For anyone who wants to create or innovate - this is the interview for you.
When we think about creativity, we most often think of things: impressionism, the iPhone, democracy, Uber. We also narrow in on the few, those rare creators who seem to have something we lack. These tendencies quickly take us off track, perpetuating a myth and unknowingly pushing us further away from the possible.
Here’s the truth: Creativity is about the possible. It’s the seed of any human advancement ever made or yet to be imagined. Most important and powerful of all, creativity is a uniquely human capacity that each of us possesses – including you.
The story of creativity is the story of who we are, a story still unfolding. It’s time we come to understand it and learn how each of us can contribute our verse. It’s time we understand this language of man and learn to speak creativity.
In this episode, award-winning author Larry Robertson discusses precisely what that means, and how we do it. We also learn how a deliberate pause can help spark true growth and progress.
Larry is the 8-time award-winning author of A Deliberate Pause: Entrepreneurship and its Moment in Human Progress as well as his brand new book, The Language of Man: Learning to Speak Creativity. He is also the founder of two ventures, one for profit and one not for profit. He is a highly respected thought leader in creativity, innovation, and entrepreneurship. Larry is a graduate of Stanford University and Northwestern University's Kellogg School of Management, and a former Adjunct Professor of Entrepreneurship at Georgetown University's McDonough School of Business.
