Developing Creativity Course :Course Outline
This course is a soft skills course, business people in the fields of leadership, service and sales are invited to take part as well, since it sometimes takes thinking out of the box to best serve your customer or sell your product or be a successful leader. This course links back to the workshop on creative problem solving. Creative thinking is difficult to define because of its many forms, people usually associate creativity with are but this is not true. Creativity is original thought, divergent thought, problem solving, inspiration and imagination. Remember motivation inspires creativity.TIP: Removing the mental block. If creative writing is your passion, if you hit a mental block keep to your daily writing count, whether its a thousand words or four thousand words a day keep doing it so that your brain can weed out the block. What you write may be rubbish but when the block has been overcome youll be back on track. Creativity is something that can evolve in ones mindset. It is just like a muscle, if you use it, it becomes stronger, if you dont you lose it. Enabling creative thinking to thrive in your mind requires an open mind. It also helps if your attitude is positive. Making associations is an excellent mental activity to increase creativity. It is also important to question the world around you, be self aware and be confident in your creative thought process. Curiosity is a trait that should be cultivated as it is imperative to creative thought. Begin by defining your passion and then learn more about it. Ask yourself open ended questions and let the creativity flow from there. The product of your creativity or creative thought is a part of you. If you dont risk sharing it, it may not even as well exist for all the good it does. Authors, artists, indeed anyone in a creative environment take a risk to share of themselves every time they show a painting or publish a book. Dont be afraid to take the risk and do develop a thick skin. There will be people who dont like it, but they will be outnumbered by the number of people who do. The recognition from your work is worth the risk. As an example J.K. Rowling was rejected by seventy eight publishers before a small unheard of publishing house agreed to publish Harry Potter. What would have happened if she decided the rejection wasnt worth it and stopped applying after her second rejection? Or worse after the seventy seventh rejection? We end of the workshop on creativity by giving participants some practical tips to induce creativity and explain how creative thought applies in a work situation.
