If you think that all good ideas come from the C-suite, think again. Gail Levy, CEO of hydrogen-rich water company HFactor, said that putting up “walls,” and only listening to the executive team for inspiration will actually hurt innovation more than it helps.
“Sometimes the best ideas come from team members who aren’t packing the pedigreed credentials or working in the C-suites,” Levy told Business News Daily. “The companies that have risen above others challenge their staff to be innovative in an all-inclusive community. Executives must constantly collaborate with staff at all levels and make each person feel no idea is bad or too far-fetched.”
