Chicago Innovation: The Art of Innovation

It’s not a question often considered: what could business leaders learn from artists? If the goal is to create an innovative company, then leaders need to employ a way of thinking that fosters creativity, involves all of the senses, and uses whole-brain skills in new ways. This event will explore what today’s business leaders can gain from approaching the world through the lens and empathetic perspective of an artist, one that enables us to observe our organizations, our customers and ourselves from an unfamiliar, yet powerful, position. The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Ballroom, 112 South Michigan Ave., Chicago. Thursday, January 24, 5:30 pm.
