Three things

I registered to attend a TEDxSingapore event last week.

The form wanted three things people should talk to me about on my name tag. These would be the three things that matter most to me.

  1. Design Thinking
  2. Business Innovation
  3. Empowerment

That was a good moment of clarity. These are the things I am most passionate about. I know “Design Thinking” and “Business Innovation” are in the description of my blog, and many other things I have written about. But it was still a moment of stark clarity to write these things down.

  • Design Thinking – because creative problem solving is the most powerful (fun and engaging) tool we all have within to change our lives for the better or worse.
  • Business Innovation – because business is the most powerful world-shaping force today, and we owe it to ourselves and the generations that come after us to create more humane, more ethical and 360° sustainable businesses. Innovation requires creativity which in turn demands a respectful, purposeful and meaningful business culture. How about that for a win-win!
  • Empowerment – because I love supporting, encouraging, enabling people to do what they are here to do, and be who they want to be. I do it by helping businesses innovate, work better, create meaningful work, strive for excellence, develop great products and wonderful services… I do it by sharing my thoughts, experience and ideas through my writing and speaking.

2010 is shaping up to be a year of clarity and affirmation for me.
