You Aren't Alone with Your Innovation Challenges

Have you thought about the true impact of today’s disruptions on your business?


The mass exodus of talent is leaving organizations without the resources to get work done. Even worse, years of institutional knowledge is being lost - and being brought to competitors.

And what about supply chain disruptions? This is impacting everything that is delivered to you, and what you ship to your customers. You can’t get paid if you can’t produce and deliver.


Of course, there is AI, remote work, inflation, and the list goes on. 

And this is just the beginning. Unexpected disruptions, new competitors, and market shifts are happening faster than ever.

Do you want to wait until all this happens - or do you want to get ahead of the curve and future proof your company?

Think about your biggest challenges. What's the cost of not finding workable solutions – quickly? Lost revenues? Missed opportunities? Commoditization? Irrelevance?


Now I know you have great people and you're a great leader yourself. You have ideas. And I bet your people send in their ideas like it's a suggestion box, expecting them to just happen. Right?

Actually, I suspect that one problem might be that you have TOO many ideas. Which are viable? How do we prioritize? And can we still do what we're doing while creating something new? How do we find the time for this?


I hear you. You aren’t alone. And none of this is your fault. 


You may not have had access to the frameworks and techniques. More importantly, you may not have had the time and space to master them through mentorship and community. This is a “get things done” program where you and a team member produce real results over the course of 12 months.

My goal is to make this fun. This isn't your 6th grade history class. This is coming together with top-notch innovators across industries. 

We are limiting the first cohort to 10 non-competitive organizations. 


And I'm only selecting the best.

Introducing The Invisible Solutions® Mastermind

Grow Your Business by Learning, Sharing, and Collaborating with Other Leading Innovators

What Is It?

What Is It?

  • The Invisible Solutions® Mastermind is a 12-month program where you meet on a regular basis with a hand-picked group of leading innovators and executives.
  • It is a safe space to have honest conversations with non-competitive companies. 
  • All discussions are confidential and often extend beyond innovation to other leadership topics. 
  • Our first cohort is limited to 10 non-competitive companies. 
Who Is It For?

Who Is This For?

  • You are a senior executive who focuses on innovation, growth, or strategy.
  • Your business revenues are at least $500M a year. 
  • Your organization recognizes the value of innovation.
  • You are open-minded and willing to learn and share your experiences.

Who Is This Not For?

  • Bureaucrats who enjoy stifling innovation.
  • Egomaniacs who think they have all of the answers - and want to take all of the credit.
  • Administrators who think innovation is about creating PowerPoint slides.
  • Organizations who want to play it safe and focus only on quarterly earnings.
What Do You Get?

What Do You Get?

  • This is more than a learning experience; it is about generating real ROI. Therefore we provide a number of ways to support you:
    • virtual group sessions
    • in-person retreats
    • a content portal
    • a discuss board
    • on-on-one support
  • And because innovation is a team sport, you will want your team to participate with you. Therefore, two employees get full access with your organization's membership. More team members can be added for an additional fee.

For just a little more than the cost of one speech by Stephen Shapiro, you and one other team member get 12 months of access to him and other brilliant innovators

What's Our Process for Creating an Innovation Culture?

The FAST Innovation Model

Stephen’s innovation approach helps organizations significantly increase performance by uncovering hidden opportunities. 

His FAST Innovation model drives tenfold improvements in innovation ROI over traditional methods:


Innovate where you differentiate. 

Clarify your differentiator and use it as a tool to prioritize innovation investments.


Don’t think outside the box; find a better box. 

Leveraging the Invisible Solutions® tools, reveal hidden solutions to your difficult problems by asking better questions. 


Expertise is the enemy of innovation. 

Your teams will find breakthrough solutions faster through effective collaboration and by looking beyond their areas of expertise.


Don’t fail; experiment.    

Don’t glorify failure. Instead, embrace effective experimentation as a means of reducing risk.

Monthly Virtual Group Calls

Monthly Virtual Group Calls

    • We hold monthly 2-hour online group calls with all mastermind members.
    • These aren't webinars. These are roll-up-your-sleeves hands-on sessions. During these calls we share new tools, best practices, and stories. More importantly, we will apply the approaches to your innovation challenges.
    • During the first 45-minutes, Stephen shares new content with the group based on specific member challenges.
    • The remaining time is for collaborative hot seats, real-time application, and sharing.
    • The first 45 minutes will be recorded and added to the content library. For confidentiality reasons, the second half of each call is only recorded for the benefit of the member in the hot seat. Therefore, you need to attend to get access.

In-Person Retreats

In-Person Retreats

  • So that we can go deeper than the virtual sessions, twice a year we hold an intensive hands-on 3-day in-person meeting. 
  • Bring your biggest challenges and allow Stephen Shapiro and the other members to provide their insights.
  • You will leave with a blueprint for your business.
  • Each retreat will include a custom-developed learning experience to maximize the impact of your time investment.

  • The mastermind is based on 25 years of innovation work by Stephen Shapiro. 
  • Members receive access to content and tools that get dripped out over time so that everyone is progressing at the same pace. 
  • The portal will include all recordings, hours of videos, books and articles, tools and templates, and much more.
  • All members get access to our complete set of innovation tools including the Invisible Solutions® Lens Browser.
  • In between virtual and in-person meetings, you will want a chance to collaborate with others in the group. Our online discussion board enables you to ask questions and provide solutions.

What's Our Model for Creating an Innovation Culture?

Creating a culture of innovation is not a one-time event involving only a few people. It is a process and system that involves everyone in your organization. The goal is to create a sustainable and scalable capability.

        • We work with the leadership team to make sure everyone is aligned
        • We certify select individuals who will be your innovation "black belts" (Certified Problem Solvers)
        • We create a wider network of innovation ambassadors who will bring change to the entire organization
        • We provide educational materials for everyone to learn the process

        During your membership, we will explore what other support might help you drive innovation deeper into your organization.

About Stephen Shapiro

Stephen Shapiro drives innovation by showing leaders and their teams how to approach, tackle, and solve their more difficult business challenges.

Halfway through his 15-year tenure at Accenture, while co-leading the company’s business process reengineering practice (focused on business efficiency), Stephen realized his work was responsible for people losing their jobs.

Wanting to create jobs rather than eliminating them, Stephen founded Accenture’s 20,000-person process and innovation practice which focused on growth.

In 2001, after publishing his first book, 24/7 Innovation, Stephen left Accenture to become a full-time innovation speaker and advisor to clients around the world. He is the author of six books, including his latest, Invisible Solutions.

Today, Stephen continues to focus on transforming the way businesses like 3M, P&G, Marriott, Nike, NASA, and Microsoft improve their innovation practices.
