This is just what I hoped it would be!! I’ve had parts of these processes in my troubleshooting tool box, but not all of them. This Masterclass has helped me identify the components needed as well as the rationale fir each one. I’ve been able to apply this to a challenge I’ve had at work for months! Now to implement then evaluate. A huge step forward from frozen and ignoring it!

Learning about the Universal Creative Process is lifechanging. As someone who was involved in the innovation consulting space, but now a regular human being, I can attest to its power. In my relationships with work, others and even myself, applying creative principles has given me a toolbox to effectively negotiate the sticky situations of life. Whether you are looking to be more effective at work, see investment opportunities and risks that others miss, or even just assess your own emotional reactions and responses, learning the universal creative process, and the inhibitors to creativity and innovation from Bob Eckert will VASTLY help you. Tame the gator my friends.

What a great teacher - Bob has the gift of making things clear. I have used these techniques over and over again and they truly do help shift our thinking from "what's wrong with this world" into "what can I and we do about making things a bit better in all of this"? The tools fit - whether at-work or at-home. I hope there is a Volume II of this series. I bought the book to get a bit more info.
