Last week, Mike Montiero shared a Harvard Business Review article that sparked considerable backlash. The article, titled “Seven Rules for Managing Creative-But-Difficult People” (title has been changed from the original “Seven Rules for Managing Creative People”) has amassed over 700 comments. It’s currently the most read and commented article on HBR in the past 30 days.
