My growing fascination of the role of leadership in inspiring the creativity that leads to innovation has led me to create a new blog, Play to Lead. I imagine this new space as an outlet for my many questions on the changing role of leadership in an ever changing world. Specifically, I want to explore how playfulness, creativity and imagination are deeply ingrained in all of us yet often so easily muted by poor leadership and stagnant organizational culture. I hope to challenge traditional notions of leadership and inspire a new definition: one that emphasizes the responsibility to inspire creativity and activate the imagination.
I will continue to maintain “Specimen Life” for more personal posts and I invite you to maintain your subscription. And, if you are interested in joining me in, and contributing to, an exploration of playfulness and leadership and how they combine to create the conditions for innovation, please come to Play to Lead, subscribe to the new blog and join the conversation.
