WithBrad Hokanson
Pages 4

The first thing that is important is learners' own belief and commitment to becoming more creative. Everyone is creative, and recognizing learner’s own creativity helps them be more creative. Research by Robert Sternberg and others shows that people who believe they are creative actually are more creative. There are other things that can be part of learners' regular life that indirectly help them be more creative. Effort at learning both information and skills can pay rewards, and creativity can be increased. One should have an ongoing broad exposure to other ideas and areas. Having good ideas is one thing, but getting those ideas accepted and put to use is an important part of the entire process. Within the field, this is considered innovation, the adoption and dissemination of new and useful ideas; without this part, few ideas will have an impact.
