As most of you know, I’m a true systems guy. But not many people think of creativity as something that can have a system. Most assume that it’s something that “hits” you out of nowhere instead of something that you can plan out. However, there is a way to develop a process for creative problem-solving.

Making creativity a systematic part of your life and business is invaluable. After all, what the world really needs is creativity leaders, not thought leaders. The people who truly change businesses and the world are disruptors- they create new dots that connect to the dots that already exist. Once you combine your analytical mind and your creative mind, you’ll be able to see new ideas through to fruition.

To dive deeper into the idea of creating systems for creativity, I’ve brought on founder and CEO of OpenGenius, Chris Griffiths. He has helped thousands of people worldwide drive business growth using highly practical innovation processes, including teams and individuals from Fortune 500 and FTSE 100 companies, the United Nations, Governments, the European Commission and Nobel Laureates. He is a pioneer in combining creative thinking strategies with technology to enhance productivity and is behind the iMindMap and DropTask apps, now utilized by over two million people worldwide.
