Along with Gerard Puccio and Marie Mance, I published an article recently in an attempt to formalize the concept of Creative Leadership (it will appear in the Winter, 2010 edition of Academic Exchange Quarterly). In addition, I was able to present on the subject recently at the International Leadership Association’s Annual Conference held in Boston, which brings the freshest ideas about leadership into dialogue. I’m happy to report that the concept was very well received! The sticking point for some seems to be their outdated, stunted or unclear ideas about what creativity is – which, I suppose is nothing new.
If you are interested in the idea of creative leadership, check out the summary of the concept below, and feel free to let us know what you think! We are still looking for that illusive “magic bullet” that makes the concept and practice immediately relatable to the “average Joe or Joann”.
