RIP, Nelson Mandela: Madiba’s Moving Inauguration Speech and Timeless Wisdom from His Autobiography

RIP, Nelson Mandela: Madiba’s Moving Inauguration Speech and Timeless Wisdom from His Autobiography | Kreativitätsdenken | Scoop.it

"The greatest glory in living lies not in never falling, but in rising every time we fall."

We have lost Nelson Mandela, unequaled patron saint of equality, peace, and human rights. But while the body might be gone, the spirit remains forever with us — a spirit that not only changed political history, but also tirelessly elevated humanity into a higher version of itself. In his inauguration speech, delivered on May 10, 1994, and available below in its entirety, Madiba addresses the end of apartheid in words at once timeless and timely, ringing with soul-stirring resonance today in the wake of the end of DOMA and the dawn of marriage equality, which has been called “the civil rights issue of our day.” ......

Wenn wir uns unehrlich verhalten, gibt uns das das Gefühl weniger an Regeln gebunden zu sein, was wiederum zu mehr Kreativität führt.

Wenn wir uns unehrlich verhalten, gibt uns das das Gefühl weniger an Regeln gebunden zu sein, was wiederum zu mehr Kreativität führt. | Kreativitätsdenken | Scoop.it
Unser Alltag ist von Regeln bestimmt. Viele davon geben uns klare Verhaltensanweisungen an die Hand, was das Leben in vielerlei Hinsicht einfacher macht. Zum Beispiel weiß jeder, dass man nicht linksrum in einen Kreisverkehr einfährt oder dass man im Restaurant nach dem Essen auch dafür bezahlt. Manchmal werden solche Regeln allerdings gebrochen, wie etwa bei unehrlichem Verhalten, was allgemein als negativ angesehen wird. Die beiden Forschenden Francesca Gino und Scott Wiltermuth aber gehen davon aus, dass es manchmal durchaus von Vorteil sein kann Vorschriften zu brechen – und zwar dann, wenn Kreativität gefragt ist. Da es für Kreativität wichtig ist, über den Tellerrand hinauszuschauen und gelegentlich von allgemeingültigen Normen abzuweichen, war ihre Annahme, dass Menschen, die unehrlich handeln, bei Kreativitätsaufgaben deswegen gut abschneiden, weil sie weniger das Gefühl haben an Regeln gebunden zu sein.........

Lessons In Innovation From Six Of The World's Most Creative Thinkers | Kreativitätsdenken | Scoop.it

Much to his disappointment, Hayao Miyazaki is often referred to as the Walt Disney of Japan. Unlike the late Disney, Miyazaki prefers to be known as a creator and director rather than a producer and businessman. As the head of Studio Ghibli, the 73-year-old animator has built a global fan base and critical acclaim for works such as Spirited Away and Ponyo. Despite the sparseness of his canon and his reclusive nature, a rare look into Miyazaki’s creative process—as well as the creative processes behind five other world-renowned innovators—reveals some fascinating lessons and discoveries.........

Warum gehen großen Unternehmen die Ideen aus? | Kreativitätsdenken | Scoop.it

Konzerne haben viel Geld, Erfahrung und Tausende Mitarbeiter. Die besten Einfälle aber haben meist andere.



Fürth, 1951: Gustav Schickedanz fühlt sich bedroht. Der gelernte Kaufmann hat gerade das Versandhaus Quelle wiederaufgebaut; 1,5 Millionen Kunden geben dort regelmäßig ihre Bestellungen auf. Doch die Konkurrenten Otto und Neckermann sind Schickedanz auf den Fersen, und er beschließt, eine neue, leistungsfähigere Versandanlage bauen zu lassen. Sechs Jahre später eröffnet er die modernste Paketfabrik der Welt: Erstmals werden die Versanddaten elektronisch verarbeitet.

Das Unternehmen kann nun mehr als 100.000 Pakete pro Tag verschicken und wird zum größten Versandhaus Europas. Jahrzehntelang führt der Konzern ein ruhiges Leben. Selbst als im Jahr 1994 ein amerikanisches Start-up namens Amazon beginnt, Bücher, CDs und Videos über das Internet zu verkaufen, ist man in Fürth nicht weiter besorgt. Da Quelle vor allem ältere Kunden hat und andere Produkte vertreibt, scheint die Konkurrenz fern..........

How To Be More Creative Right Now

How To Be More Creative Right Now | Kreativitätsdenken | Scoop.it

To some, creativity is an elusive muse who rarely graces us with her presence. To others, she’s a best friend who stops by all the time to play and hang out. Either way, you can cultivate creativity any time—even right now. While you may not become the next Jony Ive or Salvador Dalí, it is possible for anyone to become more creative than they already are and to practice creativity. To be more creative, you have to understand a bit about the creative process. Creativity is using our imaginations or original ideas, especially in the production of artistic work. It’s also about making something new or making connections between seemingly disparate ideas or concepts. In business, creativity is all about solving problems with specific requirements and constraints. Sometimes we use creativity to break out of a rut, sometimes just to feel inspired. Are you trying to solve a problem, get unstuck, or are you just hoping to find something interesting to occupy your time? The answer to these questions should influence your approach to creativity, because your specific reason for wanting to be creative affects the nature of the creative process........

What Forms of Creativity Turn You On?

What Forms of Creativity Turn You On? | Kreativitätsdenken | Scoop.it

It’s no secret: creativity is sexy. People all over the world rank creativity as a highly desirable quality in a partner, and people who are creative across a variety of fields report more sexual partners (similar results have been found in specific fields such as visual art, music, and humor).

But are all forms of creativity equally attractive? According to evolutionary psychologist Geoffrey Miller, creative displays in humans are analogous to the peacock’s tail: they serve the function of attracting mates by serving as indicators of mental fitness (cognitive functioning and personality). Extending this argument, personality psychologist Gregory Feist made a key distinction between applied/technological displays of creativity (seen in modern domains of technology, science, and engineering), and ornamental/aesthetic displays of creativity (seen in modern domains of art, music, and other aesthetic domains). According to Feist, ornamental/aesthetic forms of creativity– which play on our evolved perceptual functions and evoke strong emotions in the perceiver– were shaped primarily by sexual selection pressures and are therefore more likely to receive a sexual response than applied/technological forms of creativity.......

Nachhaltige Innovationskultur: der Umgang mit „Verändern und Bewahren“ in der Führungsarbeit | Heinz Peter Wallner | Kreativitätsdenken | Scoop.it

Unsere Wirtschaft und Gesellschaft befinden sich in einer instabilen Phase. Es wird viele überraschende Entwicklungen geben, viele „schwarze Schwäne“, positive wie negative, die unsere Bestrebungen nach Innovationen zusätzlich anreichern und erheblich komplexer machen. Jedenfalls sind wir derzeit der sinnvollen Planbarkeit über längere Zeiträume beraubt. Der Umgang mit dem Unerwarteten, mit den Überraschungen der Zeit, wird schnell zur wichtigsten Führungskompetenz aufsteigen. Diejenigen, die sich im Umgang mit ganzheitlichen Veränderungen trainieren und die schnell auf neue Anforderungen reagieren können, werden auf die Überholspur wechseln. Die Treiber der Effizienz und der Optimierung werden sich an erfolgreiche Zeiten bald nur mehr vage erinnern können. Hier skizziere ich einige erste Ansatzpunkte für vier wichtige Kompetenzen, die Sie als Leader entwickeln sollten........

Teaching Innovation and Problem Solving

Teaching Innovation and Problem Solving | Kreativitätsdenken | Scoop.it

Business leaders are calling for workers who can solve problems and innovate solutions, but how can educators teach such abstract skills? After all, isn't every problem unique? Doesn't every solution differ? Yes. But the fundamental tools of problems solving are common to all situations, and they can be taught. The two most important mental tools are critical thinking and creative thinking.


Critical thinking is convergent. It focuses intently on a topic, paying careful attention to logic and rules. Critical thinking breaks a subject into its parts and investigates how the parts relate to each other: categorizing, sequencing, comparing, ranking. It is in-the-box thinking.


Creative thinking is divergent. It sees a topic as a whole and imagines it as an analogy for something else: envisioning, improvising, riffing, wondering. Creative thinking reaches out to explore possibilities and defies convention and rules. It is out-of-the-box thinking.......

Eight Proven Methods for Hatching Brilliant Ideas

Eight Proven Methods for Hatching Brilliant Ideas | Kreativitätsdenken | Scoop.it

I’m sitting by the fire on this chilly early morning in Santa Barbara, enjoying a cup of coffee. I am reflecting on all the people I’ve met and the places I’ve been this year, and thinking about the meaning of it all. When my friends and family ask where I’m off to next, I tell them I’m “home for the holidays,” and this invariably brings a smile to their faces. The truth is, though, I love what I get to do for a living. Love it so much that the grueling nature of air travel soon fades away, and the joy of sharing, learning and coaching remains. The common theme in all my travels this year is that you and I and everyone living today face challenges. And we all need ideas to meet those challenges. Which is why, in this year’s final issue, I want to focus on some favorite techniques for keeping your “idea factory” operating at peak levels so you can continue to turn the challenges you face in your personal and professional life into solutions and fresh opportunities.

The Biggest Reason We Steal Other People's Ideas

The Biggest Reason We Steal Other People's Ideas | Kreativitätsdenken | Scoop.it

Chances are that at some point in your career, you've taken an idea from someone else. I want to know why. There's a clue in a story about one of the great bands of our time. All good things come to an end, and by 1970, the beloved Beatles had decided to go their separate ways. Within a year, George Harrison reached No. 1 with a solo song, "My Sweet Lord." But his sweet time at the top was short-lived. Within a month, a lawsuit was filed. Harrison's song had original lyrics, but shared a melody and harmony with the 1963 hit song by the Chiffons, "He's So Fine." Was the Beatles' lead guitarist guilty of plagiarism? Judge Richard Owen, who happened to be a music aficionado, ruled that Harrison was guilty. But he said Harrison's theft wasn't intentional; it was accidental and subconscious. Eventually, Harrison conceded that Owen was right. "I wasn't consciously aware of the similarity between 'He's So Fine' and 'My Sweet Lord'," Harrison wrote in his autobiography. "Why didn't I realize?"......

The future of creativity may depend on younger generations being taught computer coding skills just as they are taught foreign languages, mathematics, and science. As we integrate digital products deeper and deeper into our lives, from smartphones to cars which are largely run by computers, dreaming up new ideas will depend on our ability to use coding languages. Megan Smith, Chief Technology Officer of the United States and former Google executive, has already called on educators to teach every American child how to code. But classroom teachers face a steep learning curve themselves as most were born during a time without advanced coding languages. Still, hardware and software manufacturers are attempting to reach younger generations with accessible technology........

8 Ways to Help Introverts Brainstorm for Creative Projects

8 Ways to Help Introverts Brainstorm for Creative Projects | Kreativitätsdenken | Scoop.it

Here’s a little scenario that will be familiar to most teachers. There you are leading a brainstorm for a creative project, when you notice several students haven’t contributed a single word. Despite your best attempts to moderate and encourage all voices, you just can’t seem to catch the eyes of the quiet ones. But you know they’ve got great ideas; in fact, their written work is often the best in the class. And yet, you know they’ll be mortified if you call them by name — red cheeks and stammering is almost a guarantee. How can you help your introverted students brainstorm great ideas without this level of stress? While there is a high chance that quieter students may be introverts, it’s important not to confuse introversion with shyness or other social anxieties. As Susan Cain articulates with such nuance in both her famous TED Talk and her bestselling book, Quiet: The Power of Introverts in a World That Can’t Stop Talking, introversion is primarily about a student’s energy. Students who gain their energy and inspiration from being around people are extroverts, while introverts are refreshed via quiet and alone time. Introverts can definitely be social creatures, but they can only be so when they’re getting enough solo thinking and contemplation time. Introverts are also more likely to find loud and highly social experiences overwhelming, and often prefer to have fewer but higher quality friends......

Creativity Creep | Kreativitätsdenken | Scoop.it

Every culture elects some central virtues, and creativity is one of ours. In fact, right now, we’re living through a creativity boom. Few qualities are more sought after, few skills more envied. Everyone wants to be more creative—how else, we think, can we become fully realized people? Creativity is now a literary genre unto itself: every year, more and more creativity books promise to teach creativity to the uncreative. A tower of them has risen on my desk—Ed Catmull and Amy Wallace’s “Creativity, Inc.”; Philip Petit’s “Creativity: The Perfect Crime”—each aiming to “unleash,” “unblock,” or “start the flow” of creativity at home, in the arts, or at work. Work-based creativity, especially, is a growth area.

How to Get Out of Your Own Way and Unblock the “Spiritual Electricity” of Creative Flow

How to Get Out of Your Own Way and Unblock the “Spiritual Electricity” of Creative Flow | Kreativitätsdenken | Scoop.it

“Art is not a thing — it is a way,” Elbert Hubbard wrote in 1908. But the question of what that way is, where exactly it leads, and how to best follow it is something artists have been grappling with since the dawn of recorded time and psychologists have spent decades trying to decode, outlining the stages of creativity, its essential conditions, and the best technique for producing ideas. In 1978, a few months after she stopped drinking, artist, poet, playwright, novelist, filmmaker, composer, and journalist Julia Cameron began teaching artists — by the broadest possible definition — how to overcome creative block and get back on their feet after a “creative injury.” What began as one-on-one lessons with a handful of artists became a larger workshop, then a course, which Cameron was invited to teach around the world, and eventually The Artist’s Way (public library) — a seminal, much-beloved handbook on the creative life, exploring its gateways, its obstacles, and how we can get out of our own way. It’s at once a practical set of techniques and a timeless philosophical meditation on the quintessential human impulse to create......

The image is from cartoonist Hugh MacLeod, who came up with such a brilliant way to express a concept that’s often not that easy to grasp. The image makes a clear point—that knowledge alone is not useful unless we can make connections between what we know. Whether you use the terms “knowledge” and “experience” to explain the difference or not, the concept itself is sound. Lots of great writers, artists and scientists have talked about the importance of collecting ideas and bits of knowledge from the world around us, and making connections between those dots to fuel creative thinking and new ideas. This is a really fun, inspiring topic to read about, so I collected some quotes and advice from my favorite creative thinkers about the importance of making connections in your brain. I’ve added emphasis to the important parts, but if you have time I’d recommend reading the whole post and even digging into the sources I’ve linked to.

Kreativer durch Bewegung

Spazieren zu gehen ist nicht nur entspannend und gesund – es macht auch kreativer. Denn wer vor einer kreativen Aufgabe aktiv herumgeht, statt zu sitzen, hat hinterher die besseren Ideen. Das belegt ein Experiment von US-Forschern. Bei kreativen Wortspielen schnitten diejenigen Probanden am besten ab, die entweder gerade draußen herumliefen oder auf einem Laufband gingen. Aber selbst ein kurzer Spaziergang vor dem Test verbesserte ihre kreativen Leistungen. Nach Ansicht der Forscher belegt dies, dass schon gemäßigte Bewegung gut für den Geist ist – und besonders für unsere Erfindungsgabe. Dass körperliche Bewegung nicht nur den Körper fit hält, sondern auch den Geist stärkt, ist nichts Neues: Studien belegen, dass regelmäßiges Joggen oder anderer Sport die geistigen Leistungen fördert und auch gegen Gedächtnisschwund im Alter helfen kann. “Aber viele Menschen würden ungern erst einmal 30 Minuten joggen, um ihre Kreativität bei der Arbeit zu erhöhen”, sagt Daniel Schwartz von der Stanford University. Gemeinsam mit seiner Kollegin Marily Oppezzo von der Santa Clara University hat er daher untersucht, ob auch schon einfaches Gehen ausreicht, um die Kreativität und Assoziationsgabe zu fördern. Immerhin sollen einige der bekanntesten Forscher ihre besten Ideen bei einem Spaziergang gehabt haben......

Creative work is teamwork. That much is all but indisputable for modern organizations. The age of the lonely artist working in solitude is all but gone, if it ever existed in the first place. As we push to solve bigger and bigger challenges, we seem to inevitably need more and more people to solve them. Even our school systems are being reworked to emphasize working as a team. When it comes to organizational life, however, few people even find themselves a member of one team. Sure there’s your department, but there’s also the cross-functional team, the special task force, and the party planning committee. Many have found that serving as members of multiple teams at the same time is their new organizational reality. This presents a challenge for both team members and leaders: how do we allocate time to all those teams and how do leaders find the right people from the right team......
