What’s your Innovativeness Index?

“Innovator Mindset® is a uniquely powerful way to measure and enhance your capacity to create new value. This rigorous research-based instrument assesses your values, assumptions and behaviors to gauge how well you are tapping into your personal capacity to innovate. It also provides detailed guidance on how you can improve your performance – to increase the value you produce, in any context or endeavor.”

The Innovator Mindset Assessment tool was created by Dennis Stauffer after extensive research in the Innovation space. The Assessment tool helps you gain an understanding of where you are as an innovator and then provides you the tools through mini online modules to grow you innovation capacity.

Join the us for Innovator Mindset Masterminds. Mindset Masterminds are limited term cohorts of small business owners who will journey together through in the Innovation Mindset assessment and process. This a great opportunity offered at no charge to participants. Funded by the Office of Women Owned Small Business through the WBC EmPWR grant at the Northeast Indiana Innovation Center.

IM is Different

There are many online assessments that measure your innate personality, type, style or strengths…things about you that researchers believe are stable and unchanging.

The Innovator Mindset® instrument is different. It does much more than put you into categories. It tells you how well you are doing at being innovative, how much of your innovation potential you are fulfilling. That’s something you can control and choose to change, and IM shows you how.

What is so powerful about this approach is that you can use that feedback to improve your innovativeness, to enhance your capacity to create new value.
