Does Your Business Foster Innovation?

One of the hallmarks of a successful small business is the ability to innovate. Last week, the Inc.com blog offered 7 steps to make your business one that rewards innovation. The steps are:

  1. Fuel passion
  2. Celebrate ideas
  3. Foster autonomy
  4. Encourage courage
  5. Fail forward
  6. Think small
  7. Maximize diversity

Some of these are harder than others. You might have a hard time fostering autonomy, or you might struggle with turning defeat and loss into a positive thing. That said, each of these steps will help not only your employees, but you yourself, to truly forge ahead and make your mark on your industry.
