Creative leaders are lifelong learners. These curious characters are constantly asking questions and seeking new sources of inspiration. They immerse themselves in art, develop new skills both in and outside of their areas of expertise, all the while keeping an eye open for chance opportunities.
At THNK, we often talk about serendipity; that magical spark that occurs when you combine chance occurrence with acquired knowledge. Creative leaders can increase their likelihood of recognizing and experiencing a serendipitous moment by continuously consuming new information.
With that in mind, we asked a handful of THNKers what books on their nightstand have helped them grow as leaders. A couple of the suggestions are leadership classics, while others are more unconventional. What better way to seek a new source of inspiration than by branching out with a THNKer guide to books every creative leader should read?
Add these literary gems to your reading list and continue along your own lifelong learning journey.
