Don’t wait for a Muse to find you. Creativity can be enhanced by strengthening certain skills and practices. I’ll review eight skills and methods that support them. The skills are: ASKING (finding the right questions), LOOKING (seeing freshly and making the invisible, visible), THINKING (generating and capturing ideas), LEARNING (gathering more information), PLAYING (freeing your mind), FUSING (combining ideas), and MAKING (externalizing ideas). We’ll go over the scientific research (Sawyer and Csikszentmihalyi) and I’ll present exercises.
