Description - Career Creativity by Maury A. Peiperl
Creativity in the face of both adversity and opportunity is the hallmark of career success. The premise of this book is that careers and creativity are broadly connected, both at the level of the individual and at the level of the larger institutions of work and society. Careers are both creative endeavours themselves, and introduce creativity into the wider employment system. By exploring models of creativity and career, and linking them with examples from a diverse array of professions, countries, and industries, this volume provides an in-depth look at contemporary careers.
