    The Poet's Keys - The Artist's Guide to Unlocking Innovation

    The last few years have been a merciless reminder to businesses that complacency will ruin us. Our competition is ferocious, customers expect more from us than ever, and the world is constantly one disruption away from shaking the very foundations of our successes to their bones. The truth is that we now have to live on the razor’s edge to even stand a chance of not being left in the dust. And yet, despite the challenges that these cataclysmic changes pose, McKinsey has found that only 6% of leaders feel fully tapped into their teams’ potential to nurture original thinkers who take an active role in authoring the future of their businesses.

    After spending a decade alongside world-class innovators at institutions like Stanford and Google, Tucker Bryant has discovered an unexpected perspective professionals can adopt to confront the future with confidence: the outlook of a poet. As a nationally renowned poet, Tucker has identified five powerful tools poets have relied on for millennia to unshackle themselves from their comfort zones and innovate through language - tools that offer business leaders the expanded perspective we need to weather our murkiest tomorrows.
