Be inspired

An article in this week’s leadership lab column in the Globe and Mail talks about how inspiration is imperative for developing new ideas, and how important it is to take the time to be inspired. The author talks about meeting new people and putting yourself in different situations to seek out inspiration, both great ideas.

Another way to be inspired is to pick up a book on a new topic… maybe learn something new about a start-up company that hit it big and changed the world as we knew it, or how the brain responds to colours and other stimuli, or pick up some inspiring hints from someone who has amazing presentation skills to share.

Here are some new titles in the library for inspiration…
