Humans need humans: Influencing skills in the age of automation | Go beyond disruption

3 years ago · 22 min listen

"Creative accounting might be frowned upon but creative thinking - innovation - is not. Creativity is a muscle in the brain and requires exercise".

Your December podcasts are inspired by our "Human Intelligence"-themed work around the world. This episode features Heather Wright, an international facilitator 20 years into a mission to learn as much as she can about the psychology of influence over our own thinking as well as with those around us.

She tells AICPA & CIMA's Samantha Louis, VP for International Advocacy, how we can use it to everyone’s advantage, to convert it to usable, teachable material that changes the lives of others.

Our guest:

Heather is director of Advance Performance, a UK-based company she set up 20 years ago. She is an inspirational speaker and facilitator delivering speeches and workshops to public services and large multinational companies in the UK, Europe, Central America and Australia. A keen sportswoman, she is on a mission to help people understand and use positive behavioural change to transform what we do and how we work - for the better.

We discuss:

  • Starting simply with the routines we already have.

  • Ways to use those routines to achieve better outcomes.

  • Approaches to using technology more appropriately as a 'booster', to direct us rather than distract us.

  • How to exercise our 'creativity and innovation' muscles.

  • The positive power of 'what if'.

  • What teams can do to foster this as an asset inside their organisations.
