Innovation Behaviors

Behavior governs our day and how we approach our opportunities and challenges. Because of this, we’ve identified eight behaviors that help stimulate innovation, nurture creativity, and create connections.

To help you cultivate your own Innovation Behaviors, we’ve paired them up with animal counterparts to make them easy to remember.

Greenhousing

Greenhousing is all about protecting and nurturing young ideas.

Signaling

Signaling is about telling others what you need to drive innovation in the right direction.

Bravery

Bravery lays the foundation for all of the other behaviors and can come in many forms.

Curiosity

Curiosity is about questioning, being inquisitive, and challenging assumptions.

Momentum

To keep an idea moving, we must create, manage, and maintain unrelenting energy around it. That’s momentum.

Realness

Realness is about bringing your ideas to life to communicate clearly and gain buy-in.

Freshness

Freshness is about exposing yourself to fresh perspectives, thinking, and experiences to stimulate your mind.

Playfulness

Playfulness isn’t just for fun — in fact, there’s science behind silliness!
