Harnessing the power of creativity to improve profitability,increase sales and give meaning to your work.

Nir Bashan is a world-renowned creativity expert. He has taught thousands of leaders and individuals around the globe how to harness the power of creativity to improve profitability, increase sales, and ultimately create more meaning in their work. Over the course of his work history, he observed a commonality among successful people, who excel at problem solving with fresh ideas.

After searching for a handbook or manual on creativity and coming up empty, finding the creative people he approached reluctant to share; Nir Bashan embarked on a seven-year journey to codify creativity.

Nuggets mined from today’s show:

Nir defines creativity as the missing spark of innovation.

While others are developing and marketing solutions such as making masks and shields. How brick and mortar businesses can be more creative: restaurants are providing produce along with take-out food orders, clothiers are giving customers multiple different items to try on at home, etc. When you ask the question how to be different, options open up.
