The world needs more innovative thinkers and leaders. Here’s how to become one of them.
Popular culture tends to place people in categories: Creative or Not. Innovative or Not. But the world’s greatest innovators and creative thinkers don’t do what they do by magic. There are patterns in the way they think. And by understanding them, any one of us can become a more breakthrough thinker and problem-solver ourselves.
So in this session, we’re going to break down the science of “lateral thinking” and how to use it ourselves—even if you don’t think of yourself as particularly creative.
Then we’ll dig into the hidden psychology that prevents smart people from using lateral thinking, and we’ll explore how the science of “intellectual humility” can help us to overcome common obstacles to innovative problem-solving.
You’ll leave with a framework for how to use lateral thinking in your own work and life—plus a tool for increasing your ability to think more flexibly in general.
