Out of our minds : learning to be creative by Ken Robinson( Book )
39 editions published between 2001 and 2013 in 3 languages and held by 1,430 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
There is a paradox. As children, most of us think we are highly creative; as adults many of us think we are not. What changes as children grow up? Organizations across the globe are competing in a world that is changing faster than ever. They say they need people who can think creatively, who are flexible and quick to adapt. Too often they say they can't find them. Why not? In this provocative and inspiring book Ken Robinson addresses three questions: [1] Why is it essential to promote creativity? Business leaders, politicians and educators emphasize the vital importance of promoting creativity and innovation. Why does it matter so much? [2] What is the problem? Why do so many people think they are not creative? Young children are buzzing with ideas. What happens as we grow up and go through school to make us think we are not creative? [3] What can be done about it? What is creativity? What can companies, schools and organizations do to develop creativity and innovation in a deliberate and systematic way? In this extensively revised and updated version of his bestselling classic, Out of Our Minds, Ken Robinson offers a groundbreaking approach to understanding creativity in education and in business. He argues that people and organizations everywhere are dealing with problems that originate in schools and universities and that many people leave education with no idea at all of their real creative abilities. Out of Our Minds is a passionate and powerful call for radically different approaches to leadership, teaching and professional development to help us all to meet the extraordinary challenges of living and working in the 21st century. -- taken from dust jacket

It provides a narrative for how to live a fully realized life, or as Campbell would simply state, 'follow your bliss.' The film takes us on an inspirational quest of self-discovery.

"¿Qué tienen en común Matt Groening, el creador de Los Simpsons, el empresario Richard Branson, y la periodista Arianna Huffington? Más allá de su enorme éxito profesional, todos son personas que muestran una extraordinaria pasión por lo que hacen y que han encontrado lo que Ken Robinson denomina su elemento, es decir, el lugar donde la persona hace aquello que realmente quiere hacer y donde es quien siempre ha querido ser. Ken Robinson consigue en este libro transmitir la importancia de encontrar ese punto, motiva al lector a buscarlo y le recuerda que nunca es tarde para alcanzarlo. El elemento es un libro especialmente necesario en unos momentos en los que el éxito parece medirse exclusivamente mediante parámetros económicos, porque nos demuestra que la clave reside en hacer especialmente bien aquello que nos apasiona."--P.
