After publishing his memoir about caring for Holocaust survivor Maria Altmann during the last three years of her life, actor Gregor Collins thought that was the end of the story. Little did he know, losing Maria and sharing her with the world through his book was just the beginning. The Accidental Caregiver, Part 2 chronicles a new journey, one that Collins embarked on just as accidentally as he did the first. With his unplanned sequel, he shares with readers how his life was once again transformed—but this time, without Maria. With the same candor, grace, and raw vulnerability, Collins charts his course to far away lands like Australia and Mexico where he introduces Maria to other Holocaust survivors, then on a cross-country trek to New York, where he finds himself a caregiver once again, this time to Maria’s cousin Ruth, while he presents his book as a stage play to packed audiences. With each vivid new tale, Collins offers readers a fearless glimpse into his mind, which, though sometimes dark, is always honest. In the end, with Maria as his muse, Collins says yes to life and love in a way he could never have predicted—and wouldn’t have had any other way.

A practical handbook for every manager charged with leading teams to creative brilliance, from the author of The Accidental Creative and Die Empty. Doing the work and leading the work are very different things. When you make the transition from maker to manager, you give ownership of projects to your team even though you could do them yourself better and faster. You're juggling expectations from your manager, who wants consistent, predictable output from an inherently unpredictable creative process. And you're managing the pushback from your team of brilliant, headstrong, and possibly overqualified creatives. Leading talented, creative people requires a different skill set than the one many management books offer. As a consultant to creative companies, Todd Henry knows firsthand what prevents creative leaders from guiding their teams to success, and in Herding Tigers he provides a bold new blueprint to help you be the leader your team needs. Learn to lead by influence instead of control. Discover how to create a stable culture that empowers your team to take bold creative risks. And learn how to fight to protect the time, energy, and resources they need to do their best work. Full of stories and practical advice, Herding Tigers will give you the confidence and the skills to foster an environment where clients, management, and employees have a product they can be proud of and a process that works.

Too many companies limit their strategic thinking by focusing on what they already know how to do. Executives are expected to set concrete objectives and create detailed, step-by-step plans to reach them.

As a result, the business can find itself in a performance plateau that it cannot seem to break out of. In Your Creative Mind, you will discover an entirely different approach to the creative process. You will learn: How to catapult your company out of a performance plateau and into dynamic growth, expansion, and market leadership. How to move beyond classic groupthink and unleash your true creative power. How to become a trend leader and paradigm shifter by harnessing the secrets of the power of creation. How to innovate your way into the most beneficial business relationships you can imagine. Using the practical techniques and steps described in Your Creative Mind will infuse your company with creative power and drive innovation. Break free of business as usual and create the dynamic growth you deserve!

Most of us live with the stubborn idea that we'll always have tomorrow. But sooner or later all of our tomorrows will run out.

For years the research on creativity has been divided into person, process, product and press (environment) foci. However, the field is now much more extensive and diverse than it was when this scheme was proposed, and these four categories no longer catpure its essence. ""The Creativity Research Handbook"" shows how extensive and diverse the field has become. ""The Handbook"" contains extensive reviews and is intended to provide a comprehensive review of creativity research, first by the breadth of coverage of the chapters and second, by the depth and coverage within each chapter. ""The Handbook"" is divided into two parts, the first disciplinary and the second topical. The approach is a comprehensive one - authors do not focus on their own models or theories but instead give complete overviews. The disciplinary structure allows a more sensitive and accurate placement of research. The disciplinary framework also facilitates exchanges with the wider scholarly community - research on creative thinking, for example, shares assumptions with the cognitive sciences, and the disciplinary assignment can help individuals studying creativity to benefit from those sciences. Several of the contributions demonstrate how creativity research has benefited from such disciplinary connections. Part 2 contains six topical chapters; each of them focuses on one critical topic.

From the author of Die Empty and The Accidental Creative, a new framework for understanding what motivates us and why. What drives us to unleash our best work? And how do we tap into that drive to get superior results with our managers, coworkers, and direct reports? As Todd Henry reveals in this illuminating book, drawing on decades of research and interviews with over 100,000 people, the answer is not one size fits all: some people are energized by a race against the clock, while others put in extra effort only when they feel part of a team. For still others, nothing is as motivating as the possibility of public recognition. Henry shows, in fact, that there are twenty-seven "motivational themes”, each with its own unique DNA. For instance: · Those driven to Achieve Potential strive to build an ideal future, even when others may not see as far ahead. · Those needing to Overcome must conquer whatever obstacles come their way, no matter how difficult or time-consuming. · Those who strive to Comprehend and Express are obsessed with mastering new skills and showing off what they know--which is often a lot. · Those who want to Make It Right thrive when systems are running smoothly and usually know the "proper way" to do things. The Motivation Code teaches us to decode our Core Motivation so that we can have conversations, make decisions, and even choose career paths that lead us to experience engagement and fulfillment. Once we know how to activate our inner drivers, we can transform the work we do into work we love.
