Who Killed Creativity?: Identifying the Psychological Blocks to Creative Thinking

Gaia Grant

CEOs say it’s the #1 leadership competency needed for the future and it is a stronger predictor of life success than IQ, and yet CQ (Creative Quotient) testing shows creative thinking is on the decline worldwide. Up to 80% of business growth comes from new innovations and ideas, so this ‘creativity gap’ needs to urgently be addressed.

Based around an engaging CSI theme, in this session participants learn about the latest brain research to discover what can block the creative thinking process and how these blocks can be identified and overcome. Gaia has developed a series of solid strategies for how innovation can be strategically developed based on the unique ‘Strategies for Innovative Development’ (SID) four-phase model for innovation through cultural transformation.
