The Artists' Mind

Our colleague Steve Taylor created this fascinating slide show from notes and images after a Visual Explorer session at the University of Bath, at a workshop he did on the topic Artists' Mind.

Also, take a look at Steve's presentation on Creative Leadership given at Cranfield University, May 27th, 2008.
In this presentation, we will explore the possibility of approaching leadership as a creative or artistic process. I apply an action based conception of creativity (Sawyer, 2007; Sawyer, 2006) to the domain of leadership to develop the concept of creative leadership as a basis for an art of leadership (e.g. Duke, 1986; Grint, 2001; Hatch, Kostera, & Kozminski, 2004; Samier & Bates, 2006). Conceptually, this implies that the key facets of creative leadership are that it :1) requires double domain knowledge, 2) uses an artist's mind / approach, 3) is authentic, and 4) is participatory. -- Steven S. Taylor, Ph.D.
