You'll also learn why "a ha" moments are less rare than you realize, and how to create a work schedule that allows for light bulb experiences almost on demand.
Session 2: Why expertise might hamper creativity
In the modern economy, we tend to assume that when problems get hard, it's time to seek out experts. But in this session, you'll learn why expertise might actually be hindering your creative insights and how to cultivate a mindset that allows for inspiration for a variety of sources.
Session 3: Why originality is the enemy of creativity
You're not that original, and in this session, you'll learn why that's such a good thing. Ideas are built from combining inspiration from a variety of sources, and you'll learn exactly how to create the right combinations.
Session 4: How the most creative teams work together
Creativity is a team sport. In this session, you'll learn why the archetype of the lonely creative is a myth and how and why to build a team and network around you that allows you to get more, and more creative, work done.
Session 5: How to get your idea to spread
Creativity, once its scales becomes an innovation. Sharing your creative idea with the world is a gift, but not one everyone willingly excepts. In this session, you'll learn why great ideas get rejected AND how to set up your idea to spread quickly.
