Teams shouldn't be bigger than that can eat from two pizzas. They should all bring unique perspectives. There should be a warm up exercise to get participants into more of creative thinking.
It should end with participants voting on best ideas. Move it Fast and Break it: Even though Zuckerberg has changed this motto. Few examples are Instagram and Chegg story. Or, how blogger Elise Bauer found her calling. Ideas on classroom exercises: Failure Faire workshop: Marshmallow on top is another chapter I liked. Lot of other stuff is written in self-help style and is skim and miss.
I'll add more things in list above if I remember more that caught my attention. Jul 21, Mavromou rated it it was amazing. Es un libro escrito con palabras simples pero conceptos poderosos que motiva e inspira a motivar a otros. De lectura obligatoria para profesores. It is a very interesting book, easy to read, and motivational. Tina explains with simple examples and concepts the relationship between three personal variables, which she takes from Bloom and three context variables by doing what she calls the "machine of innovation".
A Moebius tape containing these six variables that are interrelated with each other and in pairs to understand the creative process in a simple way. It is an interesting perspective, and that leaves the structure of the 4P of creativity although names its elements but instead of treating them separately shows the relationship between them.
Tina also tells of her different experiences, her travels, her teaching practices at Stanford, among others. It is a book written with simple words but powerful concepts that motivates and inspires to motivate others. Compulsory reading for teachers. Jul 06, EunSeong Hwang rated it really liked it. I really enjoyed this book. It has the tone of one of those conversational, self-help books if you like that sort of thing , and some of the things suggested or stated in the book seems obvious, like gamifying things and making things fun so you actually complete necessary but mundane tasks, constraints leading to more creative results rather than hindering them, or how the physical layout of our environment can affect our behaviours and thoughts.
However, Tina Seelig backs up what we take for I really enjoyed this book. However, Tina Seelig backs up what we take for granted with research rather than us just accepting things at face value, making them more persuasive should you decide to conscientiously follow through on any of the suggestions she gives. She gives practical and helpful advice on how to brainstorm, what innovative companies do to improve and increase teamwork and creativity, and what she's found out in her own classroom.
It was written in an easy-to-digest way, and what she wrote bears repeating. Overall, I thought it was a solid, practical, helpful book you could breeze through if you're stuck on a project or need some well-grounded ways to enhance your creativity or productivity. Mar 05, Trisha rated it liked it. However, that is MOSTLY what this book is about, creativity within a group or cumulative creativity based on other people's creative work and while that's a completely valid creative process, this book doesn't really deal with individual originality.
I understand that creativity is a nebulous concept that doesn't have cut and "A crash course on creativity I understand that creativity is a nebulous concept that doesn't have cut and dry definitions and this book covers ONE avenue to originality very well, however, I would recommend that true students of creativity ALSO read "The Artists Way" by Julia Cameron, "Imagine" by Jonah Lehrer and "Originals" by Adam Grant in order to have a more well-rounded view of the subject.
Mar 17, Emily Irish rated it liked it. This book is a good introduction to the core principles of creativity. It provides a pretty quick, easy read while still managing to impart interesting anecdotes and important principles. However, it's very short on applicability. There are few concrete guides forward. If you're looking for help in becoming more creative, this book can provide a good foundation of thought, but it won't give you an idea of where to go next.
It's also largely focused on teams, with very little directly said about f This book is a good introduction to the core principles of creativity. It's also largely focused on teams, with very little directly said about fostering individual creativity although you can extrapolate those lessons.
All in all, I don't regret reading it, and think it will be worth the page read for most people to provide that foundational mindset. Just don't go into it expecting your life to be changed. Oct 20, Jeff Bobin rated it it was amazing Shelves: This book kept coming up on my recommended reading lists I look at from a number of different disciplines and now I know why.
Every organization must be continually reevaluating what they do and how they do it if they want to remain relevant.
I am always looking for something that will help me look at what I am doing and see if there is a better way. One of the interesting parts of this book was that she talks about tools that I have used in creativity exercises but in a different way that I hav This book kept coming up on my recommended reading lists I look at from a number of different disciplines and now I know why.
One of the interesting parts of this book was that she talks about tools that I have used in creativity exercises but in a different way that I haven't thought about before.
That is creativity. If you are looking to improve yourself or an organization you work with and need something to provoke new ways of thinking this relatively short and easy to read book is worth the time.
Feb 17, Erika Molyneux rated it it was ok. Took me awhile to get through this one. Started out useful with some suggestions to open your mind. Then it was just examples of thing being put to use. Best take a ways are to reframe the question or challenge if you are struggling to come up with a solution.
Practice opening your mind by creating something with two unrelated objects. Apr 04, Linda rated it liked it. Seelig references lots of already published examples of creativity in use.
However, as it does not spend much time describing the examples it may not be an engaging read. Nov 25, Sharon rated it really liked it Shelves: A useful introduction to creativity but nothing new. Maybe, it is book that more people in education should read. A book for the 21st century and the kind of mindset that is now required. Quick, easy read, informative but nothing new.
Oct 01, Selina rated it liked it. I liked the reflection on how time constraints promote productivity, how our attitudes can determine if we are the kind that see opportunities as opposed to road blocks, and how we shouldn't be afraid of failure or breaking things, just to find ways to fix them.
Oct 17, Farrell rated it liked it. I watched the talk she gives first, then was inspired to read the book. It's basically the same so I decided to stop reading. But I find the talk interesting.

Hardcover Verified Purchase. I've just finished reading Tina Seelig's "InGenius" and the best compliment I can pay it is that it has changed me, "supercharged" me and provided me with inspiration, motivation and - best of all - it has helped me find creative answers to specific innovation challenges I had been working on for some time. Her model of the Innovation Engine with its six components culture, attitude, imagination, resources, knowledge, habitat is brilliant. When you think of the process of innovation in this way, you realize how critical each component is.
In a proper engine, each part is necessary but not sufficient - take one small valve or bearing out and the engine grinds to a halt. But in most environments that want to foster innovation and creativity, we often see several components that are inadequate or missing altogether - which explains why so many such efforts are unsuccessful.
As she elaborates on the engine model, she covers tools that are probably familiar to people who have an interest in creativity and innovation. However, as she did with the engine model, she analyzes how and why these tools work and, more importantly, how they are often mis-used. Her section on brainstorming is a perfect example.
Most people think they understand how to run a brainstorming session, but they really don't; they just collect a random bunch of people in a room often a room unsuitable for the purpose and start tossing ideas out in a free-for-all frenzy. Tina summarizes the "rules" of brainstorming clearly and succinctly, and in a way that will probably make you realize that most of the brainstorming sessions in which you have participated were, at best, poor and pale imitation of what really effective and efficient brainstorming should be like.
I could tell you more, but I don't want to spoil the pleasure and insights you'll get by reading "InGenius" yourself. As I mentioned at the beginning of this review, "InGenius" changed and energized me. I read it over two mornings and, while reading, I found myself taking many notes and furiously writing down ideas.
When a book permanently and substantively changes the way you view things - your long-term perspective - while giving you immediately applicable insights, advice and tools, you can't ask for more.

Tina Lynn Seelig Publisher: New York: It is as natural as breathing, and just as necessary for leading a successful and fulfilling life. Creative solutions are required because the status quo is never good enough, and our goal should always be to push beyond the limits of what seems possible.
Great ideas are needed to solve all the problems we face and to enrich our lives.
inGenius by Tina Seelig (ebook)
Whether it is in the conference room, classroom, or kitchen, new ideas open up a world of wonderful possibilities. With the tools presented in the following chapters, we will learn how to pull out all stops to take on the challenges, big and small, that come our way, and to see that every word, every idea, and every moment provides an opportunity for creativity that will enhance our lives.
The following chapters are filled with concepts, tools, techniques, and stories that reveal ways you can increase your creativity quotient, and that of your groups and organizations. The first half of the book focuses on the inside out - what you can personally do to increase your own creative aptitude and attitude. The second half deals with the outside in - how you can change the local and cultural environment to increase the creativity quotient of your community.
