I do like this article because in my opinion this is exactly how I see creativity. The main thing that comes out from the video is the way to integrate creativity in people's everyday life, through the environment in which they are living. I like the idea of the term “disruptive realism” because it is for me the perfect way to catch people attention and to make them think about the message you want to deliver. We are living in a new era with new way to express and to create and what the video shows is the modernity of the creativity. Banksy in my opinion represents the perfect example of creativity thanks to his work that creates a real break between our original way of thinking, of perception and the new world we are living in. I’d like to think that these disruptions will lead us to many other experiences and different perception of our environment.

This video found an echo inside me and I wish people would teach you this at school. Indeed, that’s exactly what I am thinking about when talking about creativity. When I see advertising, innovative design in the streets, in malls or wherever which focus on “being different, original and fun” I just tell myself: “they got it!” And that’s what any company would want to be. Thinking out of the box, being the difference that matters, and making people smile. <br>Just as Steve Jobs put it: “Think different”. But think different does not mean being an outcast who doesn’t like to be like the others. It means that you should never take anything for granted, not even what you think you know, most of all not what you think you know! Because to me, a good leader is also someone who has as a mantra Socrate’s quote : “I know one thing: that I know nothing”. This leader is curious, eager to learn everything and he knows learning can come from everywhere, everybody. By always putting yourself and what you know into question, you avoid to get stuck in one way of thinking, as often seen. People are often stuck in a vision of the world somebody, a culture, traditions, taught them. This is a perfect way to remind them that there are always different types of perspective. <br>Staying curious is the first step to be creative. And by experimenting new approaches, “disruptive realism”, innovative design and so on, you are offering people new filters of perception they would have never thought about.

The fact that he did not simply chose an existing model, but merged them into a new one, shows some real out-of-the-box thinking.
Clemence Ythier's comment, February 13, 5:02 PM
This article is very coherent to me.<br>I think a great creative leader is not someone who try to imitate others to succeed.<br>The author is right when he says that to succeed , we must first study the existing ideas , then keep the best and finally , with this synthesis, create a more innovative and completely revolutionary idea.<br>Whoever thinks that way is already a leader.<br>it is true that a leader must be very innovative , and it is not given to everyone , but the discipline is also important.<br>Before being a business school student , I studied a master of law, and even if we don’t develop all his creative side at the university unfortunately, my previous studies have allowed me to have a very synthetic vision in things.<br>So I hope with this double diploma i’ll have a mind both synthetic and creative in order to work in marketing and be a good creative leader.
Antoine Heritier's comment, February 16, 6:54 AM
I've chosen this article because of the title. The word thinking is really important for entrepreneurship. People link entrepreneurship with action but before that it's all about thinking. It was really interesting to understand another way of thinking: integrative thinking. It was the first time I heard about that and i understand the concept. I like the idea to think globalized, to understand a problem by having a full picture of it, even by having two opposite ideas. This is the best way to generate new ideas. Some people stay stuck in a way of thinking that is given to them, and they can't create something new but just adapte something already existing or improve something. The concept of entrepreneurship is to Create ! Integrative thinkers analyse the whole problem, not only the obvious part. They understand in a globalized way and so generate ideas. <br>I think this way of seeing things and this way of thinking are useful to run a business, to work for a company, to live in society, to understand politics, and so on. This is a tool that can help people for everything.

Another great article. I think it can be completed with 'The Killer Idea' by Nicolas Bordas. The problematic here is always the same. To be a great leader and promoting creativity, it is about having the passion to transform that vision into action.
Jarno Mollema's comment, February 19, 2013 1:58 PM
The fact that you need to posess 8 key tenets to be a creative leader stresses why creative leaders are so rare. Commenting on the author's closing sentence; I think creative leaders are leaders which tend to have a quick and suitable responses to newly arised situations. They tend to be innovative on the long-term and show that they can adapt to a constantly chaning environment.
Students Elective Course's comment, February 19, 2013 11:11 PM
I liked this article but I think that we should have tried to find these creative leaders a few years before and not unfortunately during the economic crisis. Of course, we couldn't tell how the future will be, but as for me, these criteria are so tremendous that we need them every time. As it is really hard to get all this elements into one personality, why creating a kind of chair of creativity in each firm ?

I found this article very interesting. Indeed, along with 'Why Are Creative Leaders So Rare?' by Navi Radjou, this topic really deals with the problematics I must face everyday working in the advertising world. Being a good leader while letting the creativity be is quite difficult because usually management is considered a brake to creativity.
Jarno Mollema's comment, February 19, 2013 2:00 PM
Being creative and showing leadership does often not go easily together. To be able to connect these two in the proper way, asks for (with a wink)... 'creativeness'.
GIL Da Cruz Teodosio Marques's comment, February 12, 2:48 PM
Great article! First of all because it destroys the cliché that puts forward the idea that soldier are not the smartest people around. Not saying they are the smartest though but I would like to point out the fact that most of the major discoveries and innovations of the past century have been found to help the army and only after some years they were used for civilians. Although, I would like to point out the fact that soldiers nowadays spend most of their carriers training so they have plenty of time to think about all the possibilities and therefore to create new training. But I’m not sure it’s comparable to a company and that because of several reasons: <br>first of all I would like to say that most of the time people in companies don’t have time for that, right now I’m doing an internship in a bank and when I see how much work is expected from us and how many hours people spend at their job it’s almost impossible for them to “train”. And it’s sad because if they tried, maybe they would find ways to ease their work amount, but believe me: most of them are already mentally drained by all the efforts they put in their job in order to reach the goals that have been set. So I don’t know, maybe hiring new staff would be a solution in order to reduce work and therefore inducing reflection amongst the team. <br>Second point I would like to mention is that people that will work in companies in the next few years are us, the ones that decided to choose this elective course, the ones that decided to go and study in Skema business school. Before Skema I was at univ in law management and economics. And I have to say that business schools and univs, in France at least, don’t help us with creative thinking. Most of the time students leave school with massive load of knowledge that they are able to spit by heart and yet most of the time not able to understand. I feel like students are formatted. So of course when they get in a company all they do is follow the road that has been drawn years and years before by previous formatted people. I think it’s a European problem: as I stated in my presentation last semester I was lucky enough to study in McGill University and classes there are totally different. The course content is online for students to study and in class the teachers and students discuss about the content; they are able to express their thoughts, their ideas and everybody participates because classes are not mandatory.<br>So for me it’s not weird to see that most of the great company leaders that think outside of the box actually come from the u.s. and I do believe that education and the way we teach is something we should focus on because we are formatting people and once you get inside that type of box it’s really hard to get out of it.<br>Ps: sorry for the extra long post…<br>
