    There is perhaps no leadership challenge more daunting than managing creativity - and more urgent than delivering breakthrough innovation. How do you harness some of the most passionate, intelligent people in your organization without stifling them? How do you simultaneously unleash their energy and channel it into something tangible? Lina Echeverría offers seven proven principles through which new ideas come to fruition, from unleashing passion and drive, and embracing productive conflict, to emphasizing excellence and structure while living values that liberate creativity.

    Story
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The narrator should speak to the adult audience but instead was enunciating as if reading a fairy tale to a child.


    Has Idea Agent turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No.


    What didn’t you like about Karen Saltus’s performance?

    Too wispy and lyrical.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Not really. The content was more of a biography rather than a book about dealing with creative knowledge workers. She cited her experiences in R&D at Corning and that probably doesn't represent a great experience set to author a book presumably about all creative teams. She should have done more homework regarding studies in the field of team dynamics for instance.
