Play is the highest form of research.

Artists and business leaders share many strategies. Both begin with a vision and goals, then work through the unsettling and unpredictable to generate a new concept, service or product. When facilitated with lightheartedness, a group art making adventure is reminiscent of a treasure hunt and a natural collaboration and bonding occurs.

Upon reflection on their playful undertaking, everyone’s role and participation provide clarity on our unique perceptions and experiences, and how each contributes to the whole.

Art teaches us about risk, courage, empathy, elusiveness, contradictions, and the creative process; it supplies building blocks that are easily applicable to business. Plus, it’s fun!

Often thought as a waste of time, rest and playfulness are bypassed; yet, play is the bedrock for creativity and rejuvenation which fuels our imagination with new ways of looking at things because it gives us space to tap into our unconscious.

Creativity is a core competency for leaders and managers, and a crucial component of the innovation equation. It requires whole-brain thinking; right-brain ingenuity, artistry and intuition, plus left-brain logic and planning.

Creativity is essential because it is at the heart of innovation, and innovation is a growth driver, therefore, a business imperative. Speaking in metaphors, images exemplify beliefs and paradigms that

  • Help individuals and teams get out of mental ruts
  • Incite greater problem solving skills through holistic thinking
  • Assist focus and communication
  • Foster integration of work-life balance and wellness

Primary sources of creativity are paradox, disruption and imbalance - things organizations fear most. This hasn’t stopped 3M, Frito-Lay, and Texas Instruments; they have introduced systematic creativity activities into their training and production processes with outstanding results. 
Frito-Lay, reported documented cost savings over a four-year period of almost $600 million due to their creativity training programs. Morrison, 1997 - cited in 101 Activities for Teaching Creativity and Problem Solving, by Arthur VanGundy, 2005

Too often we find ourselves overly busy and disconnected to who we truly are.
As we get overwhelmed we lose our delight and ingenuity; the very skills that we need to be creative in our lives.
