Lessons for a new generation of leaders on teamwork, meetings, conversations, free food, social media, apologizing, and other topics.

When designer and computer scientist John Maeda was tapped to be president of the celebrated Rhode Island School of Design in 2008, he had to learn how to be a leader quickly. He had to transform himself from a tenured professor―with a love of argument for argument's sake and the freedom to experiment―into the head of a hierarchical organization. The professor is free to speak his mind against “the man.” The college president is “the man.” Maeda has had to teach himself, through trial and error, about leadership. In Redesigning Leadership, he shares his learning process.

Maeda, writing as an artist and designer, a technologist, and a professor, discusses intuition and risk-taking, “transparency,” and all the things that a conversation can do that an email can't. In his transition from MIT to RISD he finds that the most effective way to pull people together is not social networking but free food. Leading a team? The best way for a leader to leverage the collective power of a team is to reveal his or her own humanity.

Asked if he has stopped designing, Maeda replied (via Twitter) “I'm designing how to talk about/with/for our #RISD community.” Maeda's creative nature makes him a different sort of leader―one who prizes experimentation, honest critique, and learning as you go. With Redesigning Leadership, he uses his experience to reveal a new model of leadership for the next generation of leaders.

Maeda’s Redesigning Leadership is an open, honest and inspiring book about lessons learned on his own journey of evolving from designer to leader. He relays his journey through learnings from different trials (some by fire) and victories in his own path— from MIT Media Lab to Rhode Island School of Design. He succinctly captures what it takes to apply the curiosity, creativity and grit that designers practice — yet applies it more broadly to the field of creative leadership. He provides telling examples ranging from design luminaries he’s met, to the humble determination of his own father who inspired him.

Speaking as a leader of creative teams, we sometimes feel ‘outside’ the role norms of a given business organization (or feel our colleagues might struggle to understand our unique value / perspective). Maeda correctly identifies these feelings, yet provides wit and humor I could relate to. He celebrates how design leaders must believe in the deep problem solving approaches that propelled them into roles of influence to begin with. The book ends with chapter called “Human as Leader”, which celebrates our ability to inspire others while modeling humility and gratitude.

I have recommended the book to both business leaders and designers alike. I’ve loaned it to those close to me to build understanding for “who we are” and how leadership itself is a dynamic, creative journey. Finally, It’s short enough to give to a colleagues and actually get read! I appreciate the succinctness of it, everything is edited for crispness and impact.

John is a great communicator. The book is short and simple, it talks about leading in different ways from different perspectives as a human, as a professor and others.
There are great phrases and paragraphs to re read many times because they are not only accurate but also deep.

One that made me think and I love it was,
«Learning is said to be most potent when “cognitive dissonance” ocurrs. Said more simply, we learn best when we are wrong»

Maeda, creates a unique leadership text using old school wisdom in his application to a new position as president of RISD. Maeda reflects on mistakes made along the way and remains transparent throughout the reading. The message of leadership insights is supported through humor, mentors, and common people that have had an impact on his leadership style.

Redesigning Leadership is an easy read and is recommended to that aspiring leader that wants to keep it simple. Additionally, the reader of the text finds that Maeda's message is applicable to seasoned leaders that have perhaps lost their way in this cyber age and the use of emails to communicate. The idea of interacting with subordinates is nothing new, but it appears that this skill has been replaced by the use technology. In closing, there are many reminders presented throughout the book about getting back to the basics of leadership and the mastering of serving others.

I truly hate to say this, but I was not inspired, enlightened, or impressed at all. Hearing Jon Maeda speak made me curious about this book, but unfortunately his ramblings were not particularly insightful. It opens with a note from his (co-writer?)Becky who acknowledges his unorthodox method of creating the book - he attempted to design the book before writing it - and quite frankly, it shows. The gold edging is the nicest part about it.

John Maeda is an unusually talented individual. His range is exceptional. His writing is honest, humble, and well thought out. In Redesigning Leadership he combines several of his talents and experiences and examines the impact each has had on his leadership knowledge and skills. I recommend this work to anyone who wants to explore leadership from the vantage point of someone who has been "thrown" into it and has successfully learned what works and what doesn't.

With Redesigning Leadership, John Maeda throws open the doors of his own Presidential Suite to give us a stark and honest rendition of the shakedown of his now extended, though once somewhat accidental, tour of duty as RISD's leader. This book is a valuable read for anyone wrestling with how to be accepted as a leader, either in their own heads or among those whom they propose to lead.

Maeda's hyper-multifaceted life -- he adroitly straddles the worlds of engineering and design, technology and art, Japan and the U.S., family and career -- has engendered for him a rather orthogonal perspective on much that he sees, which, while affording him a healthy measure of a non-insider's independence and objectivity, has nonetheless cast him as a bit of an eternal outsider. He draws strength from this, with admirable perseverance.

At its best, Maeda's leadership saga reminds us, among many other important lessons, that a life without struggle and challenge is boring and uninteresting and stagnant. Those of us who've "made it" to a relative pinnacle in our comfy lives -- Maeda was a tenured MIT professor before RISD -- would all do well to take a page from his book, take a calculated risk, redesign our lives, and jump headlong into our next Act.

I bought this book because it was reviewed in the publication Nature. It is a short book, at only 80 pages, and is ghost written with Becky Bermont. Those should have been warnings. The author, John Maeda, conveys some of his wisdom through tweets he has sent. I think he may have been trying to capture the same feeling in this book by keeping it short. However, I found little insight into the skills of leadership. Maeda was appointed president of the Rhode Island School of Design and uses this to discuss areas he's had problems with and how he resolved it. However, some of the insights, like "you'll come across people you don't agree with and still have to listen to them" (my paraphrase) just aren't that interesting. Likewise, some books shouldn't be written, and I think this may be one of them.
Love this concept of using Twitter with each entry or chapter.
As a school leader where we are trying to study the intersection of art and science and technology, John offered many lessons. Thank you.
