Where do creativity and leadership intersect? What strategies and tools can we borrow from artists to improve or even transform our approaches to leadership? Using inspirational quotes and advice from a variety of visual and performing artists, designers and makers as well as from leadership literature, this interactive panel will invite participants to explore a variety of methods to use both at work and in developing and nurturing a personal creative practice. Being a leader doesn’t have to mean putting out your creative spark and, in fact, we argue that creativity is essential to being a great leader. Join us in exploring practical approaches and strategies that you can use individually and share with work teams and throughout your organization, such as positive reflection and envisioning, playful learning, and experimentation.
