Welcome to Episode 195 of Building My Legacy.

IBM Master Inventor Neil Sahota has been called “Game Changer” because of his “think different” approach. In this podcast Neil shares with us the three ways to think disruptively out of the box: repurpose something, cultivate a different perspective and challenge assumptions. In addition, as Neil explains, to get real value, you have to “put the pieces together, and that’s why you have to create a collaborative environment.” Neil cofounded the United Nations AI for Good Initiative and today, as an AI advisor, he continues to help the UN build out its ecosystem of strategic partnerships — a real challenge with an organization of 47 agencies that historically have not worked together.

So if you want to know:

  • How to identify disruptive opportunities and get people to think outside the box
  • About the importance for companies to share knowledge more quickly and easily
  • Why businesses need to take away the fear of failure
  • How you can only be open to possibilities when you admit you need help
