FREE THE GENIE: How to Spark Innovation During Covid
February 12, 2021 How to Spark Breakthrough Thinking During a Pandemic
Covid-19 hasn’t just disrupted businesses around the world, it has also disrupted their ability to innovate. And one of the biggest reasons WHY can be traced to one simple factor: isolation.
With most people working from home and scrambling to survive, the opportunities for “thought partners” to connect with each other in meaningful ways have radically declined — and along with it opportunities to ideate, problem solve, and think out of the box.
Pre-Covid, this was the main thrust of Idea Champions’ work. We designed and facilitated a wide range of creative thinking sessions for our clients — opportunities for them to unleash their collective brilliance and make significant progress on a specific goal, initiative, or opportunity.
Those days, at least for now, are over. Everything is virtual. Zoomified. And that is precisely why we have reinvented HOW we deliver services to our clients.
Free the Genie, quite simply, is a facilitated online brainstorming session — a way for our clients to get a fresh look at what they do and how they do it — a way to generate the kind of game changing ideas, mindset, and commitment required to make a quantum leap.
Sessions are 60 minutes long, preceded by 15 minutes of pre-work. Maximum number of participants: four. No contracts required. You can sign up for one “jump start” session or a series. $175 per session.

Who Are We?
Idea Champions is a consulting and training company dedicated to awakening and nurturing the spirit of innovation. We help individuals, teams and entire organizations tap into their innate ability to create, develop and implement ideas that make a difference.
Storytelling for the Revolution is Mitch Ditkoff’s newly published book about the power of personal storytelling to elevate the conversation on planet Earth. Provocative. Evocative. And fun. YOU have stories to tell. This book will help you tell them.
“The world is not made of atoms,” wrote the poet, Muriel Rukeyser. “It’s made of stories.” Learn how to discover, honor, and unpack the stories of yours that show up “on the job” in Mitch Ditkoff’s award-winning 2015 book, Storytelling at Work.
Mitch Ditkoff, the Co-Founder and President of Idea Champions, has recently been voted a top 5 speaker in the field of innovation and creativity by Speakers Platform, a leading speaker’s bureau.
Your “best and brightest” are the future leaders of your company, but unless they know how to foster a culture of innovation, their impact will be limited. A one-day workshop with us is all they need to begin this journey.
Our Heart of Innovation blog is a daily destination for movers and shakers everywhere — gleefully produced by our President, Mitch Ditkoff, voted “best innovation blogger in the world” two years running.
Innovators are known for their ability to move forward. But sometimes, the best way to move forward is to retreat – especially when it’s time to reinvent yourself. That’s why Idea Champions is now offering 5-day immersive retreats in beautiful San Miguel de Allende. Reboot! Refresh! Renew!
Innovation is a team sport. Brilliant ideas go nowhere unless your people are aligned, collaborative, and team-oriented. That doesn’t happen automatically, however. It takes intention, clarity, selflessness, and a new way of operating.
