your money to make more of the good things happen.” </li></ul></ul>RULE NUMBER ONE FOR CREATIVITY IS TO THINK
  19. 20. <ul><li>Now doesn’t that sound much better? </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Get stuck in clichés and you lose touch with an ever-changing reality. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>People who say no to new ideas usually say no because they can’t visualize it or they are so stuck in an existing view of the world they see nothing outside of it. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>In the new economy, you have to think first, use information second, and always remember that information is no substitute for imagination, intuition and pure thought. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>The map of the human heart </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Mapping the human heart into four quadrants: needs, desires, reliability and enjoyment can explain how you see your partner, a job, a bank, or a brand of toothpaste. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>People buy into ideas because of the emotional and the rational. </li></ul></ul>RULE NUMBER ONE FOR CREATIVITY IS TO THINK
  20. 21. <ul><ul><li>Passionate affairs concentrate on the desire and enjoyment side, while happy marriages involve the need and reliability side of the map. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Your relationships with the people you work and live with determine if you are a bad or good egg. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Can you be counted on? </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Are you an all around good person? </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Do people genuinely like you and want to be around you? </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Your emotional intelligence can take you further in the new economy, more than your regular IQ or MBA or PhD. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>It’s really about how you nurture relationships: with clients, suppliers, colleagues, family, and friends. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>If you can’t manage your own home or department, how can you manage anything bigger? </li></ul></ul></ul>RULE NUMBER ONE FOR CREATIVITY IS TO THINK
  21. 22. <ul><li>Start with you. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Be your own boss. Now this doesn’t necessarily mean quit your job and start a business, it means work on your own initiative, supervise your own quality standards, treat people as they want to be treated, and if you are a boss, please make sure you are not an Old Economy type of boss. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Manage your bosses better than they manage you </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Do your job without bothering them </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Keep them informed before not after </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Tell them when they are doing a great job </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Ask for the benefit of their experience </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Remember the names of their children </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Invite them out for a drink or lunch </li></ul></ul>RULE NUMBER ONE FOR CREATIVITY IS TO THINK
  22. 23. <ul><li>We must emphasize taking someone out to lunch is the most powerful business tool you can use to your advantage. People naturally bond over lunch. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Starters – small talk “How’s your cat?” (Better yet, “How’s Tabby?” Its plus points to remember names of pets, children, and significant others) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Main course – context setting “Have you noticed the sales dive in apricots?” </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Dessert – problem solving “Perhaps we could repackage them” </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Coffee – next actions “I’ll give you some research budget and we’ll look into it” </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Paying – gratitude expression “This one’s on me. You’ve really helped me out” </li></ul></ul>LET’S DO LUNCH!
  23. 24. <ul><ul><li>Taxi – get one for her if you are a gentleman, whether you are a client, boss, or subordinate, it doesn’t matter. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Don’t ride in the same cab unless you’re going to the same place, and if you are -don’t snuggle! </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>This is strictly a business lunch, not a romantic dinner! Know what’s appropriate. </li></ul></ul></ul>LET’S DO LUNCH!
  24. 25. <ul><ul><li>Communication and point leadership/leadership from the Front </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Passionately believe in your vision. Enthusiasm is contagious. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Build a team that shares your vision. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Tell your team exactly what you expect of it </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Tell it like it is </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Listen before you speak </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Headlines first, then the whole story </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Consistency is the clearest message </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>If it really matters, do it face to face </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Encourage feedback and act on it </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Involvement is the best persuader </li></ul></ul>LEADING TEAMS
  25. 26. <ul><ul><li>Involvement is the best persuader </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Little and often is better than long and loud </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Communication works when something changes </li></ul></ul><ul><li>The best basis for leadership is mutually understood expectations. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>When people are absolutely clear on where they’re going and what role they play in the journey, leadership becomes a matter of a light hand on the tiller rather than continual wrenching efforts to keep everyone on track. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>How to be a good point leader: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Respect team member’s input and skills </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Keep everyone informed and motivated </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Work harder than everyone else </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Very occasionally be ruthless and get rid of the person who refuses to change </li></ul></ul>LEADING TEAMS
  26. 27. <ul><ul><li>Incentives and saying thank you play a big part in motivating people </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Share the rewards/profit </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Give training and space to grow </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Old economy networking </li></ul><ul><ul><li>When the guy gives you his card within 30 seconds of meeting you. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>New economy networking </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Think about what you have to offer, and not what you can get from each person in the room. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>You see, the problem with the old economy types at a party is they ignore people who are of no use to them in business. Have you noticed? </li></ul></ul>LEADING TEAMS
  27. 28. <ul><li>First make clear which type of meeting you’re having: a selling or presentation meeting, an information-sharing one, a problem-solving one (translation: this will take a while) and the socialization / food meeting or in other words: office party. </li></ul><ul><li>The more people you have in a meeting the less likely it will achieve anything. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>To get the right people in the meeting, announce what it’s all about so you don’t have totally useless people sitting around wasting time. </li></ul></ul>THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS AN INTERESTING MEETING

They’re meaningless. </li></ul>COMMUNICATION
