On Tuesday, Sept. 24, Byrd's Books will host Kathryn P. Haydon, author of he Non-Obvious Guide to Being More Creative, from 7-8:30 p.m. Haydon will conduct a special workshop and talk about her tap-your-creativity book, answering such questions as: Why do some people seem more creative, and how can you be one of them? How can you have a continuous flow of actionable new ideas at work? What does it take to think differently when you are surrounded by people who don't?
"Your ability to be creative under pressure is what separates you from the pack," writes Todd Henry, author of The Accidental Creative. "This book is full of practical tools and tips to help you unleash your creative brilliance," he says of Haydon's book.
Haydon's guidebook, published as an edition of the Non-Obvious Guide Series, "an irreverent collection of business advice from real experts," is filled with useful, immediately actionable advice for applying your best thinking at work. The event is free to the public. To register, click here.
