Publisher's Summary

Successful leaders of creative teams have mastered the difficult transition from doing the work to leading the work, and this book shows how. Todd Henry picks up where The Accidental Creative left off and provides an indispensable handbook of on-the-ground, tactical advice for new managers of creatives. He draws from interviews with brilliant leaders and his experience consulting in creative organizations to share a wealth of practical advice, including: 

  • Why conflict can be a good thing and how to manage it in a healthy way. 
  • How to build time and attention buffers to protect your team's ability to do its best work. 
  • How to deal with the imbalance of power on your team and manage inevitable struggles that arise. 
  • How to create "hunting trails" that will keep your team inspired and motivated to deliver brilliant work. 
  • Why you should still "get your hands dirty", even as you strive to remove yourself from the work. 
  • Why you should fight to measure value, not time, when evaluating your team's work.

Todd Henry is always on point for brilliance

I've been in leadership positions for over 18 years and I needed this. A great listen and a perfect follow on from his other books. This will help me lead my team towards excellence. Todd Henry doesn't narrow down to a particular field, he makes thinking in any field better.

Much better than Accidental Creative

This book is much better than Accidental creative. You can tell that Henry has matured and developed in his writing ability. This book hit the nail on the head for working with creatives... Now if my leadership would just put these things into practice!

Great!

One of the best leadership/management books I’ve read in a long time. Solid advice that you can put into practice right away. I would highly recommend this book for business owners and team leaders.
