“That opting out [of creativity] that happens in childhood … moves in and becomes more ingrained by the time you get to adult life.” (David Kelley)
David Kelley’s company IDEO helped create many icons of the digital generation — but what matters even more to him is unlocking the creative potential of people and organizations to innovate routinely. David Kelley suggests, creativity is not the domain of only a chosen few.
Nurturing The Creative Mind Of Our Future Innovators.
There is a concept known as 'beginner’s mind' which is said to be an attitude of openness, eagerness and lack of preconceptions, very similar to that of a child.
This site explores the 'beginner's mind' creative abilities of children at play and the connection to design thinkers and innovators.
Children are open to exploration, discovery and experimentation. They learn about their world around them by pushing the limits, discovering what’s possible and what’s not.
Children are hard-wired to be creative, imaginative and innovative- abilities that often diminish along the way.
Maybe we can better understand these inherent creative skills during play and learning, to help us encourage and support a new breed of innovative thinkers more prepared to solve future challenges of our world.
