Turn Coffee into Helicopters

By Deb Shaw
Editor, Suburban Publisher

All problems are opportunities.
The bigger the problem, the bigger the opportunity.
Never miss an opportunity to be fabulous.

What great lines and, coming from the mouth of the infectious Tina Seelig in her talk at Stanford University’s Entrepreneurship Corner, they make eminent sense. This is a very bright woman who heads up Stanford’s Technology Ventures Program and she delivered a speech about The Art of Teaching Entrepreneurship and Innovation. Despite her highfalutin pedigree of advanced degrees and professional accomplishments, she is as down to earth and easy to identify with as you can possibly imagine.

Every newspaper manager should give a listen to her podcast. It’s about 50 minutes long and well worth your time — I guarantee you’ll walk away uplifted and ready for bear. And, you’ll hear how she turned coffee into a helicopter ride over Santiago, Chile. No kidding.

Tina’s presentation is just one part of the most recent e-course sponsored by the SNA Foundation. Innovation at Work: Making New Ideas Succeed is a multi-layered, self paced and free e-course produced by Poynter Institute’s NewsU division that will help you learn the process to unlock the potential that already exists in you and your organization. This course is specifically designed to teach you how to practice Innovation in your workplace and hone the skills needed to accept every problem as an opportunity. The bigger the problem, the bigger the opportunity.

The e-course is free to users thanks to a grant from the John S. and James L. Knight Foundation.
