Understand the Nature of Creativity — and Success

January 21, 2016

There’s an irony in trying to get people to do their best work—but particularly to try new things and to innovate—in that very often the kind of characteristics that are common to someone who will have a good new idea have no overlap with the characteristics that are common to someone who’s really good at presenting in meetings. So it’s kind of like the difference between like sales and R&D, right? So the people that are in your sales or marketing division in a company are very different kinds of person than the people you have in R&D or something else like that.
