Reclaim Your Creative Confidence

Reclaim Your Creative Confidence | Success Leadership | Scoop.it
Most people are born creative. As children, we revel in imaginary play, ask outlandish questions, draw blobs and call them dinosaurs. But over time, because of socialization and formal education, a lot of us start to stifle those impulses. We learn to be warier of judgment, more cautious, more analytical. The world seems to divide into “creatives” and “noncreatives,” and too many people consciously or unconsciously resign themselves to the latter category.

A great read. Please take the time to read this today...



(From the article): When it comes to leadership, humility is often perceived as weakness. That couldn’t be further from the truth. There are many ways to express humility — you might welcome feedback, admit mistakes, or simply treat others as equals. Your employees will view those as signs of strength, not weakness.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, April 22, 9:19 PM

I worked for a principal who presented about IDEO as being what we needed for creativity amongst teachers. He rarely acted with humility, if ever. That would be a good starting point for each of us.
