News & Opinion: Paper Fish/Jonathon Flaum Interview

By: 800-CEO-READ @ 5:49 PM – Filed under: Management & Workplace Culture

In this interview, I talk with Jonathon Flaum, author of How The Paper Fish Learned To Swim: A Fable About Inspiring Creativity And Bringing New Ideas to Life.

The book begins with a fable about a young origami master named Daishinji, who creates a fish so real that it comes to life. Jonathon starts the podcast by reading the fable. We then talk about innovation, approaching innovation without a goal, and the crippling effect fear has on creativity.

This is Jonathon's second visit to the Podcast Blog. He co-wrote a book last year with his father Sander called 100 Mile Walk and we talked with the both of them when the book came.
