Did you know that dealing creatively with problems could be your way to developing intuition, healing relationships, empowering your organization, evolving the brain to a new level and bring total transformation in your life?
Problems, according to conventional ways of thinking, are obstacles to a goal. We learn to live with the unsolved ones which grow into the crises which dominate our lives. Creative thinking reverses this order and alters our perception of a difficult situation. A problem becomes a challenge and then, an opportunity. Consider this; one company in the USA had spent millions of dollars to develop a multipurpose adhesive which turned out to be a failure, as it would peel off. They turned this failure into an opportunity in the post-it pads. These yellow little squares of paper can be stuck and peeled off for reuse. Creative thinking alone sees such opportunities.
When I first developed and applied the Creative Problem Solving (CPS) process in 2003 as a worhshop leader on a Entreprenuership Mindset Development Workshop for NSIC, it was mainly for the industry, distribution system, plantations and government. Three years later, I refined it further during my consultancy work with diverse organizations and, teaching Entrepreneurship in Management Schools like IIMC and ISB&M. Though originally intended only for solving problems, over the years I discovered its tremendous power to transform individuals and organizations.
It's based on a principle thought which was stated so beautifully below.
