Episode 32: Solving the Innovation Mystery with Steve Gladis

“If you get to use your strengths in a day-to-day basis, you tend to grow, feel good about yourself and expand”

Just a few of the points you’ll learn in this episode:

  • Why businesses can make a lot more money in 4-5 hours by rethinking their process
  • Why innovation can be small or really large (earth shattering or incremental changes)
  • Which organizational methods you should pay attention to
  • How to identify what really motivates you to get what you want

“Get people to work on stuff they like to work on and figure out a way to craft the job to fit them, not the other way around”



  • Why 6 months to a year of proper teamwork training can increase your bottom line dramatically
  • What talent consists of and how the environment you create greatly affects it
  • What is I=TEP? (Innovation = Talent + Environment + Process)
  • How groups view a problem with the same cultural and intellectual background and why they get stumped at the same place


  • Why creativity is not innovation
  • The Five P’s (problem, present state, possible future state, pivot)
  • The importance of sticking to your strengths and the dangers of getting stuck with your weaknesses
  • Why a “growth mindset” is better than a “fixed mindset” (knowledge vs results)
  • Quote

“This isn’t voodoo, there’s science here. People have done this and have been successful”
