INNOVATIVE FUNDAMENTALS FOR ENGAGING THOSE AROUND YOU I have worked in the job force since I was 14 years old. I understand what it's like to work for a company where I did not feel as if my input mattered to anyone and I have worked for companies that have asked for, received and implemented where necessary input and suggestions from every employee. That meant we knew, no matter the chain of command, from upper management to ground level support staff, we all knew our input was welcome and acted upon if need be. Do you want your company to be one that shows that it values the opinions of every employee? After reading the Bright Idea Box, I came to the conclusion that despite the product or service a company offers, no one part should be greater than the sum of all their parts, as a company is not successful unless they engage every level employee on some level. I highly recommend this book, whether you run a company or not as it gives you great tips on how to engage those around you.**I received this product at no charge in exchange for my honest review**

Great Business Book I received this book to help facilitate this review. All opinions are mine and was in no way influenced by outside sources. I am a professional blogger at Little Lady Plays.When I started blogging, I did it for fun. I wanted a place to share both my love of photography and education and I found it in the blogosphere. What I did not know, was how it turned out to be something bigger. My education blog has grown and now I deal with more than just me. I work with companies on a daily basis and as well as other bloggers through guest posting and collaborating.What I needed was a way to learn the business side of life in a fun easy to read book. The Bright Idea Box is a great start. Instead of being all about business and number, this book take a different approach. The book is all about the environment and helping make it a happy place. It starts off with some really important questions to help the owner/manager figure out both the strengths and weaknesses.Through some activities and more questions, the book points out major issues that will help you make a plan to take to your workers and work environment. It is all about creating a work space where everyone is happy and on the same page. In a way this is how I teach my girls. I am all about positive thinking and energy. This book just takes it out of the home and to the office.I know this book was written for a work space, but I think everyone working with others can really benefit from this book. It has great advice and ideas that can be used to make a great work environment.

I love the suggestion box idea for sure. I would send out newsletter to encourage each employee to fill one out a month. The incentive would be a gift card to starbucks or one of their choice.It was fun to learn about companies that are changing things in their employee engagement by real examples like Toyota and Starbucks. Where I work, if we have one employee always down and out or complaining it brings everyone down, so I would make that a priority if I wer managment.

Great Read I found this book to be very intriguing. Looking at it from an investor's point of view, it has shaped how I analyze the inner workings of a company's corporate culture and the types of questions I would ask to ascertain if a young company has the potential to make it to the next level (and next level after that). A very good read.

This is a very practical book with a lot of great suggestions for improving a companies culture and driving towards continuous improvement. Many books on innovation expend a lot of verbiage on the "why" but don't tell you enough about how to do it. Jag summarizes the motivation nicely, but the book really shines in the practical suggestions on how to implement an innovation program in one's own company.
