Innovation and growth starts with self discovery, a purpose, and a vision. A real leader of growth and innovation has key objectives they want to reach, and they have a workable plan.

An innovation and growth oriented person gets others involved in their plan because they know it can’t be done alone. They have a growth mindset, and they demonstrate courage and the behaviors necessary to support their plan. For example, they take mindful risks on issues that relate to their vision, and they let no one derail them from realizing their plan.

They also coach and develop others, and let go of their need to be “in control.”

Rate yourself on how well you perform in these areas (5 being the best; 1 not all).

What could you change to improve your score?

Innovation distinguishes between a leader and a follower.

This week we’d like to feature Dr. Abe Fischler, a definite leader and innovator!

Abraham S. Fischler is currently President Emeritus at Nova Southeastern University in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. Dr. Fischler graduated from Columbia University, served as Assistant Professor of Science Education at Harvard University, and was the Professor of Education at the University of California, Berkeley, before joining Nova Southeastern University (NSU).

At NSU, Dr. Fischler served as Dean of Graduate Studies, was the Director of the Behavioral Sciences Center, and ultimately became President. He has always been a visionary, an innovator and a risk taker, and he strove to enhance traditional methods of learning.

During his tenure as President, he developed and offered the first doctoral distance education program in the country, a precursor to modern online education programs which is a method of instruction now available at many institutions of all levels.
