Tamara Ghandour, author, podcaster, keynote speaker and founder of innovation training company, LaunchStreet, used to believe that innovation was the domain of a select few, exclusive to certain industries, or relegated to a specific job role. But, as Tamara discovered in her 25 years of work and research, everybody has the capacity to innovate. It's a person's unique innovation style, (which can be assessed and channelled), that can transform inertia into innovation.

Drawing on eye-opening data from her proprietary Innovation Quotient Edge Assessment, Innovation is Everybody's Business is for those looking for solutions to the daily pain of "how do I prove my worth," a reality for many people whether they work in the C-Suite or on the front-lines. This book will resonate with those that recognize that being more innovative is their ticket to beingindispensable.It is also for leaders under pressure to build a culture of innovation but don't know how. As organizations face pressure to innovate, the accountability for making it happen falls on senior and mid-level leaders. They are told what to do, but not how to do it. This book will give them a tool to build a team of innovators who make an impact every day in big and small ways.
