Take 100 % of yourself to Work
There is a direct correlation between how much you enjoy your work and how well you do it. Being yourself and expressing your individuality is the greatest asset you can bring to work.

Make sure you’re not too busy for creativity
Instilling the energy of an entrepreneurial mindset is the best way to hone creativity and innovation in a corporate environment.

We all have creativity and the capacity to innovate within us
Creativity is a skill we all innately have – it's in our DNA. The only difference is some of us learn and practice creative habits and others don’t.

With these focus points Sahar Hashemi is developing an innovation setup and entrepreneurship in even big organizations at every level. By telling us her story, she will work out key habits that motivate for following new or other pathways in developing business.
