In his instant self-help classic, the international best seller How to Think Like Leonardo da Vinci, Michael J. Gelb identified seven aspects of da Vinci's genius that contemporary readers can emulate and apply in their own lives. Now, in Work Like da Vinci, Gelb adapts these principles to the specific demands of the workplace, sharing the innovative solutions to contemporary corporate and career challenges that have kept him in constant demand as a top-tier speaker and consultant to Fortune 500 clients. In Gelb's expert perspective, da Vinci's genius can be distilled into seven principles for the business listener:

Ask the right questions (Curiosita)
Put your answers to work (Dimostrazione)
Develop your business senses (Sensazione)
Turn uncertainty into opportunity (Sfumato)
Strike a profitable balance (Arte/Scienza)
Integrate for success (Corporalita)
Make the break-through connection (Connessione) These principles will help you tackle such timeless business challenges as: leadership; innovation; teamwork; strategic planning; decision-making; managing change and uncertainty; giving powerful presentations; giving and receiving feedback; and more.

Great enthusiasm and passion for Da Vinci's ideas and principles in this audio. Gelb is infectious and I wholeheartedly recommend this audio together with Gelb's book 'How to think like Leaonardo Da Vinci'. Through the audio and books we can access more of our innate genius.

Motivational and Fun

I bought this book knowing I'm a little quirky and enjoy challenging my way of thinking and working. I never expected this to be so interesting to listen too!

For me, this is one of those books I know I'll listen to over and over and recommend to friends.

After listening to the book a couple of times:
1. I started listening to different music while I work (Mozart) as Da Vinci did.
2. I have been keeping a notepad with me to write all thoughts, complete or incomplete in, and I'm already really valuing it highly.
3. I have started mind-mapping again.
4. Taken time out of my day to be more mindful and aware of my surrounding
5. Seeing the connections between much of God's wonderful nature and other things pertaining to life.

It won't change your life dramatically but for me it has definitely helped to set it on a healthy and richer course.
