Creative Leadership

In a book by the same name - Creative Leadership: Skills that drive change - the authors [Gerard Puccio, Mary Murdock and Marie Mance] summarise the 5 tenets on which the book is based. They support the recent IBM Report about creativity being a core competency for leaders.
  1. Creativity is a process that leads to change. You don't get deliberate change without it.
  2. Leaders help the individuals and organisations they influence to grow by deliberately facilitating productive change.
  3. Because leaders bring about change, creativity is a core leadership competency.
  4. An individuals ability to think creatively and to facilitate creative thinking in others can be enhanced.
  5. As individuals develop their creative thinking and master those factors that promote creativity, they positively impact their leadership effectiveness.

Makes sense to me. How about you?
