"Leadership without science is unconvincing. Leadership without art is uninspiring."
-Dr. Henry Mintzberg (paraphrased)
"Man is unique, not because he does science and not because he doe art. But because science and arts equally are expressions of his mind."
-Dr. Jacob Bronowski
Evidence-based practice is transforming medicine, education and clinical psychology. It is transforming management as well. However, there is a problem. The science of management doesn't engage the whole human being, it doesn't spark our passions, fire our imaginations or provide lift-off to our desire to act. For that we need something more visceral, more deeply and directly felt: this is the domain of the arts, that other half of our nature as human beings.
In this webinar we bring together two accomplished educators: David Creelman, a Fellow of the Centre for Evidence-based Management and John Cimino, President and CEO of Creative Leaps International. Together, they point to several practical habits of mind for adding depth and effectiveness to our leadership thinking, engaging both the scientific and artistic aspects of our natures.
