Connect the Dots: Breakthrough Thinking in a Virtual World

By now we’ve all figured out that there’s no going back to the way things were. It’s a new world—and successfully navigating this new world requires innovative thinking. Okay, fine. We’ve heard that before. But how do you actually do it? How do you come up with the innovative ideas to address new challenges? In this program, 29-time Emmy Award winner Bill Stainton shares nuts and bolts techniques that will turn you into an innovative thinker immediately.
