The Crime: Is Creative Thinking Dying? – (Keynote)

What blocks and enhances your creative thinking for better solutions faster.

An IBM survey of over 1500 CEOs has revealed that creative thinking skills are the greatest attribute needed for leaders in the next 5 years. And yet research has shown that while IQ has been on the rise, since 1990 creative thinking (CQ) has been rapidly declining. Whilst 98 % of children are ranked as “geniuses” in divergent thinking, by adulthood this number has dropped to a mere 2%.

THIS SESSION takes the participants on a journey from the classroom to the boardroom, helping them understand the current creative thinking crisis. It looks at the implications in the workplace of a number of dramatic statistics, and shows how it is possible to rise above these stats and develop a creative and innovative culture.
At the end of this session participants will be able to identify the importance of developing creative thinking.
