Permission is a playful book with serious intent. In a series of light-hearted short sections, integrated with lively graphics, this book guides all who believe in the value of creativity how to give themselves and others permission to go beyond lip-service to actual service. Permission is filled with examples and ideas for giving (and, in turn, getting and taking) permission. It is a simple, clear, and delightful take on the serious subject of innovation, learning and engagement. It is playful because it opens up more space for people to play with possibilities, play new roles and experience more play in the system(s) in which they work. It is serious because when people have permission to innovate, learn and engage significant business results follow. You will discover new ways to: -Energize your team -Generate more ideas -Improve employee engagement -Have more fun at work -Create space for acceptance and inclusion Most individuals and organizations espouse wonderful ideals. They advocate for innovation, questioning old assumptions, change, flexibility, responsiveness, empowerment, engagement and leadership. Making these ideals a reality is something else entirely. In author Pamela Meyer's research on innovative organizations and the space people create for innovating, learning and changing she made a new discovery: While people understand the espoused values of innovation, learning and change, those that actually change, innovate and learn each day do so because they get, take, and most important-give permission. The permission-giver is one of the most important roles anyone can play to encourage innovative thinking, significant learning and engagement at work. Read this book to learn how you and your friends, colleagues and collaborators can generate more ideas, be more of yourself, and have more fun at work!

I'm an adult educator and consultant to nonprofit boards. Boards are groups of committed community leaders who want to do the right thing but often fall back on "safe" modes of thinking and decision making. The result is a never-ending cycle of "the way we've always done things," whether or not that "way" yields effective or visionary outcomes. I read "Permission" with those boards in mind. Every turn of the page yielded an "Aha!" and a "That could work!" Every "permission" offered a low-risk, but potentially high-impact way to stretch even the most hesitant adult.
The ultimate value of "Permission" is two-fold. First, the concepts offered up by Pamela and Brandy are remarkable in their common-sense nature. They aren't radical or frightening. They simply, well, give us permission - to act in ways destined to ensure effective group interaction and creative approaches to thinking about problems and opportunities. They make sense, which virtually eliminates any potential resistance to trying something too "out there."
Second, the book highlights each "permission" individually, which makes it easy to select one area for focus and action. Change is encouraged in manageable forms, which reduces the risk and increases the potential for success. For example, I could easily see introducing the "Permission to Question" to a board, working with them to increase their comfort with increasing the role of inquiry in their meetings and governance work. If a group ignored everything else in the book (but what a mistake that would be!), giving members permission to speak up and ask those questions that need to be asked has the potential to completely transform.
I must admit, while I read "Permission" wearing my consultant's hat, I paused fairly often to ponder how I might benefit from more deliberate focus in aspects of my personal life.
"Permission" is a quick and powerful read - a must for anyone who works in and with groups, and who enjoys a good personal stretch now and again.
Most of us are constantly waiting for getting permission. It is ingrained into our thinking and behaviour.
And we are not aware of it.
This book brings this point alive. Giving & Taking 'Permission' is perhaps the most important element
in creating an innovation culture.
The book is an easy read, does not 'pontificate'

This book makes a wonderful gift, especially for those coworkers that have their nose to grindstone so often that they forget to breathe, laugh and just plan be. After reading this book, they may just realize, as I did, that we all need to color outside of the lines sometimes.
