|Must someone be the leader or boss in order for a creative team to function well?
Yes, I think it is very important.
Both! A leader knows when and how to guide a team, provide encouragement and set the strategy. A boss or manager knows when to push the team, set direction and make decisions.
Hummmm ..... i'm not a realy boos but more a leader i think. but never a dictator !
In my opinion, no, but what do I know?
I believe teamwork is there to help make it easier so if a team is well assembled, it works period. If it is a team of all creative people, each one would be the boss of their part of making it happen if not, there are too many cooks in the kitchen.
I have no idea. I've never been a boss or a leader except where my children were concerned when they were growing up. But I always tried to be creative in handling most of the problems that simply go with raising children. But the main thing children need is love and security and knowing you are always there for them.
I think every endeavour needs leaders. Doesn't have to be one leader. Just need people who are willing to lead, take initiative and responsibility.
9 times out of 10, the answer is "yes." The leader need not be set in stone - for instance, different team members can play different leadership roles at different times, but a group almost always needs to know who is in charge.
My experience is that leaderless teams (compared to a traditional concept of leadership) perform better that teams with a leader when there is a commitment to help each other succeed and a passion for the focus of the group. The use of "connective listening" gives an emergent quality to new ways of thinking and is always based on feedback and a desire to adapt to the changing circumstances. That is one reason COTF developed the concept of "futures generative dialogue" so that whatever evolved from the dialogue would be aligned with the context of futures thinking and action.
It's necessary to have a leader but not a boss, as such. It may be a matter of perception, but I've found people who consider themselves leaders tend to work with others, as opposed to telling others what to do and how to do it.
Yes, there has to be discipline in a creative team. Creative people are mostly famous about there chaotic workstyle. If you're alone, that won't be a problem, but for a team everything has to be in balance in order to function well. A person who can keep the team in balance and order, without lowering the creativity is a must!
No. The key word: 'TEAM'!
Not the "boss"... maybe the guide... there are many pitfalls on the path of creativity.
That implys a constant, and anything that's constant is static, it's not changing and dynamic. In general, that makes me feel like leadership limits creativity, but sometimes with guidance, people can tap into parts of themselves they weren't aware of or whatever, so I don't really know.
Some of these questions are really stupid. What is the point of this shit anyway?
A leader can be a good thing to come up with the important things and not to loose oneself in unimportant details. On the other side, the leader should not exploit his position and make the other fellows feel bad or inferior.
Only if that someone is me, otherwise no.
