THE CREATIVE QUOTIENT ™

(UNLEASHING YOUR FULL CREATIVE POTENTIAL)

BY: ELLIOT LAURENCE KRAMER




These methods are for those who are compelled to be on the creative frontier and realize the importance of working together.

"YOU MUST GIVE BIRTH TO YOUR IMAGES. THEY ARE THE FUTURE
FEAR NOT THE STRANGENESS YOU FEEL. THE FUTURE MUST ENTER
YOU BEFORE IT HAPPENS. JUST WAIT FOR THE HOUR OF CLARITY."

Rainer Maria Rilke


Each of us has a certain Creative Quotient ™ or potential that can be developed further, with training. Although talent can help, a strong desire and knowledge can be more valuable.

Sometimes we tend to think that creativity is just the result of talent. But talent is like money you find on the street: “It's great when you find it, but don’t depend on it.” Enough desire and a clear method can foster great inspiration and take you further than just talent.



THE FOLLOWING TWO PRONGED APPROACH, DONE SIMULTANEOUSLY HAS BEEN PROVEN TO YIELD SIGNIFICANT MEASURABLE RESULTS.

FIRST: SELF EMPOWERMENT - Using a lighthearted approach, you will learn simple practical tools for self empowerment.

This will show you how to be flexible and willing to engage in new ways of thinking. You will take more creative risks and make significant internal changes normally hampered by imagined limitations.

SECOND: POWER SHARING – Through specific teamwork techniques, you will learn to facilitate groups without unduly asserting authority. This way we can all feel good about working together to foster significant global change.

(Too many times people reach a certain level of self empowerment and fall into an isolating trap of feeling that their methods are the only way and unless you have gone through their self empowerment methods you aren't self empowered yourself.)

Power sharing requires endowing others with their own self empowerment. This can be accomplished through the use of certain teamwork techniques.


You will find that these timeless methods have almost no age limitations, can show people how to work together positively in a team and demonstrate a comprehensive understanding of how to access their full creative potential.

You will learn how to virtually eliminate "creative blocks" and develop more flexibility and spontaneity.

Most of all, you can free yourself of self-judgment and learn to accept feedback which is essential for all originality.
