If we have learned anything from the past years, it’s how surprising and unexpected the future can be, and how quickly we need to come up with new solutions to daily challenges. Creativity unleashes the ability to conceive new ideas, so perhaps it’s no surprise that creativity is the most demanded skill in the world.
Yet 59% of the population think that they are not creative. But creativity is not some stroke of genius, we’re all born creative. It’s a cognitive function, and just like a muscle we can train it and become better at finding new solutions, and it is crucial that we do. By 2030, 1/5th of jobs will be replaced by AI, except those that rely on core human traits, such as creativity and imagination.
The reason that people don’t think that they are creative is due to a strong prevailing stigma that people are either born creative or not. Most people associate creativity with artistic skills but creativity is not some stroke of genius; we’re all born creative. It’s a cognitive function and just like a muscle, we can train it and become better at finding new solutions.
My research revealed three main pain points: people don’t have time to be creative, they don’t want to spend the time that they have on abstract “nonsense” that don’t directly apply to them and they feel like they are not good at it. However, creativity is not as abstract, nor complex as people are led to believe. There are scientifical ways to measure creativity. So how might we make creativity more tangible, whilst addressing the apparent gap between supply and demand?
