Boost Your Creative Intelligence

Front Cover
Kogan Page Publishers, 2002 - Business & Economics - 232 pages

We have all at one time or another experienced a great flash of inspiration, or been on a 'roll' when everything seems to go right, or found a better way of doing something we have been doing for years. For most of us, though, such things are all too infrequent. But now neurological experts have identified how and why these amazing experiences occur, which has led to a breakthrough in creative thinking and problem-solving skills. Drawing on this research, Harry Alder shows us how we can now perform at peak levels and consistently succeed in areas that would have once seemed impossible. His thought-provoking and absorbing guide will inspire anyone to understand the creative process and shows that through self-analysis one can: *achieve a great deal more with little effort *increase levels of inspiration and creativity *experience prolonged periods of peak performance *add a vital new dimension to one's intellectual and emotional intelligence *share some of the thinking patterns of the world's greatest achievers *take the hit and miss element out of personal achievement *know the pleasure of fulfilling the most important goals in one's life.
