My guest today is Amy Herman, a lawyer and an art historian who uses works of art to sharpen observation, analysis, and communication skills. She developed her Art of Perception seminar in 2000. She subsequently adapted the program for a wide range of professionals and lead sessions internationally for the New York City Police Department, the FBI, the French National Police, the Department of Defense, Interpol, the State Department, Fortune 500 companies, first responders, the military, and the intelligence community.

The topic is her book Fixed.

In this episode of Trend Following Radio we discuss:

  • How art can help solve problems
  • How the pandemic caused us to take a break and pause
  • Assess, analyze, articulate and act
  • Looking at art and how it was created and the obstacles it confronted helps us become better thinkers
  • Art is inspiration
  • Her cancer diagnosis and how she was inspired
  • Is everybody creative?
