Innovative Thinking to Deal with Change

Our friend worked for a company for 10 years and decided it was time for a change. He didn't necessarily want to leave the company. However, he was looking for a new opportunity within the company. He gave his 2 weeks notice for his position and told his manager of his intentions.

After a week passed, he had not made any progress toward securing a new position. He decided it was time to get creative in his approach. In order to get the word out to the management team that he was available for other positions, he sent out the following "movie poster" using humor and parody reviews by key managers in the company:

Needless to say, it got attention! After sending this out, he was offered a new position in a new department. Due to his innovative approach, he created the change that worked for him!

Where do you need to approach change with innovative thinking?
