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!

Moser-Wellman promotes her own theory of creativity and problem solving through a system of five faces. The approach is useful for making sure all elements are represented. With a team, it would help ensure a balance or mix.
