The Medici Effect
World-renowned author and motivational speaker, Johansson uncovers non-traditional ways of thinking that create unparalleled positive change for both individuals and organizations.
Johansson’s message urges individuals and organizations to break down traditional silos and step into a place where different fields, disciplines, departments, and cultures converge to create new, remarkable breakthroughs.
According to Johansson, “I woke up one morning in March of 2001 with a clear vision. I saw, in my mind’s eye, two light beams intersecting, with each beam representing a different field or culture. I realized that if: 1) new ideas are combinations of existing ideas, and 2) more ideas lead to better ideas, then intersections should favor innovation, because instead of adding the number of idea combinations in each field, you are now multiplying them. The vision stayed with me for less than a minute, but came to define my life.”
This moment of inspiration has led Johannson to speak in over 40 countries on six continents sending a message impacting individuals and organizations alike, inspiring them to enact positive change.
