Is creativity a gift or a skill? Are certain people naturally more creative than others? Can a person work on becoming creative?

In the TED Talks below, three of the world’s most important creative leaders give their version – and their verdict – of what creativity means and things one should do to get there.

1- Tim Brown: Tales of Creativity and Play

“At the 2008 Serious Play conference, designer Tim Brown talks about the powerful relationship between creative thinking and play — with many examples you can try at home (and one that maybe you shouldn’t).” (source: ted.com) 

 

2- David Kelley: How to Build Your Creative Confidence

“Is your school or workplace divided between the “creatives” versus the practical people? Yet surely, David Kelley suggests, creativity is not the domain of only a chosen few. Telling stories from his legendary design career and his own life, he offers ways to build the confidence to create. (From The Design Studio session at TED2012, guest-curated by Chee Pearlman and David Rockwell.)” (source: ted.com)

 

3- Elizabeth Gilbert: Your Elusive Creative Genius

“Elizabeth Gilbert muses on the impossible things we expect from artists and geniuses — and shares the radical idea that, instead of the rare person “being” a genius, all of us “have” a genius. It’s a funny, personal and surprisingly moving talk.”  (source: ted.com)
