Some Fundamentals of the Creative Process and the Transfer into Real Life Innovations
»Create the necessary or desired changes.«
With this comprehensive introduction, you have the know-how to use your creative resources at a full extent.
Prof. Csikszentmihalyi has shown that the happy, harmonious moments of our lives take place in a relatively narrow space between the large field of overload on the one hand and the large field of routine and boredom on the other.
If we have the first conversations with participants of our seminars or with coaching clients, they usually find themselves in one of the two areas: either they are burdened by permanent stress or they have fallen into a routine characterized by growing unpleasant boredom.
Change is the order of the day, but it is easier said than done. How do you find a practical way out, the right solution in the current life situation? Putting one's head in the sand would mean renouncing one's liveliness. To dare something new requires not only courage but also a knowledge of finding possible solutions, the mobilization of one's creative resources.
The mechanical use of creativity techniques is not enough. They make sense, but only when we understand why, when, and how we use them. We are therefore beginning today with a series of contributions with which we want to decipher the secret of creativity - at least to the extent that it is possible according to the current state of knowledge. The level of scientific knowledge about the emergence of new ideas is still relatively low. However, in recent decades, researchers have at least found out a great deal about what promotes creativity and, above all, what limits or even blocks it. Some useful conclusions can be drawn from this. For example, our contributions are intended to build a bridge between the findings of research and the implementation of them day by day in our professional and private lives.
