The whole question of creativity in the workplace begs the question of appropriateness to the corporate culture. How can we be truly creative in a workplace that subverts and denies our fundamental human nature? The English poet, David White, has written a wonderful book that addresses this more fundamental question, and in so doing, opens up an entirely new realm for discussion; what might be called Corporate Poetics. The book's subtitle, Poetry>and the Preservation of the Soul in Corporate America, seems daunting, but Mr. Whyte engages the corporate/human dilema by calling on legend and poetry, both classic and modern, to confront the issue head-on. That issue? How do we engage the full human being in the workplace, body-mind-spirit. And if it cannot be engaged, how can we acknowledge and preserve the soul safely. More than just a management how-to text, this is a small treasure of healing wisdom. The paperback edition contains questions for discussion which facilitators will find helpful in directing discussion.
