Fostering a culture of innovation and creativity: lessons from GoogleEveryone speaking about innovation, but nothing much happening? Innovation can start with a small step, a tiny improvement or a bold move. However, often it’s only the bold moves – and the big advances – that receive recognition.
Hiam Sakakini and Monika Gisler both worked in leadership and development roles at Google for over a decade, and are now co-founders of Think.Change.Grow, a people and culture consultancy agency based in Sydney. They help organisations to shake up the existing status quo to encourage recognition of the less obvious contributions.
The result? A more innovative workforce thanks to a culture that encourages people to pursue new ideas.

It is worth recognising that we all have our own unique mindsets, strengths and limitations when it comes to communicating.
