WARRIOR of Gratitude


We all know something about creativity and yet much of the universal beliefs surrounding creativity may, in fact, be myths.  Today, our guest is debunking some commonly held beliefs that will surprise you! We’re exposing The Myths of Creativity with David Burkus.

David focuses on filling the gap between what science knows and what we most often do. In his latest book, The Myths of Creativity: The Truth About How Innovative Companies and People Generate Great Ideas is an eye-opening read that will have you rethinking what you know about the creative process. David also writes regularly for Harvard Business Review, Forbes, 99U and PsychologyToday.

He has delivered keynote speeches at Microsoft, SXSW and TEDx and is an associate professor of management at Oral Roberts University. David also is the host of Leader Lab, a podcast that shares insights on his passions: leadership, innovation, and strategy.
