Guess what. I made my way out of the data jungle and aggregated first insights about “successful leadership in the field of innovation” for you. Enjoy reading my descriptive report. 102 innovation practitioners shared exciting insights. I hope you can take something out of it! Questions or feedback are always welcome. More will follow soon.

Why should we act?
2014: 2.325 millionaires. Oxfam says the richest % of people will own more than 50% of capital in near future.
What goes wrong?
Moral, ethical and functional dimensions of capitalism criticism. (https://www.philosophie.hu-berlin.de/de/lehrbereiche/jaeggi/mitarbeiter/jaeggi_rahel)
What are the alternatives?
A fair distribution => finding a symmetry between work, production means and capital employed. One option is to become an economic democracy, changing power structures. (see f.e. Karl Marx, G. A. Cohen, David Schweikert, Titus Stahl, Philippe Van Parijs)
Do not measure your life at hierarchy level or status. Think about “How did you help others to become better!”. Life is about building long term relationships instead of focusing on short-term profits.

– Csíkszentmihályi 2003 –
Pioneering research states that innovators can make connections between seemingly unconnected things. They naturally question, network, observe and experiment. They do not fit within the established setting; they look at the world in new ways.
