The Enlivened Self offers a new kind of learning experience. A set of three ebooks that link together to form a coherent whole, these short volumes offer rich philosophical insight in easy-to-digest small bites. Each part invites you to carve out some space in your daily life to consider the art of growing into the creative, collaborative and compelling leader you aspire to be. Packed with deep insight, balanced with practical suggestions, and rich with media, resources and opportunities to engage, The Enlivened Self is a guidebook for all who want to become the very best version of themselves.
Jeff DeGraff’s creative and direct take on making innovation really happen have made him a world renowned thought leader and have prompted his clients and colleagues to dub him as The Dean of Innovation. Clients call Jeff when they want to achieve a cultural change that leads to sustainable innovation and growth. His unorthodox view of innovation combines theory and practice to instill the mindset needed to make innovation truly happen.
Additionally, for the past 25 years Jeff has also served as Clinical Professor of Management and Organization for the University of Michigan’s Stephen M. Ross Business school. His energetic personality and practical business experience have made his classes some of the highest rated and hardest to get into at Ross, and he enjoys discussing the changing face of innovation with the next generation.
The Enlivened Self, an ebook serial, is your chance to spend some time with Jeff, even if you can’t take a course at the University of Michigan, or crash the board room meeting at Fortune 500 company where he’s consulting. Sweeping in scope but direct in approach, these pages are a view into a creative mind at work, and an invitation to join Jeff in the art of growing.
