Ness Crouch's curator insight, June 6, 2014 11:25 PM

Creativity is something that can be nourished but can it be learned? I'm not able to decide on that yet.

Josie Gibson's curator insight, June 8, 2014 9:24 PM

Some excellent reminders - 'All experiences are neutral...you don't see things are THEY are, you see them as YOU are'.

Sharla Shults's curator insight, June 16, 2014 1:27 PM

5 Steps to Thinking Creatively

5 Steps to Thinking Creatively | children's education | Scoop.it

"Geniuses produce because they think fluently and flexibly," says Michael Michalko in his book "Cracking Creativity."

 

"Fluency of thought means generating quantities of ideas." A key characteristic of genius is immense productivity. Thomas Edison held 1093 patents. Einstein published 248 papers. Darwin wrote 119 papers besides his theory of evolution. Therefore, if you want more creative/innovative thinking in your organization, you must encourage the generation of "quantities of ideas."

 

However, if you stifle creative thinking by sending subtle or not so subtle messages that "we must just spend our time doing things the way we have always done"...because they have worked, you'll never find a better more efficient method. Your innovative risk-taking competitor will! That's how Microsoft climbed to success passing IBM and why they know they have to continue investing mega-millions in R&D.

 

===> You must encourage people to think creatively and take risks. <===
