Description

"This book completely changed the way I think about creative innovation . . . A must-read." — Cal Newport, best-selling author of Deep Work "If we all crave creativity so much, why do we reject new ideas so often? Jen Mueller's smart new book unravels this puzzle." – Daniel H. Pink, best-selling author of Drive and A Whole New Mind Business leaders say they want creativity and need real innovation in order to thrive. But according to startling research from management professor Jennifer Mueller, these same leaders chronically reject creative solutions, even as they profess commitment to innovation. Mueller's research reveals that it's not just CEOs but educators, parents, and other social trendsetters who struggle to accept new and creative ideas. Mueller parses the tough questions that these findings raise. Do we all have an inherent prejudice against creative ideas? Can we learn to outsmart this bias? Creative Change combines analysis of the latest research with practical guidance on how to shift your mindset, and offers a wealth of counterintuitive recommendations to help you embrace the creative ideas you want. "Mueller, an accomplished scholar in the management field, has developed a well-formulated argument for creativity. Her ideas and research need to be available to academics, business practitioners, and, really, everyone." — Library Journal
