Overview

Why is creativity so often pushed to the front of the auditorium yet to the back of the classroom? This question can validly be asked across a wide swath of society, from relationships to careers. People seem ever reluctant to break out of the accepted norm (or perhaps more accurately, the accepted mold) to explore fresh alternatives and perspectives. Yet when applied with integrity and respect, creativity can open up a wide range of possibilities and opportunities. Ask questions. Be curious. Engage the classroom. Innovate. Take that well-considered risk. The enabling resources are rarely far behind.

Better to Speak of It focuses on core management and personal values in collaboration with Clive Gillinson, executive and artistic director of Carnegie Hall. The book offers specific, first-hand experiences from the leaders of key nonprofit, corporate, educational and cultural institutions, including the NYC Department of Education, Museum of Modern Art, New York Public Library and Juilliard, and major performing artists such as Joyce DiDonato, Anne-Sophie Mutter, Jessye Norman and Michael Tilson Thomas. It also examines pervasive management practices that can all too easily lead to stagnation and failure, particularly relevant in times like these when whim often leads to decree.
