“One of the essential ingredients of high performing individuals, teams and organisations is creativity. To be creative means releasing talent and imagination. It also means the ability to take risks and, in some cases, necessitates standing outside the casual or accepted frames of reference.  

Creative people push the boundaries; they seek new ways of seeing, interpreting, understanding and questioning.  They thrive in circumstances which others might see as chaotic and orderly.’

Thank you to Ronald Stones OBE for his facilitation of the symposium, ‘The Art of Creative Leadership’ which challenged my thinking and provided ideas for so many think-pieces.”
