“Leadership in these complex times similarly requires an adept mix of art and science — gut instinct balanced with data-driven decision-making, creativity coupled with systems thinking. And we can look to the works — and workstyle — of this Renaissance master to glean insights on how to deftly blend art and science in our own leadership”, writes Bill Marquard.

He gleans five leadership lessons from the Renaissance master Leonardo, by exploring his painting “Ginevra de’ Benci”:

–Find unexpected connections.

–Challenge your frame.

–See through others’ experiences.

–Notice — and make use of — the patterns.

–Look around the corner.
