Not everyone has the same strengths – if we did, that would be a bit boring. Realizing how people approach innovation and their strengths is something Tamara Kleinberg accomplishes. She created a tool, the Innovation Quotient Edge; for identifying your innovation strength.

Tamara is known for her ability to innovate from ideation to implementation and has brought to market products for very large brands. For the past 18 years, she has advised companies such as Disney, Procter & Gamble, General Mills and Otterbox on fostering innovative ideas and people.

From the discussion with Tamara, she shared nine traits of innovators and how to identify the trait(s) that is your strength. The traits are:

  1. Collaborative
  2. Experiential
  3. Futuristic
  4. Fluid
  5. Imaginative
  6. Inquisitive
  7. Instinctual
  8. Risk Taker
  9. Tweaker
