THE PATH TO CREATIVE THOUGHT LEADER
WAS NEVER GOING TO BE A STRAIGHT LINE...
It started when I dropped out of Uni, to live and train in a Kung Fu school.
Actor... writer... photographer... Barista (cliché, I know)... L&D Consultant... I was a Private Investigator for a week.
Over the last fifteen years, I've managed to juggle creative pursuits in tandem with corporate contracts; from scaling tech start-ups with zero cost strategy, to designing 'escape rooms' for spies.
In March 2023, I designed VΛULT, the worlds first independent financial platform (IFP); a disruptive fin-tech service that removes banks as middle-men and puts you in control of your own money.
CREATIVITY USED TO BE A 'NICE TO HAVE'...
It is a misconception that creativity 'has no rules'... it does... you need to learn its language.
In a post-pandemic era the demand for creativity has been exposed; leadership require the ability to adapt intelligently, solve complex problems and empathetically manage teams. Organisations must be proactive to adopt alternative solutions, think creatively and design original innovation if they're to survive a disruptive landscape.
CREATIVITY IS NOW THE 'MUST HAVE SKILL'...
The Six Creative Skill Sets helps organisations form a practical approach to creativity:
1. Develop creative intelligence - you need creative skills, not another process.
2. Build effective creative process - skills drive process, not the other way around.
3. Design OPTIMAL creative solutions - not every new idea is a good idea and you want the BEST ideas.
Einstein noted... "We cannot solve our problems with the same thinking we used when we created them”... so how are you changing your thinking and how is your creative process helping you lead?
