Creativity is a common currency between the arts and business sectors. Whether we’re applying creativity to how solve a problem, reach new markets, or create a poignant moment, creativity is an inherent human trait we all possess.
However, the more time we spend doing things “right”, getting them done efficiently, and doing the same tasks on repeat, the less we depend on those creative pathways in our brains.
Creativity Moments are designed to help those of us who don’t identify as “creative people” begin to use those creative pathways and discover our creative strengths.
