This is a book not to be missed. Ken Robinson writes brilliantly about the different ways in which creativity is undervalued and ignored in Western culture and especially in our educational systems.’ JOHN CLEESE ‘Out of Our Minds explains why being creative in today’s world is a vital necessity.
ken Robinson has described three main themes which he considers in his book
- We live in times of revolution
- To survive we must think differently about our ability
- To harness this ability, we must have different organisations and especially a different education system.
the importance of culture in allowing creativity to flourish as well as how to lead or develop creative culture. Out of our minds is about how we can set ourselves and our children up for doing good work in organizations around the globe, thanks to leaving behind the old mass education model and unleashing our individual creativity
“It is often said that education and training are the keys to the future. They are, but a key can be turned in two directions. Turn it one way andyou lock resources away, even from those they belong to. Turn it the otherway and you release resources and give people back to themselves. To realizeour true creative potential—in our organizations, in our schools and in our communities—we need to think differently about ourselves and to actdifferently towards each other. We must learn to be creative.” – Ken Robinson.
