What's more important, good ideas or good people?  Ed Catmull, founder of Pixar, gives us his answer in his book Creativity, Inc. 

In this episode, I discuss Ed Catmull's point of view that because ideas come from people, creative companies need to know how to develop the right creative culture.

Three insights I go over in this episode are:

• How Pixar made use of candor to develop their films.

• Why creative companies need to embrace the possibility of failure.

• How to protect new ideas from critics who don't yet understand.

I go over one more book in comparison to Creativity, Inc:

• What did Daniel Coyle learn from Pixar when he interviewed Ed Catmull for his book The Culture Code?

• How do the other insights in his book add to what we learn in Creativity, Inc?
