Risk-taking and Creative Leadership: Contributions to the 7th International Zermatt Symposium on Creativity in Economics, Arts and Science
Shepheard-Walwyn, 1998 - Business & Economics - 250 pages
Creative leadership, it is suggested, can make the apparently impossible possible. This volume, based on the 7th International Zermatt Symposium on Creativity in Economics, Arts and Science, examines risk-taking and creative leadership. It argues that the greatest obstacles are often psychological rather than financial or practical, such as the fixed attitudes of authorities, officials, peer groups and colleagues. The book asserts that the innovators require courage, resourcefulness and perseverance to overcome prejudice and outwit opposition.
