great design, especially functional pieces for daily life.
Businesses are in the midst of a human energy crisis that, if left unchecked, will deplete individuals, teams, and organizations of their abilities to grow and change in traditional and emerging markets.
We have achieved fantastic technical and organizational efficiency, but our creative processes have become over-engineered. Individuals are disengaging and the ideas they produce trigger incremental shifts, not transformational changes. Weâ€™re just burning out.
The good news for businesses is that there is a renewable energy source waiting to be tapped: inspiration.
