So let’s dissect, talk myths, and then talk action.

- Innovation exists in the right environment: we need to create the space, time and freedom to explore that.
- Most organisations dangle the carrot, but they stop people getting it.
- Experiment and engage in your pursuits to overcome the barriers.
- Organisations need to match the right people with the right environment – and that’s a two-way process.
- The challenge for diversity is finding the right proxities, without making it tokenist.
- The key to a successful and high performing team is balance.
- Selfless leadership: the best leaders are creating leaders, who are creating leaders.
