We’ve all said it: “If only I had ________, then I could do __________.”
We’re convinced that the only thing standing between us and our best work is more money, more time, more resources, more buy-in, a better team, a better boss, a better piece of software… the list goes on.
But the truth is, real creative work thrives within constraints.
True creative work exists in the gap between what you have and what you think you need. After all, if you had everything you needed, you wouldn’t need creativity at all.
True creativity showed up when the Apollo 13 astronauts had to make square filters fit round tubes. It showed up when a global pandemic made in-person work a liability. And it’ll show up for you too, once you let go of your misguided beliefs about what true creativity requires.
In this talk, Kyle will:
- Show how constraints are the breeding ground for creativity.
- Identify the difference between constructive constraint and restrictive contraint.
- Help reframe the constraints in your organization and find the solutions you’ve been searching for.
- Walk through tools and exercises to break through creative blocks.
