We often see creative people as larger than life. People like Elon Musk, Maya Angelou, and Leonardo Da Vinci seem to have achieved a level of genius that is beyond anything we could ever imagine.
Creativity is a critical facet of any organization, yet we are told it’s something that a special few are gifted with. But what if there was a way to change your thoughts to become more creative? Thinking outside of the box is an invaluable skill, and today’s guest will show you how to harness your inner creative genius.
Larry Robertson is the bestselling author of A Deliberate Pause: Entrepreneurship and it’s Moment in Human Progress, and The Language of Man: Learning to Speak Creatively and founder of Lighthouse Consulting.
