According to IBM: From 2008 to 2012, the importance of business model innovation in outperformer (companies) increased by 19 percent; in contrast, underperformers reported a 13 percent decrease in business model innovation importance. And that trend continues. Additionally, IBM found that the ability to embody creative leadership as among the most important attributes! This is the culture we all work within. You just can’t get away from it!

Yet, this strategic initiative is taxing today’s workforce. And you better than anyone knows how taxing work is today! Today’s corporate workforce is squeezed smack dab in the middle of the battleground between more production and more innovation. No other generation has experienced work pressures of this magnitude.

Here’s what’s going on. My clients are telling me: “I’ve never worked so hard in my life.” “I can’t find the time to do anything more. I’m stretched to the limit just handling my job.” or “I’m puzzled. I think I’m strategic and innovative, but my boss doesn’t.” Can you relate?

As a Business Strategist/Thought Leader, I couldn’t allow this time sensitive workplace issue to go unaddressed any longer. I had to find answers for my clients, so I went to the drawing board searching for real solutions for this very real world quandary.

The result: I’ve developed powerful tips and specific action steps that will reduce an employee’s stress in the workplace while increasing his or her time to be the innovative leader your company needs—and you hope to be. I am excited to share these new innovative breakthrough strategies with your organization. And by the way, they’re amazingly practical, easy to implement and guaranteed to enhance an employee’s work life.

What executives who have attended The Mindful Innovator have said about the program:

As executives left the inaugural program, one said: Wow! This was good. Everyone in the organization should take this program.

A client recommended I attend Nancy Fredericks International’s inaugural program, The Mindful Innovator. Am I glad I did!  The Mindful Innovator is original, relevant, and practical.  I left the workshop with a lot of new ideas and a commitment to become more innovative in the new year.  I highly recommend this program to executives and high potentials who are committed to growing their career.  Pam Hedges, Hedges & Associates

I was excited after attending The Mindful Innovator program because I walked away with so many gems. I couldn’t wait to make it happen. The biggest new thought was how to help my manager see me as a high level executive. Then, I still had a one-on-one coaching session with Nancy where I could specifically address my concerns in-depth. Sharon Rittenhouse, Senior Manager

I loved your eBook!  The primary “both/and” message is dead on, and it almost felt like you wrote this book directly for me as I read it. The book explains what it means to be a “Mindful Innovator” in very succinct terms, follows with very pragmatic advice about how to make such a transformation, and then challenges the reader to act!  All this in 30 pages that I had time to read on an airplane. Great job!  This is high quality work.  IT Manager

I read the eBook and liked it very much!  I especially found value in the progressive nature of your writing – what the issue is, why it’s important, how to identify companies and employees that do and don’t have the both/and mindset.  I particularly found importance in the “case studies” and “next steps” you outlined (how to take this information, use it and act on it). Another note – I thought the worksheet at the end was very good. Forced me to act on what I just read, and now I can post it to review weekly. Thanks. Senior Director
