Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Creativity is defined here as "coming up with new ideas," and innovation is defined as "putting new ideas into practice in ways that add value." This work encourages the development of innovative skills in women in business, focusing on skills such as creative collaboration, adaptation, flexibility, and problem solving. There are abundant activities and self-awareness questions for enhancing each of seven different types of intelligences: basic intelligence, motivational drive, and emotional, associative, rational, sensory, and intuitive intelligence. Concluding material shows how to use innovative skills in the workplace and how to ignite change in corporate cultures. Carr-Ruffino teaches management at San Francisco State University.

    This book was completely useless for me as a Manager. It has nothing to offer to women who work in the 'real world'. The workplace is definitely a place where creativity needs to flourish, but the outlandish and ridiculous ideas in this book will get you fired. Example: the author suggests setting up a humor room with toys, games and funny videos to spark creativity. That's fine, if you work on the set of a comedy show. The text is confusing, difficult to follow and absolutely useless. The author goes so far as to list characteristics of subcultures: European Amercian women, European American men, African-Americans, who 'typically take the bull by the horns and confront the issue directly. They go straight to the person, tell it like it is'. Is this all African-Americans? or just the ones she's met? How can you generalize an entire segment of people and say this the way they all deal with problems? It sets the tone that all African Americans want confrontation. UTTER FOOLISHNESS!. She characterizes Asian Americans as 'very indirect about expressing criticism or disagreeing'. Latino Americans are described as unamibitions and not as productive as European Americans. This book is awful.I am very angry that I purchased this book at a leadership seminar. I feel I was duped. I would not recommend this book to anyone.
