How You Can Build Your Creative Confidence

177

You are not alone when you think you are not creative. In fact, we are all born creative but somewhere because of post natal conditioning and fears and phobias we become inhibited and forget to use our creativity.

Growing up in Ohio, David Kelley was the type of kid who would take apart car engines and washing machines. Today, the founder of the design firm IDEO and Stanford’s design school focuses on creative ways to fix problems, from upgrading the Apple mouse to solving traffic jams. He joins us to talk about the importance of cross-collaboration, his book “Creative Confidence” and how each person can unlock his or her own creativity.

Too often, companies and individuals assume that creativity and innovation are the domain of the “creative types.” In “Creative Confidence”in an incredibly entertaining and inspiring narrative that draws on countless stories from their work at IDEO, the Stanford d.school, and with many of the world’s top companies, David and Tom Kelley identify the principles and strategies that will allow us to tap into our creative potential in our work lives, and in our personal lives, and allow us to innovate in terms of how we approach and solve problems. It is a book that will help each of us be more productive and successful in our lives and in our careers.
