Creative Discipline: An Oxymoron? - Creative Leader | Creativity & leadership | Scoop.it
Developing creativity is definitely one the most personally rewarding activities that a person can pursue, but it comes with certain challenges.  Once the fire hydrant of creativity is uncapped, it can be difficult to manage.  Once you learn how to generate new ideas, the greatest challenge is to cope with the infinite possibilities that follow.  [...]

I found this video pretty interesting and full of new information.<br>The professor highlighted all characteristics of Creative People and I found it really innovative.<br>She started from imagination and put us back into the childhood. “ The answer is based on the question you have asked” – she said and I liked it expression. By combining and connecting all the ideas together you may increase your creativity. <br><br>Another characteristic of creative people, which she mentioned is Challenge assumptions. Creating ideas and come up with a challenging assumption. Tina Seelig is talking about the knowledge as a base for an imagination and I think it is a really noteworthy fact and she also mentioned that the knowledge can be get by paying attention. Being confident is the tool to solve a problem. After I watched the video I came up with an idea that creative people have to work with what the already have – materials, information etc.<br>To sum up I may say that this video makes people to think and it is full of stimulating and remarkable knowledge.<br>
Aude Rohault's comment, February 16, 2014 12:08 PM
This video gives an interesting vision of what is a creative person is and how people can give free rein to their creativity. Actually, nowadays, creativity can be a strength for companies because it enables them to differentiate themselves from others. Indeed, creative people have a global vision of the environment, use their imagination and do not hesitate to take risks. <br>This is why companies should stimulate them by having great and stressless environment. <br>As Tina Seelig explained why and how creativity depends on many characteristics, and I really liked the way ski linked the things and the impacts each one has on the others. Creativity it is not only imagination but it is a global vision and a way of thinking. This new perception, and vision "outside the box", enable to take the right decision, to bounce on the failures and to do not hesitate to bring an idea to life. This solution ca be used in the work place and in everyday life, take into account to details, the environment, and do not be afraid of challenge.
Viktoriya Djulinski's comment, February 18, 2014 4:12 PM
This video is a great explanation and example of how people are "blocked" nowadays and how this could be avoided. Creativity is everywhere if we look around us. You can create something even with a little peace of paper, like a little paper airplane or a different figure. Usually people are afraid of what others could think or say and I think it is the main reason why people try to correspond to the “norms” of a “normal life”. We are afraid of critics or contempt. But I think being different is amazing and interesting, it is a way of attraction. And when we differentiate, when we are creative we attract. So why not starting being different by doing something little to develop it into something great? Companies to become great creative structures should induce even their most little parts.

N.C. is increasing ‘knowledge' jobs, but the state must do more - Editorial | StarNewsOnline.com | Creativity & leadership | Scoop.it

The Research Triangle and the state's largest universities have led the way in helping to move North Carolina from an agrarian and low-skill industrial economy to one that gave the state a reputation as a leader of the New South. But we are not keeping up with other states, even as innovation-based industries are proving to be the key to a solid economic future. To regain momentum, we must be willing to make public investments that may not pay off tomorrow, but which are necessary to get us where we need to be, and step up efforts to recruit "innovation industries."

 

Those are among the conclusions of a recent report from the N.C. Board of Science and Technology, which advises state officials. The report made some positive notes – particularly that the knowledge-based jobs we have pay well above average and put us roughly in the middle of the pack for innovation industries because of the work already accomplished. But it also pointed out some serious challenges that lawmakers and the business community must take seriously if North Carolina is to be in a position to reap the benefits of innovation jobs.

 

In a word, investment – in our children, our work force, our infrastructure and our economic development process. The report paid particular attention to education.
