Allen Fahden
Author of Innovation on Demand and The C.A.R.E. Profile

"Different isn't always better. But better is always different."
--Marshall Thurber

An Advancer sold this concept to Recycled, the giant card company, by sending just one fax.


LAUGH


Once the audience laughs at SuckCess (the card series above), they're open to the message.

A big idea needs an Advancer to get it done. Most companies have these people (15% of the population) buried n the wrong work.

That leaves Creators (35%) and Refiners (25%) locked in endless conflict, killing each other's ideas. The result?

Nothing gets done.


KILLER IDEAS, NOT IDEA KILLERS


In his highly entertaining style, Allen Fahden demonstrates the way to have a big idea.

His one-book bookstore got him in People magazine and on network TV. SuckCess has sold as cards, mugs, t-shirts and hats.

Yet, nothing would have happened without the right people moving things forward.


LEAP


Fahden's Warp-Speed Relay Team does for innovation what Henry Ford's assembly line did for production.

Each person does what they do best, then hands off to the next person, tripling what gets done.

Allen Fahden is an original. He:

  • Discovered natural work styles
  • Invented the relay team
  • Created opposites thinking.

Companies using his methods include:

GE
US West
Saturn
3M
Mercedes-BenzVolvo
Executive Team Building
Shangri-La Hotels
Nissan
Eastman Kodak
State Farm Insurance



LAUNCH


"People will do what they're inspired to do."
--Allen Fahden

Your people will take home something they'll install the very next day.


WHAT CLIENTS SAY

"The first thing I do is buy a ball club. The second thing I do is call Al Fahden."
--Mike Veeck, Chicago White Sox owner
with the legendary Bill Veeck, partner with comedian Bill Murray
"I divide my life into two parts. Before I met Fahden and after."
--Phillip Styrlund,
VP, Sales, ADC Telecommunications

    Innovation Network Director Al Fahden created a series "SuckCess"(R) note cards that have a cruel twist on the "sucky motivational posters" gracing many offices these days. Click here to preview the cards and to "Ask Mr. Suck Head" your questions.
