Start this exclusive online course today: Genius is a Team Sport, by NYT Bestseller and Keynote speaker, Tim Sanders. Tim Sanders is the former Chief Solutions Officer at Yahoo, best-selling author, one of the top-rated keynote speakers on the lecture circuit. 

Tim’s keynote presentation for EQ Leadership Labs 2019, has been crafted into this special online course, Genius is a Team Sport. Exclusive to EQ, this course is designed to help startup founders who are struggling with growth and innovation, and managers in larger businesses who need to come up with new products or services, but don’t know how to get started.



Introducing Tim Sanders

Tim Sanders is a former Chief Solutions Officer at Yahoo, best-selling author, one of the top-rated keynote speakers on the lecture circuit, and something of a personal hero for EQ founder, Jonathan Allen. We were delighted to have him deliver the following keynote talk, โ€œGenius is a Team Sport,โ€ at EQ Leadership Labs in 2019.



In his talk, Sanders debunks the idea of having a genius in your startup as a key to ensuring you innovate and grow fast. You don’t need to find and recruit the next Steve Jobs, and if you did find them, they’d probably be doing their own startup anyway.

No, the answer is not hunting around for one in a million โ€˜geniusโ€™ employees. The answer, as Sanders covers in detail, is rapid problem solving.

If you want to innovate, then you need to understand how to solve numerous problems as quickly as possible. Being prolific is the most effective way to innovate, which starts with rapid problem solving and collaboration.

In this talk, Sanders looks at real-world examples, including the creation of Toy Story, and how startups can implement rapid problem solving and collaboration.

In this course, Sanders debunks the idea of having a genius in your startup as a key to ensuring you innovate and grow fast. You don’t need to find and recruit the next Steve Jobs, and there is no silver bullet to every problem you are having. No, the answer is not hunting around for one in a million โ€˜geniusโ€™ employees, or a โ€˜geniusโ€™ answer to challenges. 

The answer, as Sanders covers in detail, is rapid problem solving. 

Alongside rapid problem solving, collaboration is crucial. 

You canโ€™t innovate,  you canโ€™t create new products and services, or overcome challenges, if everyone is working in a silo, ignoring things that don’t directly concern them, or the big picture vision of the company. 

Everyone needs to be on the same page, working together, and this course will give you the practical steps to make that happen.

Who needs to dive into Genius is a Team Sport?
