I wrote my first LinkedIn group post today: Why is a Raven like a Writing Desk: a not-so-Mad path to Leadership Creativity. The post, in the Harvard Business Review group, points back to this site, specifically this page: http://ow.ly/B3oIZ. It’s essentially an exercise to help people learn to connect two dissimilar things in order to create something new. I walk through my own practice session that resulted in a poem. Take a look and let me know what you think, particularly if you are in a leadership role. You may find the “Entertain Children” activity useful if you have kids.
I hope you enjoy it!
