Creativity Paradox Creates New Value | Dimis Michaelides, Innovation Excellence

Michaelides describes at least six fascinating contradictions in what enables or causes people to be creative, to do creative things. I won't do justice to them by summarizing them here. Please read the blog.

But  Michaelides  writes:
As proponents of creative thinking and innovation practice we must learn to live with such and many more paradoxes of our subject matter. Our vocation is fraught with ambiguity and our capacity to accept many solutions to a problem is the very source of our insight.
And  Michaelides  concludes:
Innovators have no choice but to accept the contradictions and make the best of creative tension and ambiguity, for these are at the core of what brings new value to the world.
