Q6: How can companies foster a culture of reimagination in order to help them grow and succeed?
Britta Meyer
A6: New is the new new. A relentless look at the existing with an intent to change and improve is essential for reimagination.
Lindsay Malloy
Be open to new ideas, silly ideas, bad ideas, great ideas, all ideas...
Britta Meyer
A6: Also, being fearless: When you ask for input, you shall receive it, and you won’t always like it. But don’t be scared – it will be worth it.
Nick Blunden
A6: @IBMSocialBiz Empower everybody within the organisation to continually ask the question why. To reimagine you can't assume you have to understand and to understand you have to ask why.
Todd Turbo Watson
Encourage and foster "ownership" throughout the organization, while giving all employees the best tools to participate, contribute, and ultimately, innovate.
Lindsay Malloy
Welcome change with a good attitude!
Miranda Gray
Ban large team update meetings and hold story telling coffeehouses instead.
Bob Pulver
A6: encourage risk-taking, treat failure as part of learning and growing
Amanda Tenedini
Less meetings and more problem/solution brainstorms. Time for collaboration and dreaming is key to growth. We all get too caught up in surviving each day instead of finding ways to make each day better.
Ed Brill
I call it a "culture of participation" - it's about both the benefits to the company (innovation, speed, growth, efficiency) and also to the individual (career, personal satisfaction, job flow)
Sean House
high profile endorsement from senior execs. Hiring (and firing) to reinforce the desired behaviour
HireQ
Raise the bar with each success and accomplishment. Continuously challenge the processes and the thinking.
Lindsay Malloy
@mirgray I always loved meeting my teammates in new places! Nothing sparks new ideas like a new environment.
Miranda Gray
Tell stories about risk taking including failures that were worth it.
Cayce Duda
Most of the time we do not have the best idea . But still say it! Embrace that, learn from it, and figure out which shy person in the room has the best idea. It might be you this time.
Social Biz Concepts
A6: Companies can foster a culture by enabling creativity, innovation, and learning in an nurturing environment.
Casey Lucas
A6: @IBMSocialBiz - People have got to be jazzed about it and teamed with like-minded folks to foster a culture of reimagination to grow and succeed!!
Nick Blunden
A6: Embrace uncertainty and encourage curiosity.
Britta Meyer
@AmandaTene i love time for dreaming. imagine that.
Bob Pulver
A6: respond to all submitted ideas; saying 'thanks' or even 'no' is better than silence #respect
HireQ
Give ppl choices on when, where and how they work. Provide the necessary tools to be successful. Then step aside and give them freedom to nurture their creative capabilities.
Miranda Gray
@sean_house Maybe more local level of calling out great story telling?
Maria Huntalas
Accept failures....trial and error sparks great ideas!
Lindsay Malloy
@pulvereyes Great idea! Reminds me of @KareAnderson when she said employees want to make a difference, not just be heard.
Miranda Gray
@CaseyCrl Sometimes if I wonder if we'd get farther if all the jazzed people worked together rather than scattered throughout.
Sean House
@mirgray Absolutely! Stories celebrating failure (or the learning from it) as well as success

Q6: Encouraging #Meritocracy Instead of Building #Bureaucracy

Q7: What is the quality you most admire in a visionary?
Nick Blunden
A7: @IBMSocialBiz Honesty is the most admirable quality of a visionary. Without it a vision is just a dream. With it a vision can become a reality.
Britta Meyer
A7: Conviction. It takes a lot of guts to challenge the world, and a strong belief to change it.
Todd Turbo Watson
One who can clearly articulate their vision and inspire their team to embrace that vision and, in their own unique way, execute against it.
Lindsay Malloy
Imagination! @LisaSeacat definitely inspired me to run with mine!
Miranda Gray
A7. Ability to share the vision and leave me with stories to share on.
Bob Pulver
A7: risk-taking. not easy to go against the grain and be the 'wild duck' with bold, novel ideas
Britta Meyer
A7: And yet, staying humble. Despite all the strength is takes to develop a vision, staying open to alternative thoughts and opinions.
Bilal Jaffery
Honesty and transparency.
Miranda Gray
A7. man all of these are essential for visionaries.
Ed Brill
A7: Clear communication. Vision doesn't matter if it is kept quiet!
Casey Lucas
A7: @nickblunden & @britta_sf - Could not have answered Q7 any better than ya'll did!! Way to go!! @IBMSocialBiz
Cayce Duda
Insight: a visionary to me is that person who says "Yeah, but what if?!"... And then motivates people to follow through. #TEDatIBM
Maria Huntalas
Bravery.....the ability to take risks, try new things.
Brian Fanzo
Transparent honesty with realistic optimism!
Lindsay Malloy
@pulvereyes I agree! Then bravery or courage or even determination to be heard would be a quality that's needed.
Social Biz Concepts
A7: The abilitity to think and create outside of the box. #noboundaries
Alison Fether
@edbrill - agree! Ability to make a complex idea seem simple
Lisa Ng
@RichardBranson is mine. He has been a some I look up to since 14 years old (his book was the first book I read end-to-end and enjoyed.) A lot of my key skills and qualities are from him.
Michelle Cooke
A7 Great Teeth! Kidding...Willingness to learn from mistakes
Sean House
erudition: the ability to make the vision compelling and to communicate it
Pete Marshall
think big, get **** done, fun to work with
Lisa Ng
Envision for the Future
Athar Afzal
Coming up with an idea that can be implemented to the largest group of people - and that applies to all of them.
Athar Afzal
@Britta_SF So true - one must be fully determined on their mission to succeed - as if they live and breath it day & night
Athar Afzal
@PattyDesmarais and simultaneously to sell other on a vision outside THEIR box :) !
HireQ
Their fire. Their intense focus, passion, dedication and drive balanced with mindfulness.
Antonio Galbe
determination and courage to dedicate their lives and hard work to a belief, vision doesn't come suddenly, it arrives while working hard...
