Synopsis: How can you tap into your team?s creativity to tackle today?s toughest business challenges?

In The Firefly Effect, Kimberly Douglas presents inspiring yet pragmatic insights into getting your entire team firing on all cylinders and aiming in the right direction. Comparing the difficult act of harnessing and capturing creativity to the act of catching fireflies on a summer night, she will explain:

  • What to do when the fireflies don?t show up (or when creativity dries up)
  • How to know when it?s time to find a new meadow (or a new approach, place or process)
  • What to do if the leader is keeping too tight a lid on the jar (and team innovation is gasping for air)
  • How to get inventive when it rains on your firefly hunt (or parade of ideas)
  • What happens when everyone is too busy to join in (and group problems remain unresolved)

From the Back Cover: Praise for the Firefly Effect

"Insightful, fun, and transformative, Kimberly Douglas weaves practice and analogy into chapters that will spark the creativity of individuals, leaders, teams, and their organizations!" -Marshall Goldsmith NYT and WSJ #1 bestselling author of What Got You Here Won't Get You There

"The Firefly Effect brings it all together. For seasoned leaders to emerging leaders, Kimberly Douglas outlines the tools, processes, and methods?along with the rationale to know which to apply and when. The Firefly Effect is the first book that simplifies the complexity of team dynamics and exposes the fun of creating great teams." -Haven Riviere Vice President, Marketing Operations, The Coca-Cola Company

"In this fast-paced and very readable book, Kimberly Douglas, herself a successful entrepreneur and valued consultant to numerous nimble and effective companies and their high-achieving executives, shares the lessons that propelled her remarkable accomplishments and that will motivate and assist each reader!" -David A. Jones Sr. Cofounder and Chairman Emeritus, Humana Inc.
