Creativity, the Gift of Failure, and the Search for Mastery
Learning Solutions Conference & Expo 2019 - March 27, 2019
Assistant Professor, Harvard and Author, The Rise: Creativity, the Gift of Failure, and the Search for Mastery
Where do new innovations—new ideas—spring from? Sarah Lewis offers a new understanding of what enables creative endeavors. What really drives iconic, transformational change on both a personal and an organizational level? From Nobel Prize–winning discoveries to works of art, many of our creative triumphs are not achievements, but conversions, corrections after failed attempts. Drawing on figures such as Frederick Douglass, Angela Duckworth, J.K. Rowling, and others, Dr. Lewis reveals the importance of play, grit, surrender, often-ignored ideas, and the necessary experiments and follow-up attempts that lead to true breakthroughs. Smart, uplifting, and counterintuitive, this keynote will help change the way you think about creativity, innovation, and mastery.
