Managing Creativity – Deborah Rutter, President, John F. Kennedy Center For The Performing Arts

“You have to give up a little bit of control in that (creative) process….it is an iterative process and allowing people to be as creative and crazy as you possibly could imagine and then noticing when there was really a fantastic moment that we all had to say, ‘Ah-ha! that’s it, let’s go there.'” Deborah Rutter

As we cope with complete upheaval in our lives and work due to the coronavirus pandemic, it’s time to step back, take a breath, and find creative ways forward.  But how?

Some of us are naturally creative, others of us are managers and leaders, needing to elicit and nurture creative ideas from our teams. But how?

Listen to this enlightening and inspiring conversation between host Joan Michelson and a master at doing this: Deborah Rutter, President of The John F. Kennedy Memorial Center for The Performing Arts, the nation’s premier arts center. (This was recorded under our previous name, Green Connections Radio.)

“My special talent is, I work hard…I talk about this with my daughter all the time…I’m persistent and I work really hard. If you keep working hard, if you think about other people probably more than you think about yourself, you will have opportunities. ”
