5 Creativity Tips From Prince's Stellar Career

5 Creativity Tips From Prince's Stellar Career | Writing about Life in the digital age | Scoop.it

Tributes to the work of Prince continue to appear, more than a week after the legendary songwriter and performer passed away at age 57.

A recent story showcased Prince's strengths in the realms of creativity and talent development--and revealed how his passion for music was the key to his prolific career. Here are five highlights: 

1. Prince had a work ethic born of passion. Even after he was a famous and rich superstar, Prince's work ethic never waned. "He'd come to rehearsal, work us, go work his band, then he'd go to his studio all night and record," is what James "Jimmy Jam" Harris, Prince's high school classmate and producer, tells EW. "Then the next night he'd come to rehearsal with a tape in his hand and he'd say, 'This is what I did last night.' And it'd be something like '1999,' and you're just like, 'Who does this?'"

2. Prince was a molder of young talent--a superboss. His proteges included Scottish singer Sheena Easton, dancer Carmen Electra, and his former drummer, Sheila E. "He loved working with women and helping them and encouraging them and saying, 'Hey, I think this would be a good song for you,'" Sheila E. tells EW. Like Miles Davis and other "superboss" artists, Prince prided himself on being the foundation of a talent tree, and watching his branches find their own paths.

Presentations have an important place in the corporate world. Whether presenting product releases or quarterly year reports, a nicely designed presentation captivates the audience. It increases the audience's interaction and interest. A well weaved narration of information in form of a presentation, can instill life to a plain and boring topic as well.

How Do I Get People To Speak Up In Brainstorming Meetings?

How Do I Get People To Speak Up In Brainstorming Meetings? | Writing about Life in the digital age | Scoop.it

We've all been in that brainstorming meeting: the one where you could hear a pin drop, and the white board of "great ideas" remains blank. It's awkward for participants and downright excruciating for the person leading the meeting.

 

Psychologist Art Markman helps us figure out how to get people talking.

 

Dear Tired.

 

I sympathize. Nothing is more frustrating than wanting to get your group to generate great ideas and ending up with a room full of people staring at their shoes.

It is certainly difficult to get people to open up right at the beginning in a brainstorming meeting. It is alas human nature that determines whether a person opens up in the beginning or almost at the end! The greatest challenge is for the leader to make others open up. Some of the leaders I know start with a warm up session with simple physical exercises, games, and yogic exercises! These help loosen the ropes of inhibition that prevent people from speaking out. But the to say that these strategies are enough would be wrong! It takes skill, expertise and experience in the leader to organise a meaningful brainstorming session.
