Michael Fanuele has written about the Six Skills of Inspiration in his new book, Stop Making Sense. In this episode, we speak to Michael in New York about why inspiration matters, what it can achieve, and how an individual – particularly a leader – can become more inspiring. As it turns out, it might mean turning our backs on rationality… We also touch on the role of planners, the role of agencies, his creative director role at General Mills and the balance big brands need to strike between outsourcing and in-housing, emotion and reason, and short-term and long-term goals.
