THRIVE IN A WORLD OF CHANGE & UNCERTAINTY.
HOW THE SCIENCE BEHIND CREATIVITY AND YOUR 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. MINDSET DESIGN
The fear of change & uncertainty comes mostly from our lack of knowledge on how to deal with them. Once we explore and understand how our body and mind work, from habit changes, mental flexibility to emotional intelligence, we can adapt faster in new environments and turn change into opportunity and make uncertainty to our destiny. Lifelong learning will become an enjoyable side effect.
2. NEURO CREATIVITY
A) We use the "What If..." methodology to challenge our fixed and limiting beliefs & expand our mind. At the same time, we tap into our most powerful and limitless resource: Our imagination. B) We use Neuro Creativity to help us understand creativity from a neuroscientific point of view and how we can train and design our creative muscles for short and long-term needs like creating new ideas, becoming a more pro-active and curious person.
3. CULTURE DESIGN
Building a great company culture means to design good employee, leadership and team experiences built on trustful relationships. It’s about the way you get in connection, structure and experience work in a team. People join, stay and leave a place to work because of their experience and if they feel heard, seen, trusted and challenged.
