Selling requires communication, and people increasingly communicate using social media. So, it is not surprising that sales people try to understand how to use social communication effectively. But many of them struggle to shake off old paradigms and few have figured it out. Even fewer have codified it as well as our guest this week.

This innochat will be hosted by Ken Gordon whose guest is Toby Bottorf, VP of Service and Experience Design, at Continuum. Here is their framing post.

On #innochat, from time to time, we’ve discussed how an organization can group innovation opportunities into different categories. We’ve also discussed how an innovation progresses through multiple categories of adopters, as it diffuses through a population. But have we linked these two perspectives together?
This week, we welcome Ken Gordon to the host seat. Ken (@quickmuse) is Content, Conversation, and Community Strategist at Continuum Innovation in Boston. He is a well known innocat, and recent initiator of the #innochat facebook group. Ken's chosen topic relates to innovation in education and here is his framing post:
Is life a standardized test… or an impossible problem to be solved?
Those familiar with the work of Ted Dintersmith know that the above is a question designed to trip up those who don’t worship at the altar of innovation.

If we have not seen something, then it is difficult to believe it. If we find it counter-intuitive (which, of course, depends on our intuition!), we might, even, convince ourselves that it is impossible. Then we'd be completely stuck!
