EDUCATION 

Oppositioning: One Surprising Strategy for Innovation and Differentiation

What can tiny houses, Spartan races, knuckleball pitchers, armless archers, Snapchat, unibrows, and Minecraft teach us about innovation and differentiation?

We all know that innovation and differentiation are essential for success in our careers and our companies. But developing and implementing truly unique ideas and practices seems very difficult, and most people and organizations fail in their efforts to be more creative and distinctive.

The solution to this problem is surprisingly simple. Once you learn this singular method for finding unconventional ideas, you’ll dramatically improve your ability to stand out and you’ll have an endless supply of original breakthroughs. You’ll go from unconventional to unforgettable to unstoppable.

The Freak Factor: Discovering Uniqueness by Flaunting Weakness

What's your problem? I'm serious. What do you wish you could change about yourself? What is the complaint that you hear the most from those closest to you, your friends, co-workers, and family members? Are you too loud or too quiet, too hyperactive or too sedentary, too organized or too messy? You get the idea.

So, what should you do? Most people think that they should find and fix their weaknesses. Unfortunately, this just leads to frustration and failure. Your weaknesses are actually the best clue to your strengths. Furthermore, building your strengths, not fixing your weaknesses, is your best strategy for success.

This presentation will encourage you to become more of who you are, not to turn you into someone else. It's about becoming more different and more unique, not more average and more mediocre. You will learn how to:

  • Discover your distinctive strengths and weaknesses
  • Frame your unique characteristics in a positive way
  • Find situations that highlight your positive qualities
  • Maximize your self-control
  • Implement permanent procrastination
