Welcome to the Evolvepreneur (After Hours) Show

I am your Special Host Richard Wray

Join me today where we dig deep with our guests and get you the best concepts and strategies to fast-track your business.

My very special guest today is Paul Daniels ...

Paul Daniels is an international speaker and author who discusses his concept of peripheral thinking, which involves drawing insights and ideas from outside one's industry or area of expertise. He talks about how leaders should learn from others and not think their company is unique. Paul also shares lessons from his experience working with companies like GE and IBM. As someone with dyslexia, he discusses how he came up with innovative ideas and now teaches others to think like innovators. Paul advocates for leaders to understand their strengths and weaknesses, as well as their employees', in order to get the best from everyone. He is currently working on a project to launch a knowledge-sharing platform in 2024 based on collecting wisdom from organizations around solving problems.

Key Moments:

  • Paul Daniels is an international speaker and author who teaches the concept of "peripheral thinking" to help people and organizations solve problems in innovative ways.
  • Peripheral thinking involves considering solutions from outside one's industry or area of expertise. Great ideas don't belong to just one field.
  • A good leader cares for their people, manages to individuals rather than a group, and ensures everyone is fed before themselves. It's about getting the best from each person.
  • Leaders should be learners, know their own strengths and weaknesses, and share this with their team. Vulnerability builds trust and accountability.
  • Neurodivergent people like Paul can have unique thinking styles and come up with unorthodox solutions. Their differences should be seen as a strength rather than weakness.
  • A team works best when people play to their strengths and others handle their weaknesses. Mental health improves this way rather than forcing tasks on people.
  • Paul helps organizations and leaders develop "peripheral thinking" skills to see more options than challenges and apply ideas beyond their industry.
  • An example showed how a hospital improved patient experience by applying a hotel manager's approach, highlighting cross-industry learning.
  • Paul is working on a project to launch a resource library in 2024 that taps into a nature photography organization's collected wisdom.
  • Attendees are encouraged to visit Paul's website to learn more about his work on peripheral thinking and speaking opportunities.
