In getting ready for 2011, here’s a thought. It’s time to teach creativity. Perhaps the article below will inspire. http://www.educationnews.org/michael-f-shaughnessy/104095.html
See, as well, Newsweek‘s cover story this summer about creativity–reporting on a creativity gap for the U.S. http://www.newsweek.com/2010/07/10/the-creativity-crisis.html We cannot continue to lead without fostering and growing creativity. For starters, “forget brainstorming!” Interesting.
To create anew we need to think and act anew. Happy New Year!
