Innovators are gifted people per se. Most of them own the courage to embark on explorations that give them the opportunity to see and access many new and exciting things. They are always looking for surprising and challenging situations that help them grow personally, professionally and find the opportunity to help others and improve the way people live.

Therefore, what can you give to someone curious, brave, and open to new things? That is not an easy task. Conventional gifts will show you care but may not make them go wow. They probably know something newer, better, or more efficient. So, what type of gift can you find for that special friend or family member who is the innovator in your life?

First Step: Do you think of yourself as an innovator? If you were Marie Curie or Galileo Galilei what would you like to get for Christmas? Imagine Steve Jobs or Nikola Tesla at home by the Christmas Tree unwrapping the first gift. What would you like to see under that colorful paper?

Second Step: Innovation is impossible without passion and curiosity, innovators are somehow nonconformist with the reality that surrounds them and that is why they tend to question it and put together ideas and people, that can improve or simply transform our ways. Think about something you or someone would like to change.

Third Step: Very often innovators are happy connecting people and relating to new ideas, concepts, and cultures. They long for knowledge, news, methods, answers, and devices that provide them with new experiences. They love everything new and also unexpected. Innovators enjoy to come out of their comfort zone, to explore, discover, and transform themselves constantly.

So, gifts that can fit an innovator would be:

1. Anything related to challenges like learning something new or confronting a fear. (trips, sports, arts, can do that)

2. Anything that relates to discovery (books, courses, workshops, city explorations, etc.)

3. Anything that encourages their creativity and critical thinking (debates, forums, networks, etc.)

4. Anything that helps them to connect with interesting people (club memberships, community activities, volunteering opportunities, etc.)

Maybe this crazy year of 2020 is turning more people into innovators in their professions at work, but also in their own life and personal growth. It has been a challenging year and this is probably the opportunity to make a change and transform our future into something new.

El sondeo se enfoca en empresas IT con miras a entender y procesar necesidades de transformación digital en entornos laborales, procesos y estrategias de colaboración y expansión. Muchos de los participantes han trabajado previamente proyectos con nosotros y expresan sus opiniones desde un punto de vista personal, pero sobre todo desde las necesidades de sus empresas y sus equipos de trabajo.

Han respondido a nuestras entrevistas 42 responsables de IT, con un cuestionario por empresa para una muestra total de 42 empresas en diferentes ciudades de España.
