Creative chaos have it hard!
In fact, creative people, lateral thinkers, and chaotic people often have a hard time in our standardized, rational world of work. Yet it is just unconventional talents such as flexibility, empathy and inventiveness that are becoming increasingly important in business and society.
In her new book, Cordula Nussbaum shows how creative chaos can use her strengths in career-oriented ways. What do you have to bring when you want to make a successful career? Adaptability, rational thinking, straightforward CV, so the usual idea. Unfortunately!
Creative cross-thinkers sunk in lower floors
Because this leads to visionary lateral thinkers and creative strangers who have unconventional talents and meandering backgrounds, often on the lower floors sanded. Tragic for the sufferers who can not live up to their talents, and a big loss for Companybecause they absolutely need ideas and visionaries in their decision-making days today.
Because odd career paths become more and more important in a constantly changing society, as futurologist Matthias Horx realized: "Do you know what your profession is called in 15 years? If so, this will be a bad sign for a successful career in the future. "And Gunther Dueck also stated this on his re: publica talk.
Colorful birds do not know their potential
However, a big problem is that many of the creative thieves do not even know their abilities - and can not sell them at all. For this reason, I run the database Beruf-Suchen.de, for example, in which people with pronounced biased CVs have their say that shows, for example, that you can be successful even without a formal vocational training - assuming appropriate personal initiative.
And now this important book by Cordula Nussbaum: It shows the creative chaotic, so the "out-of-the-box thinkers" in our work, what extraordinary talents they have and how they can use them for their careers.
How is the book structured?
The book contains many self-checks, examples and practice tips, with which Querdenker can better learn their personal strengths and abilities. They gain clarity about how they really want to live and work, and how they can also make a successful career as a creative freeman.
Nussbaum motivates creative chaos to stand up to their unconventional lifestyle and work style and not to be discouraged if they are smiled at first instead of being promoted or stopped. The author shows how to sell creative and chaotic talents and convince customers, employers and bosses with it.
Innovation and flexibility are becoming increasingly important
Because one thing is clear: Innovation and flexibility are becoming more and more important in the globalized economy and thus the strengths of the "colorful birds" such as inventiveness, empathy and visions are more and more in demand.
The author writes, by the way, from her own experience, what makes the book really good. For Nussbaum, since 1991 as a journalist and since 2001 as a trainer on the road, first made an apprenticeship as an industrial saleswoman at Siemens, then studied communication science, psychology and economic geography in Münschen and later Journalism in Paris.
