Creativity and imagination is becoming crucial skills for making it in the business world today.

We are seeing less and less of repetitive work and jobs were you simply wait around for instructions. If you want to make it in on today’s competitive job market, and even more in the future, you have to be able to take initiatives and think creatively. In Seth Godin’s book Linchpin he is arguing the importance in making yourself ‘indispensable”, becoming a ‘linchpin’.  “The linchpin is someone who can walk into chaos and create order, someone who can invent, connect, create, and make things happen. “

Back in 2010, IBM conducted a major study and asked 1500 CEO’s around the world. Questions: What was the single most important quality need to possess to be a successful leader going forward? The answer – Creativity!

Many claim that we are all born creative (just listen to a small child talk or observe the way they play), but that we are trained out of using our creativity through school and socialisation. But the creativity is not gone. It is just hidden somewhere deep inside you, behind your fear of being wrong, making a fool of yourself and standing out.

“Creativity takes courage- Henri Matisse
