Creativity, the door to good times and good business.

26 Sep

Scott Cook, the founder of Intuit who is also on the board of directors at eBay and Procter & Gamble, is all about unleashing human potential. If you haven’t noticed, so are we.

Economist Ideas Economy, Scott Cook

At The Economist’s Ideas Economy Conference, Cook discussed how human potential in the U.S. has waned. According to recent surveys, about 70% of American workers are not engaged: 20% are actively disengaged, and 50% are not particularly committed. This is bad for the disengaged employee, and for the disrepaired business.

Cook advocates, “The way to put human potential on steroids is rapid experimentation. Got an idea? Okay, what are the hypotheses underpinning that idea, and how can we rapidly test one or more of them?” This is what Drawing Down the Vision and drawing ideas out can help you and your team do. So, how can you get started?

We’ve learned in our workshops how scared most self-proclaimed non-creatives are of the blank paper and wet pen. Help make everyone comfortable and you’ll unleash the team’s true potential.

Let us know how things go!

Testimonial: Mark Lloyd, Systems Manager

Drawing Down the Vision was an excellent workshop with practical, real-world examples.  Adam and Amy shared their experiences and facilitated well developed exercises to enhance my learning.  Because of this workshop, I am better able to recognize when a picture or visualization could be more impactful.  This leads to better engagement and clearer understanding by others.

Presenting at the Arts Enterprise National Conference

02 Aug

AE. Arts Enterprise. The Art of Business. The Business of Art.

Amy and I are honored to be presenting at the Arts Enterprise National Conference on February 19-21, 2011 in Kansas City, MO.

The primary goal of the conference is to help more national chapters get started. The secondary goal is for businesses such as Procter & Gamble, Apple, Google, Disney, Dreamworks and other to connect with bright students who work at the intersection of art and business – what we’re all about!

If you recall, we originally connected with Nate Zeisler, the co-Founder and Executive Director of Arts Enterprise, discussing  promoting diversity of thought. Nate is doing an awesome job organizing the event and pulling all the national chapters together.

Comment below if we can look forward to helping you start an Arts Enterprise Chapter at your school or connect your business with Arts Enterprise!
