IN THIS SUMMARY

Creative Conspiracy by Leigh Thompson debunks typical myths regarding creativity, and offers practical advice for breaking down the barriers to creative collaboration. Thompson also shows leaders how to pick the right people for creative teams, how to lead and motivate these teams, and how to use the inevitable team conflicts that occur to generate creativity. Of all the different types of teams, creative teams are the most misunderstood and the most likely to be sabotaged by managers and leaders who do not provide them with the necessary tools to succeed. In addition, team membership should be fluid, rather than stagnant, because new members stimulate creativity. Thompson presents evidence-based theories and ideas to help leaders and managers not only lead better work teams, but also become better parents, neighbors, mentors, and athletes.
