This was a fantastically researched, easy to read text. Perfect way to learn more about how we process information. Interesting ways that explain how we might capitalize on what we know, what we can create on our own, and with others with similar or different genius. A useful resource for those in leadership, educators, parents, . . . A great read and one I will refer to in the future.
The author details how to avoid "hurry scurry syndrome" where one would hurry to a conclusion or scurry to gather a team to groupthink and instead become a "business artist". A business artist will draw on one of the five facets: seer, observer, alchemist, fool, or sage for creative inspiration.
Excellent book on helping us understand our creative strengths and how to nurture our weaker creative side. Tons of practical advice and inspiring examples of people who have excelled by being creative. Definitely a must read!
