BOOK REVIEW: Rethink Creativity
by Monica H. Kang
ABOUT THE BOOK (from Amazon):
Innovation is not born from fancy slogans, being artistic, or taking risks all the time. It’s born out of people. People who dare to ask questions, try something different, are curious about the difference, and courageously face changes. Everyone is creative. But only a company that fully believes in that, fosters an inclusive, safe environment, and allows diverse voices to exist will be able to unlock his or her company’s creative potential.
So where do you start to rethink creativity? Two places: Invest in your team members as a leader and invest in yourself as an innovator. Monica H. Kang, the creativity workplace expert and Founder & CEO of InnovatorsBox®, shares that the commonalities are your mindset and intention. How determined are you to live your best creative life? How much do you really want to unlock your team’s best talent potential? The possibilities are limitless if you choose to invest in it.
To reflect on the immense changes in the world since the original publication of Rethink Creativity™, Kang shares more stories, strategies, and thought-provoking questions in this revised second edition that you could use to change your routine and how you lead your team.

The first thing that stands out about Rethink Creativity by Monica H. Kang is the interior formatting. It’s unique and beautiful, which is very fitting for a book about creativity!
I enjoyed this book, but I had a hard time getting myself to sit down and write a review for it. I think that’s because while I do think the author inspires us create space for creativity in the workplace, I didn’t have any solid takeaways after reading the book. Maybe that was just me, though.
I do think it’s important to read books like this from time to time to remind ourselves to make time for learning. If we really want to grow personally and in our careers, we need to have a mindset of continuous learning.
