Biz Times columnist Daniel Steininger will be at Boswell on Thursday, April 18, 7 pm, discussing his new book.— Boswell Books
We learn to walk and eventually talk, one of the most complex achievements possible, by the time we turn five years old. The truth is we can all be creative, and for business leaders, it's not an option-it's a necessity as we live in a world that's constantly being disrupted by technology. Business leaders need to learn the tools of creativity in their personal lives and the tools of innovation in their corporate lives to navigate the never-ending obstacles to running a successful business. Drawing on the lessons he's learned in the corporate world and in his role as chairman of the board of harbor commissioners overseeing the Port of Milwaukee, the author shares lessons on how business leaders can successfully lead organizations to creative breakthroughs that drive innovation and success. The book includes a section devoted to case studies of individuals and companies that have demonstrated high creativity and innovation so you can learn how to drive change - as well as examples of companies that failed to innovate and suffered as a result.
