Gifted leaders, especially creative thinkers, are the hope of our future. Many of the characteristics of the creatively gifted also imply potential for leadership development: preference for complexity, original solutions to problems, refusal to accept the status quo, and extreme sensitivity and idealism. However, this potential is often neither recognized, nor fully developed.

In this course you will learn:

  • The connection between characteristics of creativity and of leadership
  • How creativity and leadership intersect with the characteristics of gifted individuals
  • Ways to develop skills that can enhance both creativity and leadership potential
