The Innovation Gap™

According to social scientists, people are not built for change and there is a difference between what we plan and what is possible – The Innovation Gap™. Top companies like Amazon, Apple and Facebook already figured this out, yet they still experience incredible growth. In this keynote, speaker Sterling Hawkins steps into this gap and works with his audience to discover what these organizations have already uncovered. This is where Sterling and his keynote works magic to take advantage of a growth potential your organization haven’t even discovered yet.

  • Develop a perspective which seeks what’s possible – rather than what’s not
  • Embrace change and create a world where transformational performance is possible
  • Gain insight on how leaders in an organization are the main driving force of the innovation process
  • Learn how to develop innovation thinking and take profits to the next level

The Illusion of The Impossible™

Results are always determined by action or non-action. In this talk, speaker Sterling Hawkins reveals The Illusion of The Impossible™, opening up new possibilities for all the partakers. The impossible is an illusion and it can disappear. It was impossible to fly before the Wright Brothers. It was impossible to go to the moon with the computer processing power of a desk calculator before JFK. The same limiting “impossibilities” can occur within our businesses. 

  • Learn to distinguish innovative thought patterns, ideas and possibilities in your organization
  • Unleash your organization’s potential by developing access to impacting your organizational culture
  • Lift the veil of the impossible and get access to the solutions that will make the biggest difference.

How Leaders Innovate

The only constant is change – as Sterling highlighted as a TEDx talk. His background of working with hundreds of startups and Fortune 500 companies has led to the discovery that money has little to do with innovation, who you know or even with being in the right place at the right time. It’s all about discomfort. 

  • Intentionally creating discomfort in the current workplace leads to innovative thinking
  • Hardships and problems are not conditions to be rid of but circumstances to be embraced, fostering innovation
  • An ecology of people who create big goals allows and even forces actions that were previously unimaginable
