Perennial Wisdom of the Conscious Innovator®

30 "Jolts" to Stimulate your Mindset, Process and Culture for Human Centered Innovation

We're on a mission to inspire and guide every person to be a "conscious innovator®" and you're invited to join our process!

On this journey, you'll be traveling through 30 “Jolts,” each one designed to “rearrange your mind’s molecules” about being innovative. In other words, inspiring you towards a deeper understanding and experience of what it means to be a conscious innovator in your everyday life and work.

There are many ways you can engage with this process. You may want to work through the Jolts one-by-one. Or you may want to look through the table of contents and select a Jolt that is most relevant to your life and work right now. Don’t hesitate to engage in a Jolt multiple times as each one is designed to expand your conscious awareness, no matter where you are at this moment.

So, please sign up for FREE and join us!

Frequently Asked Questions

How does the process work?
There's 30 Jolts in total; 10 Jolts for the Mindset of Innovation; 10 Jolts for the Process of Innovation; and 10 Jolts for the Culture for Innovation.

Being a conscious innovator® has a 3-phase cyclical process: being aware, capable, and versatile. After reading each Jolt, take time to “live with” it during your everyday life and work activities. Then add your insights and feedback into the comment box. You can join the process at any time and you can add your feedback as often as you would like. While you're in each Jolt, be sure to review and learn from the feedback of others!

To thank you for your participation, you'll receive a free eBook, which is available at the end of the process.
How long do I have access to the Jolts and feedback?
After signing up for the process, you have unlimited access for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own.
What do you mean by "Jolt"?
A Jolt is something designed to "rearrange your molecules" as it evokes your unique, innovative potential in life and work. Jolts wake us up. They spur new awareness, new capabilities and values, and new actions. Paradoxically, we don't learn from each Jolt - rather, each Jolt "learns us"! That is, a Jolt sits in the background of our consciousness and then prompts new insights and energy over time. (We first learned about the concept of a "Jolt" from Thiagi, who uses it in his well-known game design process.)
