Unlocking Creativity

How to solve any problem and make the best decisions by shifting creative mindsets

Published: Wednesday, January 9, 2019 - 13:00

(Wiley: Hoboken, NJ) -- The book, Unlocking Creativity: How to Solve Any Problem and Make the Best Decisions (Wiley, 2019), is an exploration of the creative process and how organizations can clear the way for innovation.

In many organizations, creative individuals face stubborn resistance to new ideas. Managers and executives oftentimes reject innovation and unconventional approaches due to misplaced allegiance to the status quo. Questioning established practices or challenging prevailing sentiments is frequently met with stiff resistance. In this climate of stifled creativity and inflexible adherence to conventional wisdom, potentially game-changing ideas are dismissed outright. Senior leaders claim to value creativity, yet often lack the knowledge to provide a creative framework. Unlocking Creativity offers effective methods and real-world examples of how the most successful organizations create cultures of innovation and experimentation.

Best-selling author and scholar Michael Roberto presents a thorough investigation of organizational obstacles to creative thought. Highly relevant to the growth crises many enterprises face in today’s economic landscape, this book examines how to break barriers to spark creativity and foster new ideas. This insightful and informative work allows business executives, senior managers, and organization leaders to:
• Recognize the six organizational mindsets that impede creativity and innovation.
• Learn how to tear down the barriers that obstruct the creative process.
• Create an environment that allows talented people to thrive.
• Encourage creative collaboration in teams throughout an organization.

Leaders do not have to conceive innovative ideas, but rather open the path for curious and creative employees within their organization. Unlocking Creativity aids organizations in removing obstacles to the creative process and helps to form an atmosphere of imagination and innovation.
