Creativity Supercharger has been carefully designed for those who want to increase creativity and bring it to its fullest potential.  The course is for those who seek to understand creativity so that they can apply it to their work and their lives.  Its for those individuals who want to be creative and innovative in their fields.

Whether you're interested in creative writing or game design, painting or scientific advancements, filmmaking or app creation, music or medicine, this course is designed to show you how to unleash your creative genius and be able to apply it to your specific work.

Whatever your ambitions are, creativity can help you get there.  Developing and enhancing your creative skills can bring great benefits to all areas of your work and your life.  Innovation in any area is accomplished through creativity.  Our ability to make progress is defined by our creativity.

What are the most powerful principles that unleash creativity and creative power?  This course covers them.

Creativity is the use of the imagination to bring something new into existence, to invest with new form, to find a solution to problems that had no such solution before.  Creativity is characterized by originality, expressiveness, and imagination.  And — creativity is problem solving.

It’s crossing the boundary between what we know and what we have yet to understand.  It’s about seeing from new perspectives.  To quote Edward De Bono:  “Creativity involves breaking out of established patterns in order to look at things in a different way.”

Creativity can be learned.  Creative skills can be developed and enhanced.  We all possess the ability.  Everyone has the potential and the capacity to be creative.  Each of us finds creative solutions every day, whether we recognize them or not.  The ability to create and innovate in any area can be improved through increased understanding of creative method and diligent practice of creative skills. 

Imagine for a moment a vast increase in your creative capacity.  You can create as much, innovate as much as you want.  What does that feel like?  How does it feel to have greater creative skill than you have ever had before?  This course is designed to get you there.

This course, like all great courses, requires you to be active in your own development.

The work ahead is challenging.  Getting great benefits will require solid effort.  I strongly recommend you complete every training and practise exercise and that you do so in a space where you are comfortable and free from distraction.  You will also need to be in a space where you can write with pen and paper on hand.  I’m certain that if you study each lesson with an open mind and work through each training session to the best of your ability, a new level of creativity and creative mastery can be attained by the end of this course. 

Learn to innovate.  Learn to be more productive.  Learn the strategies of creative genius.

Let’s get started.
