Cultivating Your Creativity Can Improve Your Mind As You Age

It Can Also Make You a More Effective Therapist, According to Michael Gelb


Actively cultivating creative power can be a revelation. It changes our brains and our lives, and it can enhance our 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.

I asked Michael how this applies to our professional growth and development. It’s critical, Michael says, to focus first on the individual fulfillment and wholeness of the therapist. That means taking care of ourselves, strengthening and integrating the creative part of our brains with the linear, and learning new skills throughout our lives.

Equally important, according to Michael, is building our social capital, and he emphasizes the critical role of mentors and peer group participation in our ongoing quest to become better therapists.

    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!
