Overview

Permission is a playful book with serious intent. In a series of light-hearted short sections, integrated with lively graphics, this book guides all who believe in the value of creativity how to give themselves and others permission to go beyond lip-service to actual service. Permission is filled with examples and ideas for giving (and, in turn, getting and taking) permission. It is a simple, clear, and delightful take on the serious subject of innovation, learning and engagement.

It is playful because it opens up more space for people to play with possibilities, play new roles and experience more play in the system(s) in which they work. It is serious because when people have permission to innovate, learn and engage significant business results follow. You will discover new ways to:

- Energize your team
- Generate more ideas
- Improve employee engagement
- Have more fun at work
- Create space for acceptance and inclusion

Most individuals and organizations espouse wonderful ideals. They advocate for innovation, questioning old assumptions, change, flexibility, responsiveness, empowerment, engagement and leadership. Making these ideals a reality is something else entirely. In author Pamela Meyer's research on innovative organizations and the space people create for innovating, learning and changing she made a new discovery: While people understand the espoused values of innovation, learning and change, those that actually change, innovate and learn each day do so because they get, take, and most important-give permission.

The permission-giver is one of the most important roles anyone can play to encourage innovative thinking, significant learning and engagement at work.

Read this book to learn how you and your friends, colleagues and collaborators can generate more ideas, be more of yourself, and have more fun at work!
