Herding tigers : be the leader that creative people need (book)
Author: Todd Henry
New managers in creative fields got the job because they were good at being makers - and learned to strategise their time, relationships, and mindset to produce the best creative work possible on their own. But when they're put in charge, the rules change, and they must unlearn their hard-won working habits in favour of new ones, and navigate a minefield of complex relational dynamics with colleagues and bosses. Successful leaders of creative teams have mastered the difficult transition from doing the work to leading the work, and this book shows how. This is a handbook of on-the-ground, tactical advice for new managers of creatives. The author draws from interviews with brilliant leaders and his experience consulting in creative organisations to share a wealth of practical advice.
