Hi everyone and welcome to the brand new Idea to Value podcast.

A lot of people have been asking me for months whether I would consider putting my knowledge and insights of creativity and innovation into a Podcast, which people could listen to whenever and wherever they liked.

Some people also tell me they learn much more effectively by listening than by reading, so I thought this would be a great way to reach more people.

In this very first episode, #001, I cover the following topics:

  • What is Idea to Value all about?
  • Who am I, Nick Skillicorn?
  • What you can expect from the podcast
  • An introduction into why so many people feel they are not creative
    • The myth of the left-brain / right-brain divide
    • The academic study of creativity
    • The difference between “Big C” and “little c” creativity
    • Whether creativity is something we are born with or whether it is nurtured
    • How the brain’s ability to spot patterns affects creativity
    • The importance of breaking through comfort barriers
    • Learned helplessness

I hope you like the first episode, and look forward to sharing new insights with you like this regularly.
