This e-book has been specifically developed to gather together the essential information needed for coaching creativity. It includes quotes on creativity and a range of tools and techniques you can use when coaching others or for your own personal development.
Creativity is a phenomenon whereby something somehow new and somehow valuable is formed. The thing being created may be intangible like ideas, a scientific theory, a musical composition, or even a joke. They may also be physical objects like an invention, a printed literary work, or a painting.
The dictionary definition of creativity is:
“The use of imagination or original ideas to create something; inventiveness.”
But all of us, no matter what our line of business or where we live, will at some point be required to adapt and adjust to new situations. So as a coach, cultivating your own creativity means giving yourself the opportunity to always stay curious and alert. So, when a strange idea springs to mind or something unusual happens, try giving the door a gentle nudge to open it a little more, instead of letting it slam shut.
There may be situations where you as a coach feel a particular coaching tool or technique would work well, however it is always important to note that not every client will be willing to try something different. It is always helpful to ask for the client’s permission to introduce something new and give them a choice. That way, the client remains in control and is able to decide what would work best for them. Remember, being creative does not come easily to everybody.
