Joerg Reckhenrich, our faculty member for innovation and creativity management is both committed in art and management: he is an artist and director of the Berlin-based consultancy ‘Strategic Creativity Zurich’ and adjunct professor at the Antwerp Management School. With his profound experience, Joerg has facilitated workshops on creativity and innovation as part of executive education programs at various business schools, including IMD.
In this article (Joerg is co-author) about coaching, the authors focus on the immense pressure of both companies and institutions which strive for innovation.
The authors reflect how coaching today relies on experiences from the arts as we suspect the artist to be a role model for many things: leadership personalities, force of innovation, creativity and stratification of perspectives.
How art and coaching do interact is explained in the article, which I would like to share with you.
