Most people are born creative. As children, we revel in imaginary play, ask outlandish questions, draw blobs and call them dinosaurs. But over time, because of socialization and formal education, a lot of us start to stifle those impulses. We learn to be warier of judgment, more cautious, more analytical. The world seems to divide into “creatives” and “noncreatives,” and too many people consciously or unconsciously resign themselves to the latter category.
And yet we know that creativity is essential to success in any discipline or industry. According to a recent IBM survey of chief executives around the world, it’s the most sought-after trait in leaders today. No one can deny that creative thinking has enabled the rise and continued success of countless companies, from start-ups like Facebook and Google to stalwarts like Procter & Gamble and General Electric.
In this presentation you will discover why you lost your creative confidence—the natural ability to come up with new ideas and the courage to try them out, and how to restore it back.

  • I love the sense of irony (intentionally or otherwise) when people's focus is on the accuracy of the spelling.
    I was thoroughly engrossed in the message regarding creativity! The comments re spelling are exactly what is being fought against.
    Know when spelling is vital, know when logic is essential and then follow the rules. Also know when logic and rule adherence get in the way of creativity - because they do and then they kill it dead!
