Interviews on Creative Leadership, Creativity and Innovation

A history of interviews with leaders by The Creative Leadership Forum, our associates and other media.



Bring On the Learning Revolution with Sir Ken Robinson

Why don't we get the best out of people? Sir Ken Robinson argues that it's because we've been educated to become good workers, rather than creative thinkers. Students with restless minds and bodies -- far from being cultivated for their energy and curiosity -- are ignored or even stigmatized, with terrible consequences. "We are educating people out of their creativity," Robinson says. It's a message with deep resonance. Robinson's TEDTalk has been distributed widely around the Web since its release in June 2006. His latest book, The Element: How Finding Your Passion Changes Everything, a deep look at human creativity and education, was published in January 2009 to lukewarm reviews. This video sees a return to form to a topic he is clearly passionate about : education. .

The History of TED and How It Operated for 22 Years as a Closed System

This is a fascinating presentation on the development of a contemporary learning experience and its global evolution. Let's track it for the next decade. My prediction is that it will decrease in intellectual rigour and value and become a regular up-market speakers bureau.

The Tools of Creativity Have Been Democratised - Ray Kurzweil Interview

Ray Kurzweil, a visionary futurist and one of the world's leading inventors, explains how the tools of creativity have been democratized and describes the tremendous impact that has had on society and innovation.

Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love discusses nurturing creativity.

Elizabeth Gilbert in a wonderful presentation talks about the importance of nurturing creativity in all its forms and how we have viewed creativity and those who we perceive are the creators!! We do accept creativity is not magical but it does require us to understand to be creative we need to dive deeply with ourselves and when we do that we experience discomfort, even madness, at times. Nevertheless, it is vital we are allowed to experience this sense of self and all of us accept this is a vital life force. Really lovely interview.
