Delight 2016 | Co-Create: Creating Better Together — Denise Jacobs & Jessie Shternshus

412 views

Published on

Despite the prevalent mythology of the lone creative genius, many of the most innovative contributions spring from the creative chemistry of a group and the blending of everyone’s ideas and concepts. How can we best leverage this collective wisdom to generate creative synergy and co-create? Let’s look at the process of recognizing and removing our personal creative blocks, connecting and communicating with others, combining ideas using play, and constructing a collaborative environment to discover effective methods for tapping into a group’s creative brilliance. Through these steps, you’ll learn to capitalize on the super-linearity of creativity to embrace and leverage diversity to create better together.

Presented at Delight 2016 by:
Denise Jacobs, The Creative Dose
Jessie Shternshus, The Improv Effect
