What you will learn:

Famous entrepreneurs like Steve Jobs and Elon Musk have become the case studies for nearly every…single…organization looking to motivate their employees towards greater innovation. This course takes a different approach. Your employees will learn invaluable lessons for the workplace based on the experiences and philosophies of visionary artists who were disrupters in their creative field and changed the face of art. These painters, writers, comics, rappers, and others often overcame rejection, criticism, and downright dismissal of their ideas—until they were finally accepted and celebrated. From Ernest Hemingway to Frank Lloyd Wright to Beyoncé to Lin-Manuel Miranda to Phoebe-Waller-Bridge to so many others, game-changing artists are the new go-to figures for fanning the entrepreneurial flame within organizations.
