10 Techniques to Unleash Your Creativity

10 Techniques to Unleash Your Creativity | Riders on the Storm | Scoop.it

Via Daniel Watson
Carol Sherriff's insight:

Tip no 4 - walking unleashes the eureka ideas supports Wilson Sherriff's strategic walk as  a technique to unlock ideas that haven't yet been expressed. 1. Set yourself a strategically important question, write it up and then forget it 2. go out with your team (preferably outdoors) and walk and talk about what you see, hear and feel around you picking up or photographing interesting objects as you go. 3. Bring these objects/photos and discussion back into the work place 4. reconnect with the strategic question - what do the objects and the discussions reveal that is new?

Neuroscience & Creativity: New Findings

Neuroscience & Creativity: New Findings | Riders on the Storm | Scoop.it

"Thoughtful cognitive neuroscientists such as Rex Jung, Darya Zabelina, Andreas Fink, John Kounios, Mark Beeman, Kalina Christoff, Oshin Vartanian, Jeremy Gray, Hikaru Takeuchi and others are on the forefront of investigating what actually happens in the brain during the creative process. And their findings are overturning conventional notions surrounding the neuroscience of creativity.


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.


Instead, the entire creative process– from the initial burst of inspiration to the final polished product– consists of many interacting cognitive processes and emotions. Depending on the stage of the creative process, and what you’re actually attempting to create, different brain regions are recruited to handle the task."

Carol Sherriff's insight:

As humans we seem programmed to divide everything into this and that. Then find out it is all part of a much wider whole. Brain and creativity no different after all!
