Innovation and creativity are now widely accepted as driving forces behind business success, and are among the most highly prized qualities in today’s leaders. But most of us tend to abdicate the mantle of creativity to the “creative types” – those who paint, sculpt, design, or write for a living.
We forget as kids, we were all creative, making things out of clay and using crayons with abandon. Over time, so many of us were discouraged in our creative endeavors and eventually focused our energies on more traditional pursuits.
In the Creative Confidence workshop, we will remind you that we all have ideas and insights to offer. These strategies are based on the book, Creative Confidence, by the Kelley Brothers. They demonstrate that creativity is a mindset, a way of thinking, and a proactive approach to finding new solutions. We may not all be artists, but we can be more creative lawyers, doctors,managers, or salespeople.
Creativity and the ability to innovate, they explain, are like muscles – the more we use them, the stronger they get. Creative confidence gives us courage to make a difference in the world around us and inspire us to combine breakthrough ideas with action in a way that improves our companies, our careers, and our lives.
Join Creative Catalysts for the Creative Confidence workshop on September 20th at 6 PM in the Mesa Contemporary Arts Museum Classroom. You can RSVP directly to Jen Gastelum at email@example.com.
