Innovation 101: Lesson Two
Traits of an Innovator
Everyone talks about the importance of possessing skills that lead to great innovations. But what are these skills exactly? And how are they different from what are commonly called innovator traits, like civic-mindedness, empathy, and risk taker? To answer these questions, we explore the skills and traits of a legendary American innovator, Henry Ford, and compare them to those possessed by the modern-day inventor, Steve Wozniak. We also ask how important innovator skills and traits might play a role in the success of each participant’s life. Written assignments encourage critical thinking and group discussion.
