I definitely made my share of bad hires in the early days as a business owner: The salesperson who never made a sale. The admin who stole our software for her sideline business. The marketing rep who continually fell asleep at her desk and did her personal errands while out of the office on “company business.”

As business owners and leaders, we touch hundreds of lives. It is a tremendous privilege and awesome responsibility. We know the risks of creating and molding something. In spite of our success, we live each day in some amount of dread or fear that what we envision might fail.

Startup entrepreneurs and scientists are generally painted with very different brushes in popular culture, and in turn, in people’s imaginations. While startup entrepreneurs are generally depicted as young, forward thinking, movers and shakers playing ping pong and using macbooks in hammocks in open plan Silicon Valley palaces, scientists are generally thought of as older, lab coated, eccentric Einstein lookalikes playing with potions in laboratories.

As most parents have learned, late-night conversation around the campfire can open communication lines. Consider those romantic strolls with your first love when you shared your deepest secrets and highest hopes for the future? Or how about those laps around the gym or through the hallways at school with your best friend, sharing what happened on the weekend?

Likewise, leaders have learned that walking loosens the tongue of their team members. Walking and talking go together like leadership and strategy.  How so?

Every business leader wants to bring transformative and world changing innovation to their customers.  They want to bring new and novel value to the world, and in doing so reap the vast rewards that come with being a trailblazing innovator.  They often have multiple ideas and plans in front of them that show promise or sound good on paper, but they don’t know which ones to support and which ones to pass on.  CEOs need a consistent and systematic approach to determine which ideas to pursue.  In other words, they need a currency to effectively invest in innovation.
