Abstract (Summary)

This thesis is an autoethnographic study, which found evidence that when a leader in a non-profit setting actively engages in creative practice for 30 days, there is a direct positive effect on work and, by extension, life. Key research findings included that the subject experienced a daily feeling of success, achievement, and accomplishment; the creative practice generated a mindset of discovery, curiosity and open-mindedness; the subject experienced a feeling of accomplishment; and the practice led to a greater level of vulnerability and emotional access that manifested in both professional and personal contexts.
