"The most resilient companies and institutions of today are not machines, they are wonderfully complex organisms. They require intentional leadership and thoughtful nurturing. 'Chief Decision Maker' no longer cuts it. Instead, a new kind of leader is emerging whose attributes are energetically described in Rise of the DEO. Here is an inspirational and accessible code-base for effective leadership in the 21st century." --Tim Brown, CEO IDEO
"Rise of the DEO identifies a new generation of leaders who combine traits we typically think of as opposites. They are analytic and creative. They are rule breakers and system thinkers. These are the men and women who will change our world for the better."--Chip Conley, Founder of Joie de Vivre Hospitality and author of PEAK
"Our cities need leaders driven by dreams and data. Rise of the DEO shows us who these leaders are and how we can create more of them." --Jay Nath, Chief Innovation Officer, San Francisco Mayor's Office
"Rise of the DEO goes beyond the traditional principles of leadership to the fresh and nuanced world of intuition, social intelligence and compelling messaging - the place where leaders increasingly find breakthroughs that engage contemporary talent and organizations. I've added this book to my toolkit and started introducing its suggestions into a range of coaching, talent management and organization effectiveness activities." - Joe Herold, Senior Vice President, Human Resources, Rentech, Inc
About the Author
Innovator, artist, protagonist, and positive provocateur, Maria has pursued a vision of intelligent, elegant, people-centered design throughout her professional life. Her grasp of the pragmatic, the authentic, and the essential have kept her at the forefront of design and business for over 20 years. Under Maria's leadership, Hot Studio, the experience design firm she founded in 1997, grew into a full-service creative agency with an impressive list of Fortune 500 clients. In March 2013, Facebook acquired the talent behind Hot Studio in one of their largest "acqui-hires" to date, where Maria now works as Director of Product Design. She has spoken at conferences all over the world and co-teaches a Business and Design course at the California College of the Arts with Christopher Ireland.
Researcher, strategist, idea generator and alliance builder, Christopher started her career with the notion that businesses could benefit from a better understanding of people and culture. Her ability to create simple explanations of complex human behavior and to translate those insights into effective design and development strategies attracted a wide range of clients including Microsoft, HP, Pepsi, Levis, Gap and more. As a co-founder and CEO of Cheskin, a firm that pioneered design research in Silicon Valley, Christopher had a ring-side seat to unrivaled feats of creation, innovation and reinvention.

That approach makes this book as accessible and meaningful to someone in a leadership role as it does to an inventor, sales person, manager or graphic designer.
This book is a welcome validation and message for many of us who have been siloed by the outdated "creative ability and business acumen don't mix". I hear them saying "Embrace the power of the creative you are and step up to lead with it." Bravo!
In line with their thesis, Ms. Giudice and Ms. Ireland present a systematic and grounded but also creative and illustrative case for balanced leadership, and in doing so have identified a trend that will surely resonate with the next generation of leaders.
