If a fire breaks out in your office, everyone will either exit or pitch in to battle the flames. When the fire is out, you won’t have a better company. The problem is solved, but you are left with a mess to clean up, followed by a return to the same routine as before the emergency.

When your only tool is a hammer, everything begins to look like a nail. If your primary thought process is problem solving, everything begins to look like—you guessed it—a problem. Solving problems is essential. But growing your business requires innovation, along with the communication skills to put your team and your customers on the same page.  

When a crisis appears, your company goes into a solution mode. As your teams struggle to reach quarterly goals or plug financial leaks, they close off countless opportunities for creation, transformation, and annihilation of defunct processes.

I want to introduce you to the Wheel of Changes—64 alternative perspectives you and your teams can apply to clarify and expand perceptions between you and the people you serve.

Elon Musk is the Thomas Edison of our time. His business partners were obviously fans of Nicolai Tesla—a brilliant scientist who worked for Thomas Edison. His team branded the company TESLA. But the achievements of Elon Musk are on par with Edison, who perfected the light bulb, the electric grid, and General Electric—a business to capitalize on his contribution.

Likewise, Musk doesn’t just invent new machines. He creates entirely new systems. His electric cars and trucks work because his teams have installed charging stations in countries throughout the world. He created the machines. Then he built the infrastructure, along with a new financial model to cover the cost of powering his inventions. Recently he built the world’s largest battery to eliminate power outages in Australia.

Plenty of people have tried to break into the transportation industry over the last century. Musk didn’t bother to break in. He leaped over the established order with an entirely new way to power machines.

When Elon Musk presents his newest wonders, you notice right away that he is more brilliant than eloquent. He is thrilled, like a child with new toys that he is eager to share with all his friends.

What is that boyish enthusiasm? Is that level of excitement available for anyone and everyone? Is there a replicable method of inspiring acts of creation that can take society beyond the memorization and regurgitation approach favored by public education?

Steve Jobs also played the game of business with child-like excitement. He demanded toys to fulfill his curiosity. He didn’t personally invent things. Instead he hired tech savvy people to build devices to his exacting standards. His passion created waves of innovation that continue to influence the tech industry to this day.

Some say Jobs was tough to work for. Yet, his enthusiasm was contagious. The innovative products his teams produced attracted more attention worldwide than any film release or concert. People lined up for hours to get their hands on the latest, greatest versions of Apple products. His ability to communicate excitement to his customers transformed the business environment forever, making Apple Computer one of the most profitable companies in history.

Your curiosity is different. It is unique to you and to the people you have attracted to play on your teams. When you tap the curiosity in your organization, you will achieve innovations that are beyond your imagination.

To survive and thrive in business today, you must communicate with consumers, predict the future with some degree of accuracy, and produce goods that impact the market now, while developing new markets for years to come.

The traditional economy lies in the domain of legal and financial systems. But advances in technology and service spring from newly forming innovative organizations that produce outstanding value.

Entrepreneurs and business leaders like Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, Larry Page, Mark Zuckerberg, Michael Dell, and Elon Musk dropped out of school to escape conformity. Their curiosity propelled them to create great organizations that are changing the world.

Pioneers don’t throw away the book on traditional business models. They do find new ways to blend brilliant insights that transform proven business practices. You can do that by mastering the art of connection and collaboration in unexplored regions of the global business community.
