Sharolyn S. Griffith's curator insight, March 26, 2013 10:35 AM

Creativity is essential as a skill for this century.

Rachelle Wooten's curator insight, March 26, 2013 11:25 AM

If there is one area where we could really use some creativity is in the area of PD! I could really appreciate this quote, "Spurts of time riddled with interruptions aren’t conducive to creativity because each time our focus is wrecked, we struggle to get back to the point we’d reached in our creative “flow”." Time is always an issue but it's so necessary to creativity.

academiPad's curator insight, May 10, 2013 4:08 PM

This is a must read for everybody who needs to be creative - that is everybody. Some tips include carving out time, making this non-negotiable, and recognizing that you have to work yourself into your creative zone are only some of the things discussed. Plus you get to watch a video on the topic from John Cleese - come one, JOHN CLEESE! Great read!!

Emotionally safe in an entertainment career

Emotionally safe in an entertainment career | Developing Creativity | Scoop.it

“I remember thinking, 'I didn’t know that was classified as assault or sexual harassment.' I just chalked it up to a sleazy guy being sleazy.” Margot Robbie.
