Creative Leadership & Artificial Intelligence creating a more comprehensive and responsive healthcare system.
"Creative Leadership is not a leadership strategy. It is a transformational process in which individuals tap into their innate creativity, and the potential to lead themselves and others towards fulfilling the goals and vision of the organization or project."
"C.L." offers a coordinated method to address the needs of a multidisciplinary team at the center of Health Tech Artificial Intelligence development, creating a more comprehensive and responsive healthcare system.
The creative leadership purpose is the development and assessment of AI technologies, as well as ensuring that the roadmap attributes and people resources are in place and integrated within the business plan.
The three Creative Leadership attributes – Empathy, Clarity, and Creativity – can guide decision-making regarding the group design solution, from a set of particular new technological and economic considerations, leaders have opportunities to collaborate with each other on a challenging task within the subject area.
Creative thinking involves the discovery of novel connections and is therefore tied intimately to learning. It reflects our capacity to generate ideas that are original, unusual, or novel in some way. The second element is that these ideas also need to be satisfying, appropriate, or suited to the context in question.
Arthur Koestler pointed this out rather beautifully several decades ago: “Creative activity is a type of learning process where the teacher and pupil are located in the same individual.”
When we’re thinking with our whole brain, and devote our full creative power to a situation or problem, we see possibility where others see limitations. One friend once told me: “When most people stand on a beach and look out to the sea at the horizon, they see the end. I see the beginning.” Creativity gives us the power of interpretation!
The Neuroscience of Creativity
Neuroscience is currently exploring what it is that characterizes creative minds. Researchers at Harvard recently identified a pattern of brain connectivity that is associated with idea generation. In their study, people were put in a brain scanner and asked to come up with novel uses for everyday objects, such as a sock, soap, or chewing gum wrapper. Some people were crowded with everyday, unimaginative uses, and found it hard to filter these out, so we're likely to answer with the obvious examples, such as covering feet, blowing bubbles, or containing gum. Highly original thinkers, in contrast, showed strong connectivity between three networks of the brain (mind wandering, focused thinking, and selective attention), when they were thinking and came up with out-of-the-box ideas, such as a water filtration system, a seal for envelopes, and an antenna wire.
We may be trying to be creative when tasked to do so but this is not the same as being creative.
Exercise your creativity like a muscle:
To be creative we need to develop a certain level of confidence in our right to express our unique take on things; to value our ideas and interpretations. Give ourselves permission to open up and play with lots of potential ideas and possibilities.
Mindfulness is a technique that allows the individual to perceive more and more subtle details of the stream of consciousness and mental processes raining aims at “non-conceptual awareness,” which involves a reduced inﬂuence of habitual verbal–conceptual processes on the interpretation of ongoing experience.
It increases interhemispheric communication, which is typical of creativity states.
Mind-wandering focused thinking, and selective attention can all be strengthened with practice. Giving yourself the time and space to think without distraction can lead to new ideas and perspectives. This is the benefit of actively allowing mind wandering. By consciously bringing our desires, hopes, and dreams to the forefront of our mind, our brain will be able to home in more effectively on opportunities that will lead to the outcomes we want. This is focused thinking and can be achieved through action boards and visualization.
"A prototype is an experiment built to test a design hypothesis."
There is a practice called “rapid prototyping” which suggests generating as many ideas as possible, relegating the ones that don’t work to“try again in the future or a different scenario” list, and not stopping until we come up with the one that works perfectly for now.
So often we filter out thoughts that don’t fit our immediate purpose and we may unconsciously think that feels “off-beam” or ridiculous, but in freeing ourselves up to think a broader range of thoughts we enable action.
