Addressing the Biggest (Baddest) and Best Ideas Ever: Through the Lens of Humility
Sowcik, Matthew J.; Andenoro, Anthony C.; Council, Austin
Journal of Leadership Education, v16 n4 p164-179 Oct 2017
Now and into the foreseeable future, both effective leadership and creativity are going to be important when addressing complex problems. The connection between effective leadership and creativity will be critical as leaders look to turn big ideas into innovative solutions. However, it seems that there is often a disconnect between the two constructs of creativity and effective leadership. The article draws upon scholarly research within the field to address this gap and better understand the power of humility to mitigate this disconnect. The goal of this article is to encourage the field of Leadership Education to look inward into how we as a community are creating an environment where creative leaders can be developed.
