This story about a granite and gravel company (Luck Stone) pivoting into a values-based leadership and coaching not-for profit business (Inner Will Leadership Institute) as well as spin off a number of related businesses (Luck Companies) is a story about the power of vision. It’s about why connecting with your values matters, and an example of positive turbulence in action. To make things even better, we were able to talk to Dr Tom Epperson, who started working at Luck Stone in college as a summer job and grew with the business through the transition to being the President of Inner Will (as well as the author of InnerWill: Developing Better People, Braver Leaders, and a Wiser World through the Practice of Values-Based Leadership) and Greg McCann a consultant, coach, presenter, author and professor and on the board of Inner Will. Don’t miss it.

This is a positive take on what happens when you apply big idea thinking and practical problem solving to solutions that work in these small-town contexts.

The problem with innovation is that it’s handled like a business with masculine energy. It is very fact-based, data-based KPIs performance, speed, or so says Fabienne Jacquet, author of Venus Genius: The Female Prescription for Innovation and Principal at Innoveve. Fabienne offers a solution and a whole lot of positive turbulence by making an important link to the power of feminine traits and how these are key to the front-end of innovation. She’s pointing at something that everyone sees, but no one is talking about.
