Your boss has given you the task of coming up with the next profitable idea.
So, where and how do you begin?
Finding unique ideas is valuable in the age of information overload, and coming up with something different isn’t as hard as you think. Great ideas not only exist, but they are also all around you.
Start by conditioning your mind. Think you are a creative individual and that you can come up with great ideas. Continue to reorient the way you think, so you can adopt an attitude that attracts success.
Next, look at what has already been done, and dust off some of those old ideas you have. Study them, ask questions and consider combining some ideas into something new.
Finally, use getAbstract to help uncover the knowledge you need to create new ideas. Discover new insights and learn the latest trends from our library of business book summaries. Our compressed knowledge will help you think differently and create new ideas.

“Tribes in companies get work done –sometimes a lot of work–but they don’t form because of work. Tribes are the basic building block of any large human effort.”– Tribal Leadership: Leveraging Natural Group to Build a Thriving Organization by Dave Logan, John King and Halee Fischer-Wright
Do you agree?
Organizations that have between 20 or 15o people tend to form internal tribes, and when these tribes are formed leaders have an opportunity to mold the group so they not only work well together, but they also play well together. The authors of Tribal Leadership conducted extensive research on corporate tribes. They uncovered a five-stage evolution process that occurs within organizations. The process begins with the lowest stage, “A Dog Eat Dog World,” where tribe members feel the odds are stacked against them and the environment is hostile. The evolution progresses to the final stage, “Magic,” at which the group is highly evolved, and its members don’t feel the need to compete.
This evening, Dave Logan will host getAbstract’s invitation-only author dinner in Toronto, Ontario to encourage insightful discussions with executives about how they can develop the right tribal strategy. Find out more. Read the summary here:
