Innovation and creativity are nearly always mentioned today as key to the future. Sir Ken Robinson, an internationally recognized leader in the development of creativity and innovation, has a definition of creativity that really resonates for me - creativity is the process of generating original ideas and insights that have value. He and other psychologists note that all humans have multiple capacities for creativity. Furthermore, creativity is less about genetic inheritance than it is about appropriate environment. While some individuals may seem to have a greater genetic capacity than others, most people have a degree of creative capacity in several areas. Finally, any individual can be creative in one environment, but not in another. Environmental factors (fear of failure, perfectionism, need for peer acceptance, resource limitations, time pressure, etc.) may play an important role in enhancing or suppressing creative behavior.
