Austin Hill Shaw's Wisdom 2.0 2014 People's Stage Submission.
Wisdom and creativity are two of the most universally appreciated attributes one can exhibit. They are also intimately related.
First, those who appear to exhibit wise or creative traits tend to lead richer, more fulfilling lives than their counterparts. Second, the development of wisdom and the active engagement of creative pursuits can lead to emotional, psychological, and spiritual maturation. Third, both wisdom and creativity are at the heart of innovations of all sorts, including innovative products, ideas, and ways of being. Fourth, understanding the essence of wisdom and how to access it unlocks key aspects of the creative process. Finally, certain conventional understandings of both wisdom and creativity can be limiting and actually hinder their full expression in individuals and organizations alike.
In this powerful, experiential presentation, we will explore wisdom and creativity together, unpacking what they are, how they're related, and how to activate them in your own life.
