Publisher's Summary

In many organizations, creative individuals face stubborn resistance to new ideas. Managers and executives oftentimes reject innovation and unconventional approaches due to misplaced allegiance to the status quo. Questioning established practices or challenging prevailing sentiments is frequently met with stiff resistance. In this climate of stifled creativity and inflexible adherence to conventional wisdom, potentially game-changing ideas are dismissed outright. Senior leaders claim to value creativity, yet often lack the knowledge to provide a creative framework.

Best-selling author and scholar Michael Roberto presents a thorough investigation of organizational obstacles to creative thought. Highly relevant to the growth crises many enterprises face in today's economic landscape, this book examines how to break barriers to spark creativity and foster new ideas. This insightful and informative work allows business executives, senior managers, and organization leaders to recognize the six organizational mindsets that impede creativity and innovation; learn how to tear down the barriers that obstruct the creative process; create an environment that allows talented people to thrive; and encourage creative collaboration in teams throughout an organization.

Pleasantly Surprised

This was one of the best books I’ve “read” in a while. The examples and quotes were so varied and interesting that I learned about topics that I knew would be of interest to the different groups of people that I’m around daily (colleagues, my mother, college management students, my high schooler). So, I shared different stories and case studies with various people. Everyone was intrigued. I will continue to recommend this informative and entertaining book to others.
