Regardless, there are valuable lessons to be learned from it, according to Lisa Bodell, CEO of the business consulting firm FutureThink and the NGCOA's General Session keynote at its recent Annual Conference in New Orleans.
"What's great about that anecdote is that it illustrates how we have such a hard time changing our course even when what's in front of us is so unclear. We have such a hard time admitting that maybe we are the one who needs to change," said Bodell, a self-proclaimed 'futurist' who advises companies and groups on how to innovate and think differently about change.
"The issue with change is that people see it as something that's all or nothing - it's binary, it's yes or it's no, it's good or it's bad, it's all or it's nothing. And it's not," she said. "In fact, there's a lot of gray area with change and I think that's an opportunity because it means you don't have to take a big risk in order to have a lot of success."
During her presentation, Bodell introduced attendees to a tool that futurists call "40 ways to rethink your business.

Lisa Bodell is the founder and CEO of futurethink, an award-winning innovation research and training firm that helps businesses embrace change and become world-class innovators. Bodell founded futurethink on the premise that everyone has the power to innovate-they just need the knowledge and tools to know how. She has spent years working with hundreds of leading innovators to create the largest catalog of innovation research and tools in the world, and the most in-depth training curricula on innovation anywhere. The company's cutting-edge courses were featured as the winner of the 2011 Chief Learning Officer Gold Award for Excellence in Content.
Bodell is globally recognized as a leader and pioneer in the field of futuring and innovation-bringing clarity to an otherwise complicated topic. She created the widely-adopted SIPC Innovation Framework (STRATEGY, IDEAS, PROCESS, CLIMATE), which has helped innovators around the world easily embrace innovation by providing a clear method that breaks innovation down into manageable parts.
Lisa Bodell is a seasoned futurist, teacher, and entrepreneur who has built three successful businesses. She began her career at Leo Burnett in Chicago, where she developed an appetite for marrying strategically driven ideas with forward-thinking themes. She went on to start her own strategic planning firm, Strategic InSites, and the marketing and branding firm, Harvest Partners, before focusing solely on the innovation space with futurethink, her latest venture.

There's even a quick quiz to help participants can gauge how innovative they are, along with suggestions on how to improve their I.Q. (Innovation Quotient) over time.
