To be creative or innovative can be described as being original, expressive, inventive, imaginative, ground-breaking, or someone who generates new ideas. However, you can only truly be creative if you have an alternative or different perspective from others. In this sense, creativity isn’t just for creative “types”. Any person can exhibit it, just by having a new or different view.
You have the opportunity to translate your unique personal perspectives and views of the world into new ideas and concepts that might be useful to you and to others. You can help other people to think beyond their existing mental boundaries or provide fresh insights that can take their thinking to entirely new planes.
This Skill Builder looks at how you can strengthen your ability to be creative.
