Jim Collins – Kicks off Day 3 at SHRM 2012

I always have enjoyed listening to Jim Collins — and reading his books (I know I’m not the only one who has “Good to Great” in their list of all time favorite books)


Collins talked about a lot about the stuff he’s chatted about in his talks before — but there was one theme that I really took away this time. Creativity is natural, discipline is learned. Everyone is creative.”If you breathe, you are creative.” Collins uses the example of a 5 year old and asks, “Did anyone have to teach you to be creative?” But then countered — “… but how disciplined were you at 5?”

So the question is: How do you marry discipline to creativity?
