Creativity is in all of us.

In a Q&A with Skip Prichard, we talk about the misconceptions of creativity and how it’s a skill that can be developed over time. It takes divergent, combinent and convergent thinking to discover forced connections, but eventually the Creative Problem-Solving technique results in innovative ideas.

“Using Forced Connections, the resulting ideas may not be the breakthrough you’re hoping for, but the technique gets the idea-generating process moving again so you can dig deeper for those breakthroughs.”

We also discussed some characteristics of a leader who helps develop a culture of creativity, which include someone who is selfless, open to new approaches, and supportive of all team members equally. From there, the current of growth will keep flowing in your organization.
