How not to kill talent and creativity

Following an article in this months excellent Wired Magazine, I visited the TED website to browse through their archive of talks. (Delegates pay $4500 to go, and we get the talks for gratis – lovely model – read more here).

One such talk was by Sir Ken Robinson on Schools Kill Creativity.

“Face the fear of being wrong.” Originality is born from mistakes, and if you can’t accept failure, don’t expect originality. This reminded me of Paul Arden talking about creativity: “If you don’t share your ideas, how will you ever find new ones.”
