Anita Brick of the University of Chicago’s Careercast Podcast interviewed me on how to shift your mindset and go beyond your impasse to create breakthroughs. Listen in!
Creativity has been defined as the use of the imagination or original ideas, especially in the production of an artistic work.
Innovation is a conscious choice. You can choose to do things the way you have always done them before.
I was recently interviewed by Michael Matias and featured on the 20 Minute Leaders podcast.
As a leader, it’s important to ask your team to help develop ideas, redefine problems and continually practice Creative Problem Solving.
It’s important to look at problems as opportunities, learning “the language of creativity” to inject possibilities into your company.
If you generate only 10-12 ideas, you’re not being creative. Those are the same ones everyone has — creativity comes in the stretch.
Despite benefits of AI, it’s important to use natural creativity and the Creative Problem Solving process in songwriting and other actions.
As discussed on “Get Down To Business,” asking questions that contain “what might” or “how to” phrases will help figure out the true problem.
Some people say that they can’t afford to be creative, but the bottom line is that you can’t afford to not be creative.
It’s important to learn the true power of creativity, brainstorming creative ideas and implementing those across multiple topics.
Creative Problem Solving’s first step is to clarify the problem, asking creative questions and asking “What’s stopping me?”
If leaders want to lead an innovative, resilient and future-focused organization, they need to be a creative leader and be creative.
Just like human brains mobilize and fight an enemy using the fight, flight or freeze response, organizations do the same in dangerous situations.
When instilling innovation practices, don’t force people into some lock-step method or overwhelm them with creativity tools.
