Why did I write this book?
Through the experience acquired with large corporations and working with many startups, I could understand the strengths and weaknesses of these two worlds, and also the gaps that currently exist with both types of organization to innovate and create new business. It became clear to me that the front-end and the back-end of innovation were often disconnected or had severe weaknesses that would prevent startups and corporations from effectively searching for new business and, when deciding to go forward with an opportunity, to execute it successfully. This realization prompted me to write this book and share my understanding, experience, and knowledge with the innovation and business community at large. This book will benefit innovators, entrepreneurs, founders, managers, and executives who are trying to break through innovation barriers by avoiding common mistakes and getting answers about practical challenges.Continue reading
One of the many benefits of travel is it gives you the opportunity to explore the amazing variety of cultures around the world. The thrills, adventures, and experiences that traveling offers make the long or short hours on the plane worth it.
Singapore is one of the many countries around the world that is known for its high-tech infrastructure, rapid development, and economy. Hence, it is not surprising to see lots of people around the world wanting to either travel, work, invest or retire in this country.
In this post, we will give you a quick guide to traveling, living, working, investing, and retiring in Singapore.
Home Options in Singapore
Unlike many countries, most people in Singapore live in condos. This is not degrading in any way as this is the norm in here; especially if you are looking to rent a home in the inner city. If you go for new apartments, there is a huge chance that you will also have access to playgrounds, function rooms, pools, and gyms there. You may have to move out to the suburbs to rent a single home though; and keep in mind that these homes do not have gardens — and in most cases, they even don’t have backyards.Continue reading

We had awesome event with you last Friday! I am still amazed from your workSHOCK. It was absolutely above all expectations! I would like to thank you personally and on behalf of all employees for a great time and all the useful insights. I am sure we will meet again soon, since I will promote for another workSHOCK asap! I did a short survey about how everyone understood and experienced it and they all love it. They all confirmed that it is great and useful to have activities that burst our organ… Read more
GTT (what this company calls our project-based 15 day/6 month global leadership development program) was the perfect preparation for this project we are running now and so much of what we did during the 3 weeks can be applied to ‘real life’.
Nothing is impossible in Kimberly’s world. At a point of career change several years ago, from Silicon Valley CEO to something fun, I participated in Kimberly’s “Create a Vision” workshop. We were friends through a professional organization and I just wanted to see what she did for a living. The result: I was, and still am, amazed and delighted with this brilliant woman and the results she helps others to achieve. Kimberly has a unique ability to infect her listeners with transformative optimism… Read more
In a 3 hour workshop you helped to change people’s attitude about our challenge from something with too many obstacles to starting to see the big prize and plan the first baby steps, in short a transformative experience.
Kimberly Wiefling recently conducted an outstanding workshop at Stanford University, on the topic of engineering in the face of very large, complex problems, as part of a new graduate-level course I’m teaching on Engineering and Climate Change. The way Kimberly helped the students experience the frustration of an “unsolvable” problem and then helped them experience how such problems are solved was brilliant. Kimberly’s approach is so lively and fun that even while you are gratified by her terrif… Read more

You provided me so many gifts yesterday. I feel like a large weight has fallen from my back. I’m smiling and feel better about having some direction, thank to you!
Kimberly is a force of nature and a truly unique talent in a sea of consultants that promise change but never quite achieve it. I’ve worked with her both for my own company and together with other clients and I’ve experienced first hand how she uses her talents as a brain scientist, entertainer, empathetic listener, and engineer to get ideas to become reality and groups to become teams. With just 1 visioning session with her 5 years ago, she changed my mindset and put my company onto an entir… Read more
All the advice you gave me during our last meeting is paying off. Who could believe having a white board would do wonders – – just as you said. . . . this afternoon my manager said “You’re so organized and such a good communicator.
