Is there more to creative work than the well-researched dimensions of personality, cognition, and affect that determines creative identity? Scholars are fascinated by creativity because it is the ability to create new ideas that can lead to innovations once the appropriate audiences recognise them. Yet, it is the ability to sense and comprehend aesthetic stimuli that is the very foundation for the formation of ideas. Building on his extensive research on the creative process of top chefs, Dr. Marc Stierand will talk about how these chefs engage in fascinating practices of aesthetic composing that shape their distinctive creative identity.


Marc Stierand, Ph.D., is an Associate Professor of Service Management and Director of the Institute of Business Creativity (IBC) at EHL. His research focuses on managerial and organizational cognition and management education and development, with a particular interest in personal and team creativity, intuition, and talent. Marc has authored several papers in diverse outlets, including Management Learning, the Journal of Creative Behavior, Creativity and Innovation Management, the International Journal of Contemporary Hospitality Management, and the Handbook of Research Methods on Intuition. He is a steering group member of the Research Methodology SIG of the British Academy of Management and the plenary chair of the Research Methods and Research Practice SIG of the European Academy of Management
