Stephen Shapiro Says Stop Thinking Outside the Box - Find a Better Box

Many think "outside-the-box" is the bedrock of innovation. But innovation expert Stephen Shapiro, author of Best Practices Are Stupid, shows that outside-the-box isn't king. Instead it's a misconception that, if corrected, could lead to big organizational advancements.

Boston, MA, October 17, 2011 (Straight Line PR) -- While reading through the Table of Contents for Stephen Shapiro's latest book, Best Practices Are Stupid, readers inevitably reach this heading and do a double-take: "Don't Think Outside the Box; Find a Better Box". Really, who's ever heard the box analogy challenged? Turns out that Shapiro has.

In fact, he teaches just that.

"Finding a better box is the way to go," says Shapiro, innovation leader and author of Best Practices Are Stupid ( )

Shapiro defines a "better box" by way of quoting the writer who penned the phrase, "creativity within constraints". Well-defined challenges are an excellent way to guide innovative efforts, because they allow employees, customers and the community to focus their energies on finding solutions that are relevant, says Shapiro ( ).

Challenge-driven approaches allow companies to assign certain things before actually investing the valuable time of employees, such as:

* Owners
* Resources
* Funding
* Evaluators
* And evaluation criteria

In his latest book, Best Practices Are Stupid, Shapiro really emphasizes this point by citing the example of two fishermen. The first casts a huge net over a huge body of water. He catches some fish, but also a shoe, gunk, and fish he never wanted to catch. But the second fisherman prepares the right rod, reel, line, leader and bait and knows exactly which fish he's after, so he goes to the exact spot he things they are.

"This is the challenge-driven approach," says Shapiro (sign up for his monthly Free Innovation Tips at ). "And if done correctly, establishing boundaries does not have to put constraints on innovative efforts. Jump on board with that."

About Stephen Shapiro:
Stephen Shapiro is one of the foremost authorities on innovation and collaboration, and has personally touched hundreds of thousands of lives in over 40 countries. While Stephen's insights apply to virtually any organization, big or small, he has contributed to shifting the innovation culture for such Fortune 500 organization as Staples, GE, BP, Johnson & Johnson, Fidelity Investments, Pearson Education, Nestle, and Bristol-Myers Squibb. As the founder and creator of a 20,000 person internal innovation practice within Accenture, and advisor to hundreds of organizations worldwide, Stephen possesses a rare and extensive arsenal of tools, allowing him to arm any organization with the knowledge they need to shift their most threatening challenges.

Karen Lundquist Announces Launch of Legal English Discussion Book for Learners of English for the Law

Accomplished Minneapolis attorney and English legal language consultant Karen Lundquist announces the release of her newest book, English for the Law: Legal English Discussion for ESL and EFL Students.

Minneapolis, MN, October 17, 2011 - Accomplished Minneapolis attorney and English legal language consultant Karen Lundquist announces the release of her newest book, English for the Law: Legal English Discussion for ESL and EFL Students. Published October 12, 2011, the work is directed at ESL (English as a Second Language) or EFL (English as a Foreign Language) students who are studying English for their jobs as lawyers, judges, notaries or other legal professionals. It also serves as an indespensible learning tool for those students who need to know technical legal English for their work, and those who want to be comfortable discussing complex legal issues in English.

Karen states, "The objective of the book is to encourage discussion. It is based on the belief that the most effective way of learning a foreign language and its vocabulary, especially technical terminology, is by using it in directed exercises that focus on the specific subject matter such as law. This book provides exercises that allow students to do precisely that." This professional learning guide is available through Smashwords here and costs just $4.99 to download in electronic format. Readers are also able to download a sample of the book for free.

This book is best suited to students who have at least an intermediate level of English, as there are no discussions or lessons aimed specifically at grammar. Instead, it is assumed that the students are comfortable talking and reading in English but are not necessarily familiar with the specific vocabulary of English for the law. Specifically, the book addresses legal English topics including:

* The Practice of Law

* Attorney Ethics

* Attorney Fees

* Women in the Legal Profession

* Employment Law

* Civil Procedure

* The Courts

* Judicial Reforms

* And many more...

Each section of English for the Law: Legal English Discussion for ESL and EFL Students is divided into chapters, each of which represents a discussion topic. Each chapter includes materials that introduce the topic, such as a statute or court decision. Discussion questions follow. The exercises are based on American law, although they are not lessons in American law. Instead, U.S. statutes, rules and constitutional articles are used as departure points and vehicles for the discussion.

About Karen Lundquist: Karen Lundquist is a multilingual business attorney who owns the Attenza Law Firm in Minneapolis, Minnesota. She is also a veteran professor of English, serving for two decades as a cultured, caring instructor. She specializes in training professionals from various legal realms in developing specific legal-based vocabulary sets that are integral for their abilities to perform an array of spoken career duties.
