Vulnerability Is the Birthplace of Creativity | Creativity, Innovation, Problem solving | Scoop.it
Indeed, research professor Brené Brown says you can't innovate without vulnerability.
Sarah Haywood's insight:

This acknowledges that when people are trying something new, failure could be an option and through that we can feel vulnerable. Helping people to recognise this discomfort and saying it's ok is giving them permission to be courageous.

The REAL Reason You Have Writer's Block | Creativity, Innovation, Problem solving | Scoop.it
We've all been there: Staring at a blinking cursor on a bright white screen, your brain as blank as the Word document in front of you. Creativity can be elusive, coming and going unexpectedly and refusing to be there when you need it most.

Exploring what we might be stopping us or blocking us from creativity has value, as removing potential triggers could improve our creativity

8 Creativity Lessons from a Pixar Animator : zenhabits

By Leo Babauta. Sometimes immersing yourself in the creative world of people doing amazing things can bring unexpected results. My son Justin is interested in 3D animation, and my daughter Chloe is into screenwriting, ...
Sarah Haywood's insight:

Again lots that be translated here: 1. Tenacity matters - for me this is asking 'what else?' pushing our thinking beyond what we can immediately think of. I know from working with groups that initially they will connect with lingo, jargon and the well known but given a few more 'What else?' questions really produces something much more valuable.  2. Art is your particular telling of reality. - I absolutely agree with the notion of the need to let go of preconceived ideas and letting individuals express freely 3. Feed off others’ ideas - so much momentum can be gathered through collaboration. 4.Let go of ego. - the need to the 'one that created the idea' can create barriers. 5. Everyone should know the mission well. - I just think ensuring everyone in on the same page as it could be a distraction and disjointed. 6. Lots of hard work, tiny but amazing results.- going for best results, lots of ideas is great but homing in on a few to make one fantastic idea is even better. 7. Surround yourself with heroes. - look for people who inspire you and surround yourself with them. 8. Help those just starting out - love the 'passion and dreams are important to keep alive' statement and therefore helping others is about breeding a culture for me

1. Role-play and free play are both fantastic to open up the imagination 2. Construction toys such as lego or building blocks without a set model to make. Leave it open ended 3.Encourage risk taking and exploration. Not every exploration will result in a work of unparalleled ingenuity but this is the process of learning. 4. Praise effort rather than an innate ability. Encourage the process rather than the end result.
5. Ask open ended questions such as ‘What would happen if…?’ ‘How else could we solve this problem?’ ‘Tell me what might happen next?’ ‘Why do you think that?’
6. Boost confidence. A person cannot maximise his or her creative potential if he/she doesn’t have the confidence to “have a go” or dare to think differently.
7. Provide a creative environment which includes light and space as well as allowing people to independently choose and dictate their line of investigation
8. Let people direct outings. Ask them what they would like to find out about and how they might do it. Scaffold independence and allow them to take the lead.
