7 Components of Creativity - Creativity Catapult

7 Components of Creativity - Creativity Catapult | Management - Leadership | Scoop.it
Creativity is learned through practice. While young children are inherently creative, the development of long-term creative potential depends on experience.

The “7 Components of Creativity” – as established by the Center for Childhood Creativity in the white paper, Inspiring a Generation to Create: Critical Components of Creativity in Children (2015)  – provides a framework of the key processes or skills that contribute to creativity, organized across three childhood developmental areas: cognitive; social and emotional; and physical.

The activities in Creativity Catapult each link to one or more of the components.

Via John Evans
James Schreier's insight:

One of the most important parts of many management training programs I've conducted has been a focus on teaching creativity.

An Excellent Quote

An Excellent Quote | Management - Leadership | Scoop.it
“ Nothing ruins the flow of conversation more quickly than refusing a compliment you have just received. Never disagree with something nice that is said to you or about you. ”

 
~Quote by Letitia Baldridge
James Schreier's insight:

This seems like a simple point -- it's not.  I've seen a surprising number of individuals in work settings who discount compliments -- with the anticipated result that compliments stop!  I've also studied -- and hopefully learned to practice -- how talented performers so graciously welcome, accept, and encourage compliments in the form of applause and compliments.

 

I've taught 1000's of managers to understand this point -- not only for themselves but for their role as managers -- understanding that their employees may discount their compliments.  It's so easy to stop complimenting an employee if/when they're not accepting the compliments.
