“Creative Code: The Seven Keys to Personal and Professional Creativity” translated into Korean!

The bestseller written by Prof. Dr. Oliver Gassmann and Prof. Dr. Sascha Friesike has been published in Korean! We all carry the creative code within us, but we neglect our creativity too often. In the course of our childhood, our youth and even in adulthood, it is suppressed by the most diverse constraints until it has completely disappeared. But those who do not try to be creative and develop new solutions run the risk of becoming a problem themselves. Gassmann’s and Friesike’s creative code can be reduced to seven basic characteristics, each representing its own character: the artist, the rebel, the enthusiast, the ascetic, the dreamer, the imitator and the virtuoso. If we unite all seven qualities, then we are CREATIVE! This book shows – very vividly and entertainingly – what these characters are and how the reader himself can decipher them.
