Read & Download à Creative Confidence Unleashing the Creative Potential Within Us All 107 IDEO founder and Stanford dschool creator David Kelley and his brother Tom Kelley IDEO partner and the author of the bestselling The Art of Innovation have written a powerful and compelling book on unleashing the creativity that lies within each and every one of usToo often companies and individuals assume that creativity and innovation. A bit of a disappointment as much because of my expectations as the book itself I was hoping unleashing the creative potential within all of us would have a lot application to education than business but it was rather relentlessly corporate in its viewpoint So in that respect it has a lot of case studies where this CEO and that company employee prove that thinking outside of the rhombus pays offMuch of the material is familiar Be open minded Be willing to take chances Carry paper for ideas Do not fear failure embrace it I find it too fat to get my arms around Doodle Use whiteboards Use blackboards Use Sticky Notes especially Work alone Work together Play Do not dismiss out of hand any ideaIt wasn t until I got to a lonely back of the book chapter Move Creative Confidence To Go that my buck was walking the 29 walk Here the Kelley Bros offer concrete activities sort of what I hoped the whole book would offer five of which might come in handy in the classroom Thus some gold bits are plucked from the mud But safe to say it ll be a long time before I read another how to book on creativity And if I do I ll just make it up myself checking off all the steps Or not

Read & Download à Creative Confidence Unleashing the Creative Potential Within Us All 107 Ompanies David and Tom Kelley identify the principles and strategies that will allow us to tap into our creative potential in our work lives and in our personal lives and allow us to innovate in terms of how we approach and solve problems  It is a book that will help each of us be productive and successful in our lives and in our career. A book is good when it is well written and offers insight But a book is amazing when it can actually make a difference to your life to who you are as an individual I would put this book in the latter category I picked it up to get some background on a design thinking role I was hoping to apply for Amidst these job applications it s easy for anyone to feel jaded I was in fact uite morose and skeptical of the value my higher education has created in my life But the I read this book the excited I felt about finding opportunities around me The Kelley brothers write very simplistically and this is a uick read They discuss many examples of the difference that design thinking has made to people s lives One thing that stuck with me was the curse of competence that they mention It is the idea that when you are academically smart the excessive pragmatism of external influences pushes you in the generic directions most people take in life For instance if you re good at sciences then you should go into engineering or medicine But ever so often your heart will not be in it Essentially failure is not only good but a necessary stepping stone to success This book has helped me in deriving a sense of comfort from failure so that I ll be less afraid to try new things Historically all innovators experienced multiple failures till they found their breakthrough What continues to differentiate them from others is their ability to persevere during the failures the simple fact that they did not stop trying This book is also recommended by TED And now even I highly recommend it to anyone looking for some inspiration Happy reading

Read & Download à Creative Confidence Unleashing the Creative Potential Within Us All 107 Are the domain of the creative types  But two of the leading experts in innovation design and creativity on the planet show us that each and every  one of us is creative  In an incredibly entertaining and inspiring narrative that draws on countless stories from their work at IDEO the Stanford dschool and with many of the world's top c. I liked this book How could I not it s exactly my kind of thing design education problem solving creativity That sums up some of my favorite topics pretty neatly I am between rating the book a 3 and a 4 because it was indeed inspiring and thought provokingbut I just have a particular idea of how perfect the book SHOULD be and it isn t uiteTo give props where they are due there are lots of great stories in this book IDEO success stories D School success stories IDEO influenced success stories D School inspired success stories andrepeat I mean it s cool The stories are cool They are just very Let s talk about how awesome we are Indeed they are awesome There are few things I wouldn t do to be part of IDEO or to take classes at the D School Buuut no matter how fantastic they are I get pretty tired of people talking about themselvesThe Kelleys revealed at the end of the book that the way they outlined the book was using a hub and spoke mindweb and when they said it I just thought Ohhhh Cause really that s how the book felt Here is a core idea build a strong team Now here are 5 stories or examples that vaguely demonstrate the importance of teams and are otherwise largely unrelated to each other and don t make a larger persuasive point Maybe this was just my reading of the bookbut because of the way the book was laid out I didn t feel like I was being brought along on a journey that helped create some home hitting transformation in my thinking Which was what I wanted I guessI had also hoped there would be wisdom imparted More practical advice on what to do steps to take things to try A lot of the lessons that were concluded from the various narratives felt rather weak and contrived Yeah when you want to implant Creative Confidence in the culture of a company you should get the approval of upper management That is sound advice indeed Tell me There was a nice chapter at the end with a few simple creativity inducing exercises to try but I think I was looking for a handbook of creativity rather than a series of stories explaining the importance of creativity Does that distinction make senseAnyways It s true while reading I would read a few pages then become inspired to jot down creative new ideas then keep reading and jotting reading and jotting It provided fodder for my mind mill that otherwise would have been fodder less It was definitely an interesting book It s just I can t say it was particularly well written or that it taught me anything that another book on creativity couldn t Sorry this is a pretty all over the place review but I wanted to record my thoughts before my mind got lost to other distractions Overall read it if you are interested in IDEO and the D school and are looking for general inspiration I d maybe look elsewhere if you re looking for actionable advice on how to be creative
