The Leaders EdgeKey Inspiration for the Day:  Creative leadership is the work of artists.  In the book The Leader’s Edge – Six Creative Competencies for Navigating Complex Challenges, co-author Charles J. Palus, PhD identifies the six unique intellectual tools necessary for successfully tackling complex challenges. He finds in Kevin Asbjornson’s Leadership and Performance experience Artistry of Leadership®, a number of these essential components. “Artistry is essential to leadership, but for a long time we have been stuck on the surface of that particular metaphor,” Palus says. “Kevin Asbjornson takes us deep into the subtleties of how and why artistry matters for the leadership work of paying attention, connecting, and creating shared meaning. The aesthetic competencies of managing and leading are made clear in the Artistry of Leadership.” Palus is Senior Enterprise Associate at the Center for Creative Leadership.
