One of our traditions on The Stories of Creative Leadership Podcast is to invite our guests to offer a pithy quote about each of the Seven C’s of Creative Leadership. In the season one finale, Google’s Ivy Ross served up a bunch of wisdom and inspiration in her lightening round. Enjoy!
Communication: “The glue that holds ideas together.”
Curiosity: “Asking the “What if?” question or, “But why?” and “How did things work?”
Creativity: “Seeing things beyond what they appear to be and being free to make new connections.”
Connecting: “I think that’s how the brain makes new ideas, so it is imperative.”
Culture: “Be immersed in it and be the observer of it at the same time.”
Change: “Or die. I think the only thing guaranteed is that things will never stay the same. There used to be an invention every ten years, now it’s every ten seconds.”
Courage: “Nothing new will ever come about if you don’t have it.”
Listen to the entire conversation with Ivy.
