Enable Creativity with These Qualities for World Creativity and Innovation Week April 15-21

Here’s a list of qualities from which to select an area to explore, experiment with, and expand…

  • Abstraction: Abstract concepts from ideas
  • Connection: Connect things that don’t initially appear connected
  • Perspective: Shift perspective of a situation in terms of time, space and other people’s point of view
  • Curiosity: Seek to change or improve things that everyone else accepts as the norm
  • Boldness: Push boundaries beyond accepted conventions
  • Paradox: Accept and work with statements that are contradictory
  • Complexity: Carry large quantities of information and mix and match the relationship among that information
  • Persistence: Force yourself to derive more and stronger solutions even when good ones have already been generated.
