Leaders in business and art stand to gain a great deal by listening to each other. In this book thirteen research-based cases demonstrate how software programmers and art curators, financial analysts and orchestra conductors, construction engineers and chefs, share aesthetic leadership talents that hold the key to transforming the ordinary into the extraordinary. Each chapter explores aesthetic leadership in a different setting and profession illuminating its universal capacity to create an economy mindful of human needs and desires. By focusing passion, playfulness, improvisation, intuitive judgement, beauty, and sensuality beyond deadlocking dualisms, this new type of leadership opens up a third aesthetic way contributing quality, meaning and value to projects and enterprises.
