What do Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, Leonardo da Vinci, and Ray Kroc, the man who created the McDonald's franchise enterprise, have in common? They have all mastered the skills of creative genius-essential tools in today's business climate.

Having researched the lives and techniques of past and present geniuses for this inspiring and provocative new handbook, Annette Moser-Wellman helps workers at all levels build and refine their working styles. These qualities of creativity-drawn from the the realms of art, science, as well as business-make up the five distinct "faces":

  • Seer-the power to image
  • Observer-the power to notice details
  • Alchemist-the power to make connections
  • Fool-the power to celebrate weakness
  • Sage-the power to simplify


    Moser-Wellman shows how we can utilize these creative thinking strategies and flourish in the workplace.
