Redesigning Leadership based on 0 ratings. 2 reviews.
Designer, artist, writer, engineer, scientist, academic and computer scientist John Maeda is a thought leader and Renaissance man who has lectured at the Technology, Entertainment and Design (TED) conference. His elegant and insightful book, "Laws of Simplicity", is an influential bestseller, and Esquire magazine named him one of the 21st century's most important people. He is a National Design Award winner and president of the Rhode Island School of Design (RISD). Maeda is an unconventional thinker who looks at matters differently - and acts accordingly. getAbstract recommends this enjoyable, provocative read to anyone who wants a refreshing take on, and insightful perceptions into, the demanding universe of leadership.
This book is as much about leadership as it is about the author: direct, ego-less, modern and innovative. I find the topic and the lessons shared within it the hallmark of the way leadership needs to go: abandoning boardrooms for coffee shops, suits for shirt and slacks, conformity for collaboration. I plan to buy a copy as a hardcover (I bought it as an e-book) to share.
