Fostering Creativity in Self and the Organization

Book description

As a professional, this book will help you maximize your
creative potential—learning that successful creative
expression is a function of hard work and discipline rather
than innate talent or genius. Reaching your creative potential
requires an open mind and this book will help.
The author discusses some of the mental models that
facilitate or impede your development as a creative person.
Since creativity encompasses so many things, the author
focuses on four creative behaviors and cognitions critical
to self-development and career advancement: improvisational
capacity, design thinking, your experimental and scientific
mind, and aesthetic awareness. These abilities are critical
success factors for 21st century professionals.
Inside, you’ll learn how to leverage these abilities along
with innate strengths derived from your multiple intelligence
inventory, which include linguistic intelligence,
mathematical/logical intelligence, visual/spatial intelligence,
musical intelligence, interpersonal intelligence,
intrapersonal intelligence, kinesthetic intelligence, and
naturalistic intelligence. You’ll also learn how to identify
specific ways to accelerate your progress. The book concludes
with a plan of action to systematically develop your
creative potential over time.
