Nightmare Competitor

Yesterday I had a cup of coffee with a lovely lady of a Management Centre in Poole. We talked about innovation and leadership programs. And about our children. About the gift of personal development while working or traveling abroad. It was raining outside. We didn't care! I told her about the strength of the Nightmare Competitor to use in an incompany innovation trainings. Cirque du Soleil is an example of a Nightmare Competitor and so is Easy Jet. And how powerful it could be to work with delegates from different company backgrounds and markets in an open innovation training. How often do you have the opportunity to have other eyes looking at your company, your work, your innovation or leadership issues? They will ask question nobody ever asked you before. Room to grow. You will have different perspectives for shore after a training like that! After a hour we went into the rain. I didn't care! I loved talking about my profession again. My work: I miss you!
