In the Shower with Picasso Quick View

In The Shower With Picasso

The art of turning uncertainty into opportunity The legendary artist Pablo Picasso took baths when he was in  need of new ideas for his work. Other people take walks in the  park or visit an art gallery or watch Youtube – in an attempt to  spark their creativity and imagination. This book inspires us to work harder with our creativity – both as  individuals and companies. Being creative is now critical in our  careers, but most people regard creativity as somewhat mystical,  slippery and a rare entity. In fact, all of us are capable of  creativity – if that is what we want. Often, it is about having the  right mindset and finding the right spark to set off your creativity. This book contains wonderful stories from Scandinavia of people  from different backgrounds – opera, architecture, science, art,  drugs, sport, toys, film, technology – and how they find and use  their creativity. Scandinavians are one of the most creative  groups of people in the world, and as such, this book represents  the Scandinavian way to creativity.

Flawed but Willing

LEADING LARGE ORGANIzATIONS IN THE AGE OF CONNECTION
Author: Khurshed Dehnugara
Instability, disturbance, emergence, networks, informal learning, trial, error, adaptability, low growth, fluctuation and momentum – these are the experiences that are increasingly dominating the lives of today’s business leaders and managers. There is a growing awareness that the old industrial constructs of detailed planning, perfection and process are no longer working as effectively as we might wish in our large, established organizations.
This book is a challenge to the way we relate to each other and lead businesses in the post-industrial age; it is full of passionate stories, reflections and insights. The writing inspires the practice of alternative forms of courage, acceptance of our imperfections and new methods of contact with each other as we navigate the changing nature of the workplace.
