Demistify Creativity - (3 of 3)

Myth #3 - I can’t turn on creativity when I want.



Well, that’s probably really close to the truth. No one likes to sit in a meeting when someone says…”OK, let’s all come up with some ideas on how to sell this broken glass to babies“. It seems as if the second you’re in a creative meeting…the creativity gets killed in a Blend-Tec. Why is that?
