Summary of Hot Spots
Why Some Teams, Workplaces, and Organizations Buzz with Energy - and Others Don't
Take the chill out of the Big Freeze: Ignite the fire of creativity and innovation by sparking Hot Spots in your company.
If you’ve been fortunate enough to experience a workplace that crackles with creative energy and productivity, you know all about “Hot Spots.” College professor Lynda Gratton has spent more than 10 years studying the internal corporate junctures where innovation, excitement and collaboration meet. She found that organizations that create the fertile conditions in which Hot Spots emerge and flourish are rewarded with exceptional value and growth. In fact, she demonstrates that leading companies, such as BP and Nokia, cultivate Hot Spots as an integral part of their corporate cultures. If your company is stuck in the “Big Freeze” – the opposite of Hot Spots – you won’t be able to turn things around overnight. But don’t give Gratton’s slightly overwritten yet intriguing book the cold shoulder. getAbstract thinks it might light a fire at many companies.
In this summary, you will learn
- What “Hot Spots” are;
- How Hot Spots can take your organization to a higher level;
- Why true growth depends on creative energy and cooperation; and
- How to overcome Hot Spot challenges.
