CEOs and Innovation

Those of us who have worked in large Corporations are rather skeptical of CEOs who claim to support Creativity and Innovation.
We have experienced time and again the lip service paid to *facilitating a creative environment*
Why is this the case?
Is it because most CEOs are under pressure to produce short-term results? Or are CEOs too far away from the trenches? Are some of them too old to have learned about Innovation during their MBA days? Are CEOs simply risk-averse?
The new media began when Radio broadcasts were more widely available in the 1920’s, with president Hoover calling it an Instrument of Learning and Beauty.
Then in the early 40’s we saw the growth of Television broadcasts in the USA, and eventually the 1990's made the worldwide web, the Internet, available to the public - and the new Information Age took off.
Radio has recently seen a revival, with increasing numbers of people listening to programs on the internet. In fact recent surveys report that one in three people now listen to the radio via the internet.
The internet, of course, is also a great resource for Education and Training. The number of students doing on-line degrees has risen, and nearly 4 million students have taken at least one on-line course.
Whole Mind Success is also offering some of its methods on-line. We will be helping to develop a Creativity curriculum as part of a new Global Learning website.
We expect that this will provide the opportunity for many more people in our international community to learn practical methods to increase their creativity - and to do so whenever they choose, 24 hours a day throughout the year.
