When people think about creative people, the kind of persons who usually come to mind are artists, musicians, performers, stage and screen actors, writers, and other people who have a huge sense of whimsy. What would you think if I told you that there are also a lot of people in the corporate world? Would you believe me?

If the CEOs of major corporations don't have a creative bone in their bodies then we would not be enjoying all of the perks of modern living.
