THRIVE IN A WORLD OF CHANGE & UNCERTAINTY.
HOW THE SCIENCE BEHIND CREATIVITY AND THE BRAIN
CAN HELP YOU AND YOUR TEAM
... I stopped consuming sugar, carbs & alcohol for a whole year? The bet with my siblings was on and I was terrified. Knowing me and ..READ MORE.
Fast forward... In the past years, I’ve lived on four continents, five in total, met thousands of people from all corners of the world (this was before Covid-19), connected even more people with each other and dug deep into all sorts of psychological and neuroscientific research about the science behind creativity and the way our brain works and plays. Now, equipped with a much deeper understanding of us humans, I would say that I understood one little but quite a fundamental element that differentiates people who drown, from those who thrive and grow: They look at the same but see connections others don't.
It’s this little differentiator in our brain which determines if we thrive or drown in this world of exponential change and uncertainty. But the good news is we can train our brain to see a) more connections and b) connections others don't. Our mindset plays a huge role in all those little moments when we either see a problem or an opportunity, embrace growth or hide in our comfort zone, play and dance to the unique beat of change and uncertainty or stay outside the disco. It’s up to us to understand the importance of it and start programming it to our advantage.
“Connective Creativity” helps you understand the science behind creativity & your brain and gives you the tools to unlock your full creative potential and let you and your team play and thrive in a world of exponential change and uncertainty.
THE THREE PILLARS
1. SHORT-TERM CREATIVITY
A) We use brain hacking mechanisms to set your mind in the ideal setting for creativity. This can be done through disrupting routine hacks, abrupt mood changes, very conscious daydreaming, meditation techniques, and so on.
B) We use the "What If..." methodology to challenge our fixed and limiting beliefs in order to expand our mind. At the same time, we tap into our most powerful and limitless resource: Our imagination.
2. LONG-TERM CREATIVITY
We look at creativity from a neuroscientific point of view in more depth in order to understand how we can practise and design our creative muscles for long-term needs. For example for creating more and new ideas, solving problems faster and better and becoming a more pro-active and curious person. The more we practice our creative muscles, the bigger our imaginative world will become. And the more we can use it as our most powerful resource in a world of change and uncertainty.
3. WORLD-CLASS CREATIVITY
How do world-class creatives like Leonardo Da Vinci, Albert Einstein or J.K. Rowling (used to) work and think creatively? How can we use habit formation, neuro curiosity, network thinking and play to improve our own lives, processes at work and home 10x and find the right balance between creativity and productivity? Once we explore and understand how our brain works and model the creative habits and techniques from the creative elite, we can adapt 10x faster in a world of change and uncertainty, turn fear into play, problems into opportunities & be on the path to world-class creativity. Lifelong learning will become an enjoyable side effect.
