Put eloquently by fellow author Margaret J. Wheatley, this book is a must read because “it opens us to the treasures of our great human capacity for creativity”. A widely applicable book, this book can help both in one’s career and everyday life. Benjamin Zander, the Boston Philharmonic conductor, and Rosamund Zander, therapist and painter, tell the story of how managers and leaders can learn important lessons from the arts that they can then use in any aspect of their work. In today’s business environment, success for an organization comes from their ability to invent and innovate. Through this book, leaders “can overcome limiting assumptions about what is possible – to reinvent obstacles that appear to be holding them back – whether a difficult customer, a competitor’s product, or the defection of a talented employee – into new pathways for possiblity”. The product of cutting edge psychology and symphony orchestra, The Art of Possibility offers a guide to creativity in all human endeavors.
