Artistry Unleashed is about working and living at the edge of what you know and beyond. Surprise, uncertainty, ambiguity, intensity, and change are all disruptive forces that we often avoid or fear. Yet they are the essential origin of both creativity and great performance.
Imagine if you could make effective progress with no clear plan or destination in view; if you could achieve excellence without sacrificing creativity; if you could invest passion even as you apply reason and intelligence.
Learn how artistry, when allowed to escape studio walls, can help painters, CEOs, athletes, scientists, chefs, and you to achieve these powerful capabilities. Artistry Unleashed provides original and practical tools to transform what we think about artistry's role in professions, in organizations, in education, and, most importantly, in everyday life.
Artistry Unleashed reveals the unique features of artistic work in any field: enigmatic problems; qualitative intelligence; cognitive emotions; downstream and upstream learning; and your personal knowledge system.
"No one ever marveled at the 'science of leadership'; great leadership is about developing great judgment. Hilary Austen's brilliant book helped me to see that it is the 'art of leadership' that will lead in the 21st century."
