"Thinking Clockwise, A Field Guide for the Innovative Leader" (MinneApplePress 2005) has won the 2006 Fresh Voices Award in the business category. Authored by Emmy award winning journalist and former business editor, Dennis Stauffer, Thinking Clockwise offers a uniquely powerful strategy for innovative thinking and leadership to promote innovation.

Thinking Clockwise was also recently selected as a finalist in the business category of Best Books 2005 by In it, Stauffer explores “Clockwise Thinking” a simple metaphor for a revolutionary approach to creating and implementing valuable ideas. He then builds on that foundation to explain the essential characteristics of “Innovative Leadership,” strategies and techniques that encourage growth, promote innovation, and enhance performance at all levels.
