Overview

Innovation is the hot new skill, and people with creative intelligence are the crown jewels of the workplace. We all have creative intelligence and the seven types of intelligence that feed it. Women are especially advantaged with emotional intelligence, sensory intelligence, and intuitive intelligence. While society encourages rational intelligence, especially in men, women can learn to excel in this area as well.

The Innovative Woman shows how to break out of limiting boundaries and habit patterns, enjoying the risk of exploring new paths to achievement and success, and finding your niche in the New Economy. You'll learn how to boost each of your seven intelligences and how to apply them so you can create new opportunities, solve thorny problems, engage in creative collaborations and negotiations, develop future scenarios, and thrive on paradigm shifts.

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.
