The Characters of Creativity: Activate Creativity by Understanding Your Colleagues

BIS. Nov. 2023. 240p. ISBN 9789063696696. pap. $26. BUS
In the workplace, the needs and preferences of creative people may conflict with a company’s organizational systems. Pearce, who consults with businesses and industries on how to foster an environment that supports creative and innovative thinkers, offers compassionate advice and strategies for workers, managers, and colleagues. Chapters about the meaning, nuances, and encouragement of inventiveness within business settings are alternated with sections about the types of visionary people one might find in the workplace. Pearce is careful to explain that his descriptions of these types of employees are composites, so they may not entirely match any one real person or even groups of people.
VERDICT Readers interested in organizational dynamics or the overlap between business and creativity will find much to consider. Recommended for libraries with a strong interest in business literature.
