Absolutely Scott. I remember when I used to think my gen was the best thing since sliced bread, now I have to remind myself my gen does not know it all :)
Garth Sanginiti's curator insight, August 14, 2013 8:48 PM

While there are many qualities that distinguish millennials from other generations, "One of the key things to remember, he [the author] said, is that millennials are highly collaborative."  However, collaborative doesn't mean they are skilled at communicating, at least outside of today's common social media forums.  Generation Y also appreciates transparency.  Good points to consider in today's blended workforce.

The Real Neuroscience of Creativity

The Real Neuroscience of Creativity | Mindful Leadership & Intercultural Communication | Scoop.it

You know how the left brain is really realistic, analytical, practical, organized, and logical, and the right brain is so darn creative, passionate, sensual, tasteful, colorful, vivid, and poetic?

 

No.

 

Just no.

 

Stop it.

 

Please.

Kenneth Mikkelsen's curator insight, August 20, 2013 2:01 PM

The latest findings from the real neuroscience of creativity suggest that the right brain/left brain distinction is not the right one when it comes to understanding how creativity is implemented in the brain. 


Creativity does not involve a single brain region or single side of the brain.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, August 20, 2013 2:54 PM

Another great article bringing the neuroscience aspect into the picture.
