Leigh Thompson dispels traditional myths about creativity in addition to offering actionable advice for breaking down the walls that tend to surround creative collaboration in Creative Conspiracy. Thompson displays ways that leaders can pick the correct people for specific creative groups, give examples of how to lead and inspire these teams, in addition to outlining tactics that help during the inevitable conflicts of the idea generation phase during a team exercise. Creative teams are often the most misunderstood and then upstaged by managers and leaders who do not provide the necessary tools required to accomplish their task. Team membership should be fluid as new members promote creativity. Thompson lays out evidence-based theories in an effort to help confused leaders and managers not only lead better, but also become better human beings.
