Innovation Tip: Make a New Connection

One common characteristic of exceptional innovators is that they constantly reach outside their immediate circles to make new connections with interesting people. Fortunately, this is easier to do today than it ever has been before.

Think of an author who inspires you, or a business leader from another firm who you think might share some interesting insights with you. Look that person up (try LinkedIn if you’re having a hard time) and send them an email. People are usually more than happy to share some of their experiences and insights with you, and, like you, are often looking to connect with new people.

Make a habit of reaching out to people, and you’ll soon find yourself with a network of innovative friends through which you can toss around new ideas and broaden your perspective.
