Episode 15: How to develop a disruptive and innovative mindset

Disruptive companies are industry game-changers. They redefine the rules of the industries they disrupt and move the world forward. In this episode we spoke to Dr. Nik Eberl who is a scholar and practitioner in innovation. We explored how entrepreneurs can develop a disruptive mindset and the tools and strategies they can use.

Innovation and disruption are not reserved for entrepreneurs such as Elon Musk. By observing your industry, determining whether customers are getting value for their money, and by experimenting you too can become a disruptive innovator.

You may watch our interview here:

Dr. Nik Eberl is of German descent and is the co-founder of many global companies including The Unicorn Disruptovator, The LinkedIn DealMaker, and Clients for Life.

He is the author of many thought leadership publications in innovation ย including the ๐—ฅ๐—ฒ๐—ฐ๐—ถ๐—ฝ๐—ฟ๐—ผ๐—ฐ๐—ฎ๐˜๐—ถ๐—ผ๐—ป ๐— ๐—ฎ๐—ฟ๐—ธ๐—ฒ๐˜๐—ถ๐—ป๐—ดโ„ข ๐—•๐—น๐˜‚๐—ฒ๐—ฝ๐—ฟ๐—ถ๐—ป๐˜. Using principles from this book, Dr. Eberl helped South Africa position itself to host its first Soccer World Cup.

I hope you find these tools useful as you prepare for the new year.

  1. Hi Mmathebe,
    I have just read this publication and already realized that you are a highly skilled woman, congratulations. You also seem to be very talented.
    I have tried to run quite a few businesses and non of them worked. My last business was a beauty franchise and that is where I lost a lot of money. I am now unemployed but still want to try again.
    My question- do you do mentoring?
