DOING THE WORK AND LEADING THE WORK ARE DIFFERENT THINGS.

The old adage that leading creative people is like herding cats is wrong. It’s more like herding tigers.

Doing the work and leading the work are very different things. When you make the transition from maker to manager, you give ownership of projects to your team even though you could do them yourself better and faster. You’re juggling expectations from your manager, who wants consistent, predictable output from an inherently unpredictable creative process. And you’re managing the pushback from your team of brilliant, headstrong, and possibly overqualified creatives.

Leading talented, creative people requires a different skill set than the one many management books offer. As a consultant to creative companies, Todd Henry knows firsthand what prevents creative leaders from guiding their teams to success, and in Herding Tigers he provides a bold new blueprint to help you be the leader your team needs. Learn to lead by influence instead of control. Discover how to create a stable culture that empowers your team to take bold creative risks. And learn how to fight to protect the time, energy, and resources they need to do their best work.

Full of stories and practical advice, Herding Tigers will give you the confidence and the skills to foster an environment where clients, management, and employees have a product they can be proud of and a process that works.

"If clickbait leadership tips haven't worked for you yet (insider's tip: they never will), then this is the book for you. Here's the thoughtful, tested and enjoyable blueprint for how to actually lead lead smart, creative, talented people."
Michael Bungay Stanier
Author, The Coaching Habit
"Herding Tigers is essential to anyone who wants to learn how to tackle the juggling act that is creative leadership with grace. Todd Henry's wisdom will help you bring out your team's best work."
Dorie Clark
Author, The Long Game
"In a world where nobody alone can possibly be as creative as everybody together, the work of leadership is about what you unleash, not what you control. Todd Henry has produced a manifesto for a new era of leadership and a manual to help leaders unleash the best in their colleagues."
William C. Taylor
Co-founder, Fast Company
