    Do you read books that will inspire you for work? I try to read a few business-like books throughout the year to keep me motivated. Cultivating a Creative Culture was just what I needed. This book was written primarily for graphic/web designers but it’s great because it really falls under any category of any business. We all must be creative to a point to be successful and problem solve within our organizations. I work in marketing and this book resonated with me so much!

We all must be creative to a point to be successful and problem solve within our organizations. I work in marketing and this book resonated with me so much! I love the chapter about letting creative people be creative! If you have good employees get out of their way. Also, the idea that it’s alright to leave the office if you need take a quick break, recharge or find inspiration. In my office everyone is strapped to a desk, so a few times a year I go on shopping days! I take the team, since we are in retail, to all kinds of stores and we simply walk the aisles to see what is new in products and packaging. It’s hard to be creative and come up with new products if you never leave your desk! If you are looking for something that is a quick read (70 pages) but will get you fired up then I highly recommend Cultivating a Creative Culture!!

    We are all trying to create a creative culture right here in our own little corner of the internet. And I’ll be honest, this little book packs a punch! The author goes into great depth on how to foster creativity in the workplace, but I found it not only relatable to work but also my blog. This book is about creative environments and the importance of empathy in leadership.

A small but mighty professional self-help book focused on helping leaders develop an environment that allows for creativity to flow and on helping individual contributors find environments that will fully develop their creativity. As a young professional, I’m always looking to improve myself and make room for growth. Understanding how to succeed, and how to help others succeed, is a pivotal skill for anyone, but particularly for managers and hopeful leaders. This is the perfect book for the busy business person who doesn’t have a lot of time to sink into self-advancement but still wants to make a difference. With actionable suggestions and a very digestible 70 pages, it packs a punch. While this book is geared more toward the management level and individual contributors with flexibility in their positions, it can also inspire traditional individual contributors to alter their environments in whatever way possible to do their best work. While Dauer is very encouraging of an open, honest, and flexible workplace, he doesn’t necessarily take into account the privilege that comes with the flexibility to “find the right cultural fit.” Quitting a job is a luxury; being picky about the culture of a company is a luxury. All of that to say, take his suggestions with a grain of salt and fit them into your life as best, or as much as, you can. I think this is a good starting place for professionals looking to think differently about their work environment or improve their leadership capabilities.

    Justin Dauer wrote a book on how to create a positive work environment where employees are happy, fueled, charged, inspired and are valued as human beings with a voice and purpose. This book is AMAZING!! I work in healthcare administration and I learned a lot on how to manage the team and value their individuality as humans to be able to provide their best work.

This book is AMAZING!! I work in healthcare administration and I learned a lot on how to manage the team and value their individuality as humans to be able to provide their best work. Though the book and the authors’ experiences revolve around designers and creative environment, his book outlines the steps needed no matter the business type. It could work in any organization big or small. I love the visual art in the book and the pictures are very creative and adds to visualizing the examples and case studies presented. The book was only 70 pages, a quick read but will be utilized as a reference and inspiration on how to welcome people in your organization starting from day 1. I love the reference to the Scandinavian concept of “Jantelagen” imported from Swedish culture egalitarianism where no one person is greater than anyone else - and humility and restraint are the overall theme that is addressed in the book. It is very simple with a human-centric viewpoint. It can be done but a shift in the paradigm of how we view and value others will foster in bringing about the best in the teams and the individuals that make up the heart and soul of any organization. I highly recommend this for anyone working in teams to inspire creativity and productivity as well as any organization that can benefit from developing a positive work environment. If you are not excited on a Sunday to start your work week, then you probably need this book! Thank you for providing a free copy of the book. All opinions expressed are mine.

    This is a great book if you are a creative entrepreneur wanting to build a culture that supports creativity in the organisation.. tips and ideas (some of them really creative) are good for small orgs.. not sure if they will be as effective for large organisations.. I loved reading the short book though..

    Justin Dauer's book is a much needed and refreshing look at supporting creatives in their roles at companies of all sizes. A wonderful book for creatives (web developers, designers, photographers, videographers and more) and really just anyone to absorb and put to use in making more effective work habits that are inspiring and satisfying, and ultimately also help makers produce great results.

    This can be applied to every business and aspect of life! I agree with the authors. Nothing is more creativity killing that someone squashing your every idea. Not allowing one to explore or grow or attend conferences or classes for inspiration. It only hurts everyone to keep people from contributing to the group. The sooner folks learn that the better off well all be.

    A good read. I have had this book on my TBR bookshelf and really upset I have not read this early. The author speaks my language and at the end of the day we simply need to treat people right and do the right thing. However, we need books like this to remind us of these simple, but powerful things because we can get lost in all the pressures of work.

    This book is a super-helpful tool for developing strategies to foster creativity in the workplace. Justin Dauer makes the compelling case that if we prioritize people and allow them to flourish, that is where truly creative work can begin.

    This is a brief book on how to engage employees and foster an office culture that values the team and cultivates creativity. While the book is focused on the author’s field of design, the tips and tidbits shared can be applied to any organization or office environment. This is a good resource for anyone looking to revamp their office culture.
