How To Unlock Creativity

How To Unlock Creativity | Leadership for All | Scoop.it

"Do you know this guy on the left? Of course you do! The man, and in particular that photo, are icons. They represent creativity itself.

Yet Einstein is both an inspiration and an intimidation. His legend, unfortunately, has obscured much his story’s true value. He was, in many ways, unexceptional, but nevertheless managed to see the world differently and led others to do so as well."

John Michel's curator insight, March 12, 2013 8:38 AM

Leadership is not easy. In fact, if you are doing it right, it is downright difficult.  Learning to lead is an ongoing process that evolves with you.  Many skills and talents are molded together to create the leader you are today.  Your personality and the experience you have had either as a leader or with the leaders around you will definitely contribute to who you are as a leader.  We are clearly influenced by leaders and their actions, whether directly or in the media – a great leveler when it comes to viewing leaders as they truly are.

Very good article with an informative value for students and junior managers! It's a really interesting article, indeed, this list of 15 things that good leaders do every day give us the way to understand how to be a great leader. Nowadays it's important to understand how to well manage a team in order to be efficient. And trough this list of 15 elements we notice that to be a good leader, people have to share their knowledge and above all, a great leader must listen his colleagues. I think that young people should be guided by this model and be creative in order to make work efficiently all the team and reduce the bad pressure. Even if it’s uneasy to do these 15 things every day, business school should encourage theirs students to develop these skills or at least be aware of this list for them to be prepare to manage and be the leaders of tomorrow!

A very interesting article ! We can get inspired by this list of 15 things, and we can also see in the everydays-life who is a real leader and who is not. Enriching and useful, thanks for this article.
Saskia Zdm's curator insight, February 17, 2015 3:44 AM
This article shows how many things a successful leader should do in his company, with his employees. A leader should build confidence between him and employees to make them speak freely and as a consequence to ignite collective creativity from bottom up. The most important factor is having a very deep partnership with employees. That goes along with well measuring and rewarding performance and being trustworthy. This article is very interesting because it shows how much successful leaders should interact with employees by making them participating to decisions or by showing how much he is responsible. A successful leader must for sure know how to solve problems and this leads to positive energy and attitude within teams. Flexible thinking and bottom up participation are the best actions a successful leader should do. Empowered employees to generate ideas bring more value to leaders at less cost. Furthermore it allows them to properly deploy talent. During my last internship, the director used creative genius within employees and was fully responsible for it. She was a very good problem solver and brought positive attitude in the company so each teams were very positive and cooperating. And she was indeed a very good leader.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, June 1, 2013 9:49 PM

This report is based on a survey done by Gallup for Microsoft Learning and the Pearson Foundation. There are many findings of interest in this report. Three are below (quoted from the report).

* The majority of respondents (59%) reported that they agree or strongly agree that they developed most of the skills they use in their current job outside of school. Only 15% disagree or strongly disagree, indicating they felt that they developed these skills in school.

* Developing 21st century skills in the last year of school is positively correlated with higher perceived work quality later in life. In fact, those who have high 21st century skill development are twice as likely to have higher work quality compared to those who had low 21st century skill development.

* Across the 21st century skills included in this study, real world problem-solving is the significant driver of higher work quality; however, less than two-thirds (63%) of respondents reported developing this skill often in the last year of school and that number drops to less than half (39%) for high school graduates

Is your school providing students with these skills? The survey also noted that 59% of participants reported learning these skills outside the classroom. To go directly to the report: http://www.gallup.com/strategicconsulting/162821/21st-century-skills-workplace.aspx.

What comes to mind when you think of the word innovation? And if we apply innovation in education what are your thoughts? The Common Core informs us that we should be teaching creativity, curiosity, critical thinking, and more. If we look at innovation we meet these criteria. This post provides 10 ideas. Many of the ideas on the post provide links to additional resources.

* Teach concepts, not facts.

* Distinguish concepts from critical information.

* Make skills as important as knowledge.

* Use creativity tools.

Several years ago I was in the Thomson Building in Toronto. I went down the hall to the small kitchen to get myself a cup of coffee. Ken Thomson was there, making himself some instant soup. At the time, he was the ninth-richest man in the world, worth approximately $19.6 billion. Enough, certainly, to afford a nice lunch. I looked at the soup he was stirring. “It suits me just fine,” he said, smiling.
