If we agree with Sir Ken Robinson that creativity gets clobbered at school and work, we’ll likely also agree it takes risks to ignite and infuse a more creative future.
It also takes a very different kind of support and intelligence-fair performance reviews for facultyas well as tests for students, as stated here at Forbes.
If you prepare to take risks you also prepare to create, in spite of structures that shun risks or assessments that demand so-called-correct answers only.
Sadly, our culture has stripped our minds of the creativity we are born to grow and enjoy. We’ve hardwired as a culture of cynicism – and cynicism blocks or kills creative solutions.
It’s time to rethink – what does creativity have you do with human brainpower? Research shows people are most creative when they feel they are making meaningful progress.
If you – or others – stepped on your creative talents, how can you retrieve them today?
Care for a brainpowered tool to grow creativity?
1. Do something today that you’d like others to see in you tomorrow.
2. Listen to the opposite of your idea and use what you learned from it.
3. Hold a crown over heads and support people to grow into them.
What comes to mind when you hear the word creativity – risk or regret?
