Successful leadership today relies heavily on an individual′s ability to effectively respond to and proactively drive change―in short, to be creative. This book helps readers enhance their creative talents and employ these skills as a leader. New to the Second Edition is an expanded discussion of the important role creativity plays in leadership, a more extensive account of the skills necessary to be an effective creative leader, a broader range of historical and contemporary examples, and enhanced graphics throughout that bring the Creative Problem Solving model to life visually.

About the Author:

Gerard J. Puccio is Department Chair and Professor at the International Center for Studies in Creativity, Buffalo State. Gerard has written more than 60 articles, chapters and books. His most recent book The Innovative Team, co-authored with Chris Grivas, is a fable about a team that turns around a dysfunctional situation through the use of proven creative-thinking tools. In 2011 he and his colleagues, Marie Mance and Mary Murdock, published the second edition of their widely adopted book Creative Leadership: Skills that Drive Change.

 

Gerard is an accomplished speaker and consultant; he has worked with major corporations and universities. Some of his recent clients include the BBC, The Smithsonian Institute, BNP Paribas, Rubbermaid, and Coca-Cola. In 2013 Dr. Puccio was selected by the Teaching Company as one of America’s Great Lecturers and as such was invited to design and deliver a course comprised of 24 video sessions. This “Great Course,” titled The Creative Thinker’s Toolkit, was released in January 2014.

 

Among other responsibilities, Gerard serves as a Distinguished Visiting Scholar at Sheridan College, Oakville, Canada, and is a member of the selection committee for the Toy Hall of Fame at the National Museum of Play.

Book Description SAGE Publications Inc, United States, 2011. Paperback. Condition: New. 2nd Revised edition. Language: English. Brand new Book. Creative Leadership: Skills That Drive Change demonstrates how creative thinking is an essential element of leadership, especially when bringing about change. In this engaging book, the authors provide a unique combination of conceptual arguments, practical principles, and proven tools to enhance future leaders' effectiveness in creating and managing change. Key Features:- Intimately connects leadership and creativity: Leadership is now characterized as the catalyst for change, while creative thinking is the process that leads to change. This is the first book to make an explicit and elaborate conceptual link between creativity and leadership. - Utilizes the Creative Problem Solving process: This book explores the more than 50 years of Creative Problem Solving (CPS) research and application. While other books focus on creative thinking and CPS, this is the first to offer a philosophical position that is then followed up with specific principles and procedures that leaders can employ to deliberately enhance their effectiveness in creating and managing change. - Promotes "deliberate creativity": The authors are all faculty at the International Center for Studies in Creativity, Buffalo State-State University of New York, internationally renowned as a leading authority on the topic of Creative Problem Solving. Their rich experience encourages students to take a proactive approach toward the production of novel and useful ideas that address a predicament or opportunity. Seller Inventory # AAV9781412977579
