An episode of The Remarkable Leadership Podcast with Kevin Eikenberry. Episode title is Thinking Outside the Building with Rosabeth Moss Kanter.

The happiest people are tackling big problems, not just complaining about them. Rosabeth Moss Kanter’s goal is to give folks the skills to move to action, whether personally or professionally. Rosabeth is the author or co-author of 20 books, including her most recent Think Outside the Building: How Advanced Leaders Can Change the World One Smart Innovation at a Time. Rosabeth and Kevin discuss change and innovation and she shares examples of folks moving ideas forward. The size of your idea does not need to be tied to the size of your bank account. Some big ideas grow with many small asks. She cautions that moving ideas are messy and those small asks help build your community. Not only does this community keep you going, but they can also offer perspective. Don’t be afraid to propose a new solution. Sometimes nothing happens. Sometimes that idea can grow and if you don’t act you will never know.

In this episode, Rosabeth discusses 1. What is “Outside the Building”. 2. Small asks. 3. Kanter’s Law (Roadblocks in the middle).
