"How to Perfect the Fine Art of Problem Solving" (Encore)
"Looking at art through Amy Herman's lens gives us a powerful new perspective to envision our problems and craft concrete solutions." -- Col. Christopher Costa, U.S. Army, (Ret.)
(Note: This interview first aired back in January.) Our guest is Amy E. Herman, who was formerly the head of education at the Frick Collection, a renowned art museum in NYC. She's now the founder and president of The Art of Perception, Inc., an organization that conducts professional development courses for leaders around the world, including staffers at the FBI, NATO, the U.S. State Department, Interpol, and elsewhere. Herman is also an attorney, and what her courses do, basically, is employ the experience of looking at art in order to train people to see things differently. Herman's book, which she tells us about, is based on her popular courses, which are about finding ways to challenge our default thinking and revealing possibilities we might've overlooked. The booked is called "Fixed." -- and it's sure to fascinate -- and benefit -- all who are willing to open their eyes and their minds.
