Cultivating Your Creativity Can Make You More Effective

Creativity expert, Michael Gelb, on 4 simple practices that can help you become a better therapist

Actively cultivating creative power can be a revelation. It changes your brain, your outlook, your perception, and your problem-solving ability. It can also enhance your work in the consulting room. That’s the opinion of Michael Gelb, world’s leading authority on the application of genius thinking to personal and organizational development. It’s critical, Michael says, for therapists to attend to their own individual fulfillment and wholeness. That means taking care of ourselves, strengthening and integrating the creative part of our brains with the linear, learning new skills, and building our social capital. In this short video, Michael explains four simple practices that can help you on your way.

    I was so, so inspired by the talk with Michael Gelb!

    While i absorbed such a wealth of infirmation helpful to my personal life and to those whom i serve, I’d like to make a comment about your references to religion -spiritualality. I am a spiritual director in the Christian tradition where meditation and contemplative or centering prayer is being practiced and people are reaping the benefits. I just wondered if you would consider including Christianity as one of the religions which practices meditation as well so people can explore the depths of whichever tradition with which they are affiliated and reap these powerful, life-changing benefits! Your talk was truly wonderful! Thank you!
