Creativity Is Not A Talent | Cultivating Innovation

Habitat cultivates habit (UPDATE: video now blocked due to copyright infringement. Other versions are here)

The above video is a feast for the brain / heart and introduces the conditions for creativity:

  • Space—obviously, both the physical and psychological
  • Time—half of creating the oasis
  • Time—to play with the problem and solving it with something original
  • Confidence—to get things wrong
  • Humour—getting us from the closed to the open mode/mindset in the quickest way possible

For me the most compelling idea in the whole presentation is that creativity is not an in-built-DNA-traceable-disposition.

It’s something which can be learned.



So, do the organisations / companies we create / work for foster the above conditions so creativity / innovation can blossom?
